    Hmm… something wrong with the page formatting? I thought IE10 on my phone messed up the page but it seems like it’s the same on my PC…

    • Ali copy-pasted the text from the Windows Phone Store and it took the text formatting with it. 😛

      • Yeah dunno what’s up with wordpress; it’s refusing to remove the text formatting back to default; tried for about 5 minutes then gave up :/

          I updated post to include link and also fixed the formatting 😉

        • What I do when copying texts from webpages is paste them first to Notepad, then copy it from there and paste to editor. 🙂

    oh cool

    I have issue searching it in my country’s store 🙁

    It’s available if I use en-us store and then switch to my country but I can’t do direct search. I end up changing phone’s region to USA to get this and then switch back…

    Finally! Just down loaded it, did a test. Works perfect.

    now I have confirmation something screwed up with LTE in Los Angeles County. I’m only getting 0.754Mbps download, buy 5.0+ Mbps upload.
    Fix it, AT&T

      I only have a Lumia 900 (WP7) and use an app called “my speed test”. In San Diego I get 5.639Mbps download and 1.379Mbps upload. While these aren’t spectacular speeds for LTE, they’re pretty decent. Hope AT&T fixes the issues in LA.

        Interesting: Here in London LTE is just available but I’ve stayed with o2 (mobile provider) and their 3G+ service (which I have unlimited data & minutes for £20 per month) and I ran Speedtest yesterday on my Lumia 920 (unlocked and SIM-free). Stats are: Download 10.00 Mbps; Upload 1.06 Mbps. Given this data why do I need ‘slow’ LTE and at a greater monthly cost?

        It would be interesting to see what other people are getting.

    “…Available for Windows Phone…” OH YAYYY! “…8. Only.” Baww.

      It seems that WP is starting to gain some real application support.

      It’s very hard to believe that Nokia would have this much applications if they had continued with MeeGo and Symbian. After all, there were no Qt applications to be ported. On the other hand making a WP version is not that hard compared to a Qt version.

      Actually some games can be ported from iOS to WP8 with small (really) amount of additional coding. This is great news for those people waiting for more games. It’s also quite sensible to design new a game you can run both on iOS and WP8.
