Unofficial Snapchat client, Swapchat now available for Windows Phone

125

We've previously looked at Swapchat, an unofficial Snapchat client for Windows Phone, which has been in beta testing for some time now. Much like Instagram, until an official offering is presently available, developers will look to capitalise on the absence with an app of their own. While we're heard from multiple sources that an official Snapchat app is on its way, it's good to see third-party alternatives for consumers to enjoy.

Voice Butler for Windows Phone 8; A personal assistant app for everything from checking the weather to snapping a photo

17

Voice Butler is a fairly simple voice command app for your Windows Phone that will help you do a wide range of tasks that includes checking the weather and set alarms. It'll even let you take a photo using a self-timer.

The app itself is more or less a help directory and on/off switches for alarms and timers you set. While there's not much window dressing for Voice Butler it does have a healthy range of voice commands that can be initiated with or without the app open.

If you're looking for a voice command app for your Windows Phone 8 device, Voice Butler is one to consider.

BulletAsylum joins the Windows Phone Red Stripe Deals of the week

21

Windows Phone 8 gamers are currently enjoying this week’s new Xbox title, the delightfully free and also just plain delightful Jetpack Joyride. But you can never have too many games, especially when you’re addicted to Xbox Achievements. Your mouth gets dry, the shakes start to set in, and only a new game will keep you from eating a family sized bag of Whoppers (wrapper and all) in your delirium.

Enter the Xbox Red Stripe Deal of the Week, only too eager to ease the pain! The latest weekly sale title is BulletAsylum from UberGeekGames. Normally priced at $2.99, it’s now discounted to 99 cents. BulletAsylum previously went on sale for $1.99 once in May 2012, so this is a better deal… Probably what the game should always have cost, in fact.

The new non-Xbox Red Stripe Deals are indie game Chicken Invaders 3 from Betacom and popular instant messaging app IM+ Pro. Both cost only a dollar this week, which is an especially good deal for the normally $5 IM+ Pro. Read on for more details, screenshots, and download links!

Nokia Lumia 925: Ships in two days for Germany Vodafone customers

33

The Nokia Lumia 925 is a nice variant of the Lumia 920. Its aluminum construction allows it to be thinner and lighter, but at the expense of wireless charging. Still, the camera is slightly improved from the Lumia 920 since the Lumia 925 packs 6 lenses versus 5. That allows for sharper images. And if you’re in Germany and hoping to get this device your pre-orders ship in the next two days.

More pics on the Nokia EOS Windows Phone find the light of day [Updated: new images]

411

Update: We've added some new shots of the EOS below that have been published over on GSMArena.

Earlier today we shared some leaked images of what is reported to be Nokia's EOS Windows Phone. It didn't take long and a few more pictures have surfaced highlighting the 41MP camera.

ViziLeaks posted two images on their Twitter page showing the backside of the phone and the Pureview Camera. If these photos are accurate, the camera will have a huge (by smartphone standards) flash, what looks like a focus assist light and maybe a retractable lens cover.  

Or is that just glare hiding the lens?.

Nokia's Lumia 920 PureView camera shows off Vienna at night

19

We're already aware of just how effective the camera on the Lumia 920 is, but here are some shots taken by Fabian Pimminger in Vienna, Austria. Yes, they look that good. Now we understand that a fairly expensive camera will take just as good (if not better) shots, but we're talking about a Windows Phone here. You know, a device that you use for making calls and playing some Angry Birds when work becomes rather boring.
