Watch Corner Gas is a Windows Phone 8 entertainment app that delivers the Canadian sitcom Corner Gas to your phone. Watch Corner Gas lets you stream all 107 episodes of the Canadian sitcom Corner Gas which ran from 2004 to 2009. The comedy series is described as "the Canadian version of Seinfeld" and in just checking out a few episodes, I can see the comparison.
On a side note the app was developed in part with the relatively new Microsoft App Studio and later fine tuned in Visual Studio. The App Studio was designed to show app developers how to build a full Windows Phone app prototype without any programming code, all from a web browser. An effort to make it easier for developers to jump on board with Windows Phone.
Watch Corner Gas's developers found the service rather handy and the result is an appealing Windows Phone app that delivers Canadian humor to our Windows Phones.
Watch Corner Gas is laid out in clean, straight forward fashion with pages listing all 107 episodes, listing the various characters of the show, and a more info page that gives you a little background on the show from various sources such as Wikipedia and IMDb.
Episodes are streamed using the default Windows Phone video player and it is noted that some episodes are in 4:3 standard format with later episodes stretching to 16:10 format. The smaller 4:3 format does seem a little cramped at first (not much you can do about that) but video quality is good and streaming smooth.
You also have lockscreen support to use a photo of the iconic Corner Gas station as your Windows Phone lockscreen wallpaper.
If you're a fan of the show or just looking for an entertaining, funny show to watch from your Windows Phone Watch Corner Gas is worth looking into. It is a free, ad supported app available for Windows Phone 8. You can get rid of the ads through a $.99 in-app purchase.
You can find Watch Corner Gas here in the Windows Phone Store.
