Sygic's speedometer app with integrated dash cam now exclusive to Windows Phone

67

Operating a car in 2014 is still in many ways like driving 20 years ago. However, technology is making a big push in our automobiles these days, especially with smartphones. One popular trend, particularly in Russia, is the dashboard camera. In many countries, drivers have taken to scamming insurance companies to collect money by faking accidents (or overplaying the severity of real ones). As a solution, motorists now record their movements, much like the police, for use if something happens

Sygic has just updated their Speedometer app for Windows Phone 8. Speedometer already features a GPS-Based based speedometer to set alerts, 50,000 fixed speed and red-light camera locations and community reporting feature with worldwide coverage but it's the dashboard camera feature that piqued our interest.

Microsoft releases Video Tuner to mix your movies on Windows Phone 8.1

290

Today, Microsoft has released their new Video Tuner app for Windows Phone 8.1 users. The app brings a full suite of video editing options to the table and is based on of the latest Imaging SDK 1.2. Although there are some third-party video editing apps for the OS, Video Tuner adds filters and some unique features.

Video Tuner allows Windows Phone users to trim, crop, rotate, flip, mirror, and speed change. The changes made are dynamic, so users can see the effect right away as the video is still playing on the phone. When creating a video, you can also add music through the music library on the device, letting people make an attractive creation.

61

The Windows Phone Central Forums is a great place to visit when you're in the mood to chat it up about Windows Phone. One area of the forums that is always full of surprises is the Developers Beta Testing forums. You can get a sneak peek at what apps and games are in the works or sign up to beta test these Windows Phone titles.

One app caught our attention the other day and while it's yet another Windows Phone weather app, Weathr is being re-written to take advantage of new Windows Phone 8.1 features. There is a current version of Weathr available in the Windows Phone Store but the developer wants to put the new version through the ringer and needs beta testers to help identify bugs, glitches and areas of improvement.

Rival Knights Review - An explosive game for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8

54

Rival Knights is a new action game from Gameloft for both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. The game puts you in the saddle of a horse, jousting your way through medieval knight after knight.

The fast-paced game has tons of equipment upgrades and horses to purchase with your winnings and the 3D graphics are rather spot on. Game play reminds me a bit of the drag racing games where you tap to shift gears in order to pick up speed. However with Rival Knights you have the opportunity to knock your opponent on their keister at the end of the race.

The game is available for 512MB devices and is a fantastic way to pass the time.
