Microsoft has announced that windows 10 will be released for PC and tablets on July 29 with the mobile version following later in the year.
Xiaomi and Microsoft have tied up and a Windows 10 ROM for the Mi4 has been released. The tool to install the ROM will be made available to only a select set of users for now as it is still in the beta stage.
Could this be the game changing moment for Microsoft. The much dreamed of Windows Mobile and Android combination? Only time will tell and as far as we’re concerned, we love the idea.
Advice to our readers: Please refrain from installing Windows 10 mobile preview on your device unless it is your secondary device. On the Lumia 630 dual sim it was buggy and also during the install, the phone was bricked and needed to be recovered using the Nokia retail tool and other steps which took a full day. If this has happened to you, please contact us and we’ll help you.
Most of us have played on the famous Nintendo Gameboys. Most of us remember games like Super Mario and Pokemon on the Gameboy. You can now get all nostalgic and relive those moments by playing these games on your Windows Phone.
VDA8 is one such app. It allows you to import ROMs from your Onedrive account or even from your SD card. The interface is clean and easy to use. We enjoyed playing our old games using this app.
As for the question from where to get the ROMs…just search for them online and you’re bound to find them.
Most of us carry our phones with us where ever we go and some people literally follow that rule.
By the time we’re done with this segment your phone will be your central hub, all the way from music to jotting down notes.
We’ll kick off the entertainment section with the audio and motion category for windows phones. Audio and Motion
1.) TuneIn radio– The perfect audio companion if you have 3G/4G/Wi-Fi access. You can choose from thousands of online radio stations and listen to music, news and even talk shows.
Hint- This app is great for discovering new music and for listening to music according to genre. One classic rock song after another with no songs full of sobbing in between 😉 is what we’re talking about.
2.) Sound Hound– I personally recommend this over shazam as I find it more accurate, faster and feature filled. You can also discover new music, see which are the hottest songs and listen to snippets of them.
3.) easyRing & music, mega tube(unpublished unfortunately but …) and tube pro we have already reviewed but once again easyRing & music save us the headache called zune and is quite convenient to get tracks from youtube, megatube and tube pro let you download or watch youtube videos.
4.)Netflix– netflix is currently available within U.S. territories so we living outside have no access to its content(well not directly atleast…hint-VPN). Great content and videos resumable across multiple devices. A must have for those lucky people.
