56

If you have a Microsoft Band, you need to download this app right away! Pimp my Band for Windows Phone lets you change your Band wallpaper with any image or photo you want. By default, the official Microsoft Health app limits your choices to what they have included. Pimp my Band adds even more personalization.

Appy Weather for Windows Phone gets updated, adds lockscreen support and more

33

Appy Weather is a unique Windows Phone weather app in that it presents the weather in a more personal manner. The app takes on the weather forecast with a minimal approach, delivers a healthy amount of information and presents the information not only in a "nuts and bolts" manner but also suggest what the temperature will feel like or how the forecasted conditions will compare to your current conditions.

The Windows Phone weather app was updated today to version 1.2, which adds lockscreen support with the ability to use Bing images or custom photos from your Pictures Hub. App Weather is a well-received weather app in the Windows Phone Store and on first impression, the updates only adds to the appeal of this weather app.

Exclusive: Order & Chaos Online returns next week, new Gameloft games to get Xbox support

64

Last year, Gameloft unleashed the first and only Xbox-enabled MMORPG on Windows Phone: Order & Chaos Online. While Order & Chaos Online is basically a World of Warcraft clone, it's also an utterly massive and compelling game – especially for a phone game. If we had a game like that on Xbox consoles, I'd never leave the house (and now we kind of do, thanks to Onigiri).

Unfortunately, Order & Chaos Online suffered from a few frustrating bugs like uncompletable dungeons and unpurchasable pets, not to mention graphical glitches on the Lumia 1520. Gameloft last updated the game in August 2013, just before deciding to drop Xbox support on its Windows Phone and Windows 8 titles.

Don't despair! Windows Central is proud to announce that Order & Chaos Online is not only going to be updated next week, it's also launching on Windows 8 and RT – with Xbox support. Read on for exclusive details on the update and Gameloft's future plans for Windows Phone and Windows 8.

MX Player is legit for Windows and Windows Phone, but still early 'prototype'

122

Yesterday we reported on MX Player arriving for Windows and Windows Phone. Considering that the player is massively popular on Android (partially due to poor native playback on that platform), MX Player arriving on Windows and Windows Phone could be perceived as nothing but good news.

However, at the time we expressed uncertainty as to its legitimacy for various reasons, including the developer not mentioning its existence. Because of this, we would held off on celebrating until we could confirm whether it was real or not (our emails to the developer went unanswered). Today, we can finally say that yes, it is real but we are looking at some very early stages of development.
