Sygic releases their super smooth Sygic GPS Navigation app for Windows Phone

154

Back in December, we brought you the news that Sygic was poised to bring their GPS Navigation app to Windows Phone. For the last few weeks, it has been in an active private beta but today it is available to everyone, worldwide.

Sygic GPS Navigation was the first Nav app for the iPhone back in 2009 and today their app is powering 75 million users on Android and iOS. Now, Windows Phone users get access to Sygic's extensive mapping data (provided by TomTom), which excels in regions where others tend to fail, especially in Eastern Europe. Sygic also has an attractive speedometer app for Windows Phone that can be much fun.

I have been using Sygic GPS Navigation for a few weeks now, and it is something to try.

Lumia 530 and 630 make big gains, Lumia 535 a hit in India but Windows Phone flagships are scarce

280

Latest AdDuplex numbers reflect Microsoft's gains from yesterday with the Lumia 535 becoming a hit

Yesterday, Microsoft released their FY2015 Q2 numbers demonstrating year-on-year and sequential growth for their Lumia smartphones. Although selling 10.5 million phones in one-quarter can be seen as a drop in the bucket when compared to Apple or Samsung, it is rather impressive. Microsoft posted gains during a time when the OS is in transition, and no new Lumia flagship was announced.

This morning, AdDuplex, who runs a very popular cross-promotion advertising network on Windows and Windows Phone, posted their latest stats about the ecosystem. Collected from 4,995 different apps (not users) the AdDuplex report paints what is considered the most accurate picture of the landscape.

The story is the same, in many ways, from previous reports: low cost and budget phones rule the roost for Windows Phone. This time, the Lumia 530 and Lumia 635 make significant strides globally while the Lumia 535 is taking off in India.

Zombie's Got a Pogo, an endless bouncer game for Windows Phone

19

Zombie's Got a Pogo is an odd sort of an endless runner game available in the Windows Phone Store. As you would guess with the title of this Windows Phone game, you try to keep your Zombie in one piece as you guide him over various obstacles.

Simple controls, challenging game play and quality graphics helps give Zombie's Got a Pogo a nice level of appeal. The game is available for low-memory devices and while not the most feature rich Windows Phone game that features Zombies, it is a fun title to pass the time with.
