Canadian theater chain Cineplex Cinemas has introduced an interactive gaming app called TimePlay where users will be rewarded with prizes and loyalty apps.

TimePlay allows users to challenge their friends or a theater full of strangers with interactive gameplay. The app, previously available or Android, BlackBerry, and iOS users has now reached Windows Phone allowing multi-player game play on a secondary screen. The mini games within the app will be continually updated and users can take advantage of special offers when they play.

Back in June, Windows Central reported that TD Bank was working on apps for Windows Phone. At the time, we noted that the initial release may be limited to just Canada with a wider rollout coming later. Just as expected, this is exactly what is happening.

Today, Windows Phone users in Canada can download the official TD Bank app and get their bank on when they are out on the town.

Blu, purveyor of low-cost Windows phones, can now be found in Microsoft Stores in Canada. The pair of Windows Phones had previously only been available from Blu and Microsoft Stores in the United States.

Recently, Rogers became one of the first carriers in Canada to acquire the Lumia 830 'affordable flagship' smartphone. At the time, we noted that this did not preclude other carriers from getting the phone as well, which is great for those who have a strong distaste for Rogers.

Windows Phone Central has now confirmed with people familiar with the matter that Bell is slated to launch the Lumia 830 on October 15. Unfortunately, pricing information is not available, though we have seen internal references for the launch to verify its authenticity.
