INcode is a useful lookup directory for India for all your codes

68

While usually I report on some terrific apps on the Windows Phone Store (and some not-so-good ones too) here on Windows Phone Central, this post is different. Today I share my first Windows Phone app with the readers - the community that's more aware and usually critical, in a useful way.

On a daily basis, we look up details of a national highway in India, a region associated with a license plate number, or MICR code of your bank branch. A couple of months ago, I set out to build a one-stop app where one could find all these 'codes of India', and hence the name, INcode.

Weekly photo contest: Sunrise

Let's get out and shoot more. I thought it would be fun if we had a weekly photo contest here on the site. How about every Wednesday we'll pick a theme, and you have until next Tuesday to go out and use your Windows Phone to capture the image. Our first theme? Let's do sunrise.

Shoggoth Rising looks absolutely insane, from iOS and Android to universal app on Windows and Windows Phone

80

Let's get one thing out of the way already. The visuals for this game look absolutely insane. Shoggoth Rising has originally launched on iOS and Android last December, but now it's on Windows Phone, too. You play as Ned, who has survived a shipwreck. You found a lighthouse, but you're far from being safe. Waves of sea creatures are going after you and you need to kill them before they kill you.

Head past the break to watch our gameplay video on the Nokia Lumia 930.

Review - Nokia MD-12 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

111

In April, Nokia announced a new accessory called the MD-12 speaker. It features Bluetooth 3.0 HS (High Speed), which is ideal for power consumption, and it weighs only 180 grams. The big selling point though for this $50 accessory is the "guaranteed" 15-hours of battery life for playback, which is impressive.

On Sunday, I reported that Microsoft Stores have begun to sell the MD-12, which is a good thing since it can be hard to find, especially in the US. For $50 (plus free ground shipping), you are not risking much, but is the sound any good?

Zomato gets another update; adds more cities in India and enters Chile

18

Zomato is a popular restaurant finder Windows Phone app that gives you recommendations for restaurants in your area and lets you look at menus, pictures, contact info, and directions. Available in over forty cities across the United Kingdom, India, Brazil, the UAE, New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, Turkey, Portugal, the Philippines, Qatar, and Sri Lanka, the Windows Phone app was recently updated to version 5 with a complete design and user experience refresh.

After the major refresh, the app continues to get quick updates, and has just received the fourth update in three months. The app has now been updated to version 5.4.0.0, and brings in some new features. The app's also lighter, and definitely faster (So, yeah, I've pre-empted a lot of comments!) across the board.

Nokia Lumia 1520 'country variants' receiving Lumia Cyan worldwide

330

Yesterday, we reported that the unlocked Lumia 1520.3 variant started to receive the Lumia Cyan update. That phone works on AT&T and T-Mobile with LTE and is considered a prized win for consumers willing to spend the extra money. As it turns out, many country variants (CV) of the Lumia 1520 are now getting the Lumia Cyan update with Windows Phone 8.1. Unfortunately, many carriers are still listed as 'under testing.'

As usual, we have gone through and accumulated all the countries and regions that are now eligible for the Lumia Cyan update, in addition to updating our tracker page.

No need to dress warm, Neverwinter MMO coming to Xbox One in 2015

56

At the beginning of the month, Perfect World Entertainment revealed that its popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) Neverwinter would be coming to the Xbox One in China. Announcing a game for the Chinese market and announcing it for the rest of the world are two different things. Today it became official: Neverwinter will arrive on Xbox One worldwide (following this year's Chinese release) in 2015!
