Anyone know if there are any hidden camera apps that run? 8.1 killed my battery life and when I look at usage the camera is 2nd on the list even though I wasn't using it.


you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

Interesting! So does that mean since I bought Halo: SA last week for Win8, I can now get it free on WP? It must suck for people who paid for both last week when they went on sale.

Seems so. Apparently you need 8.1 on your phone because of the newer store version and the process isn't super clear. I've heard if you own it on Win8 and go into the store on your phone and hit buy it'll tell you that you already own it, but I can't try it out for myself and confirm.

I try buying both but my memory for my surface 2 and windows 8 phone was full.. so hopefully and does that mean are we not going to have separate achievements?

It has been working for some people. I haven't been able to get it to work from WP to Win8 for Skulls. Even after getting a Marketplace update today. Probably will be more available once 8.1 is closer to official release.

Should still have separate achievements, at least for the games currently released (like Spartan Assault and Skulls).

I bought it on WP last week and it's still trying to charge me on Win8.  It looks like I got screwed.

Sweet! I almost picked this one up last week, but got side tracked. I thought MS didn't allow the price for Win8 games to go below $1.49. I'll pick this up later today. LOL $1 saved. I'll probably just pick the WP version with it.  :)

$1.99. I just checked from the trial by clicking purchase full version. Even now that it's on sale, upgrading in-game to full still asks for $1.99

 

On those freebies, is there anyway to download the games so that when I do upgrade from my 521 I'll have those games available to me? Similar to an Xbox game. Download it on the website then it'll be in your download history for when you really need it.

They recently announced new pricing tiers.

I'm hoping Shark Dash becomes universal. Just got it free on 1020

I thought Fifa 14 is supposed to be free. Maybe that was a limited time offer.

 

A few months ago, I was looking for a Killer Instinct app that showed move lists so that I could look at them without pausing my game. I didn't find any. All the Killer Instinct apps were from before Xbox One came out. They were horribly outdated. I heard making apps on Windows Phone was supposed to be easy with App Studio, so that's exactly what I did. Took maybe a couple hours to make, but most of that was testing what it would look like on my phone and changing small details. With 8.1, you are able to project your screen to your PC. I know you could before, but it was more of a slideshow and didn't look smooth at all (unless there was a way I didn't know about). Because of this, I made a video of the app and put it on YouTube. If anybody is interested in it, let me know and I can send you a link to it. You will need an App Studio account and Windows Phone 8 or 8.1, unless they changed something.

 

It is missing Spinal and Fulgore. If I can figure out how to publish it to the Marketplace, I'll see about adding them. I wouldn't release it to the Marketplace without them.

 

Note that I didn't make the move lists themselves. They were made by dav3yb at SRK. He gave me permission to use them in the app and offered to make Spinal/Fulgore several months ago. I'm hoping that offer still stands.

Anyone know if those Nokia games for select devices are still free? They never said anything about that promotion so I don't know what's going on with it. Won't have my phone ordered and delivered until the 22nd.

Try searching for them in the Store. There will be the normal paid version and then another version that is free. Some of the titles are slightly different, but still the same game. For example Brain Challenge™ HD is just Brain Challenge for the free version.

EDIT: I'm using 1020 with 8.1, not sure if that matters.

no luck. People on wpcentral were reporting the same on the most recent comments. But you can still access them or was that just the other day?

Are there certain ones that aren't showing up? I only checked Brain Challenge and Order & Chaos last night. Just checked O&C again and free version is still there.

none of them show in the store regardless of how far I scroll or what I search for. And the direct links show the page but the games are listed as unavailable. The Lumia icon was one of the phones listed that this was supposed to work for.

This is probably not the best place to ask this, but straight up: How do you guys like your Windows phones compared to iPhone and Android?

 

I had an iPhone5 and just last week traded it in for an HTC One M8 android phone. I'm liking the Android so far, but I've always been interested in the Windows Phone platform. I've kinda messed around with them in the store, but I figured I would ask some people that have actually had them for a while.

I've never used a higher end Windows Phone before (Just my 520) but I really like the experience coming from iOS and Android. The phone itself is very smooth with little to no lag despite the lower end hardware, and I honestly have fallen in love with Windows Phones UI. The Live title interface is great, and I just like how everything flows together in WP8.1

 

App Wise I'm surprised that there is a lot of apps on the platform now. There are some I'm still waiting on like my Bank App/Investor App, Vudu's app and I think somebody needs to make a CAG app for it.

 

Honestly I was never very happy with Android. I used a lot of different phones and I just never had a very good experience with them. I think it's because I'm not one of those people who wants to go through the hassle of "Flashing/Rooting" if I have any issues, and I had a LOT of issues caused by bad carrier updates and the like.

iOS is always a great experience, I've just gotten bored with it and I like mixing my phone OS up every upgrade.
