It seems to suggest that the whole ‘NOKIA by Microsoft’ thing might just be a way to fully transition the Nokia name out of […]

A popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena from Gameloft, Heroes of Order and Chao, is available in store. Some might compare it to a mobile League of Legends. Whilst it is rated highly in both iOS/Android stores, it seems to suffer some stability issues, hence possibly the 1GB Ram requirement. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/heroes-of-order-chaos/5f92f517-8f24-4857-a15d-83087f414234 Via

ITV Player joins BBC and Channel 4 with WP8 apps. From the screenshots, it looks decent, like they’ve made an effort for the Metro/Modern Panoramic UI. As a version 1, it doesn’t seem to have the dynamic bandwidth feature of the new BBC iPlayer whereby it can let you watch automatically in lower quality if […]
