Trine's Hangman updated and gets a price reduction

If you like playing word games on your Windows Phone, Trine's Hangman is one of the best out there. It's a simple game of hangman that is graphically well presented and you compete against other players around the world for global ranking. You have Wikipedia integration, achievements, and free ringtones. The game also has one of the best video trailers out there (see below).

The new version of Trine's Hangman, v1.20, is designed to make the game more user and budget friendly. The update makes the game more user friendly by making the ads less frequent, appearing after every eight words completed instead of after every three. Trine's is also more budget friendly for those who don't want ads with the price dropping down to $.99.

Along with updating Trine's Hangman, Gydar Industries is also focusing on a new game (no details as of yet) that will be both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 compatible. The new game will support seamless play between the PC and Windows Phone. So you can play on the go and continue where you left off on your computer when you get home.

Again, if you like word games you need to give Trine's Hangman a try. Trine's Hangman comes in two versions. You have Trine's Hangman with is a free, ad-supported version that you can find here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.  

You also have Trine's Hangman Pro which has a trial version that is identical to the full version but is ad supported. The ad free version of Trine's Hangman Pro is now running $.99 and well worth the buck investment. You can find Trine's Hangman Pro here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Yesterday we showed you Trines 'Appointment & Task Mover', which seems to be a great solution to a complicated problem.

Going forward, Trines seem to be set on programming for Windows Phone 7 as well and they showed off two new apps: Hangman and Lightning Timer.

The first is just the classic game with customized backgrounds. While nothing extraordinary, it is certainly done with style and looks quite nice.

The second is a method to determine how close a lightning strike is to your location based on temperature, speed, etc. We're sure you weather fanatics know how it all works.

Check the video after the break to seem them in action.

We've heard this complaint a lot from people who travel and while we can't verify its level of annoyance, it seems it is pretty high on the list.

Basically, for some of you power people in the world, you require the ability to "shift" all (or a large chunk) of your appointments and/or tasks to different times or days. Certainly a tedious task by any standard and there is no easy way to do it, regardless of PIM choice.

Long story short, a retired IBM 'er had this recurring problem and asked a programmer to write up a solution. The result? Trines Appointment and Task Mover, available in the Marketplace for $9.99.

While a bit pricey, the solution itself seems elegant enough and hey, if this can shave some frustrating work on such a boring task, it could be money well invested.

The app is demoed in the two videos below, so you can get an idea of how it works and what to expect. More info can be found here. Feel free to share your solutions in comments, if you share a similar problem and we'll see about getting a proper WMExperts review up of this app sometime soon, if you folks want it.

[Thanks, Jochen, for the tip!]
