Windows Phone YouTube apps updated to address YouTube Vevo changes

wp_ss_20140725_0002

In the absence of an official YouTube app for Windows Phone, 3rd party YouTube apps are in a constant race to keep up with Google’s backend changes.

Thankfully Windows Phone developers are a diligent bunch, and work hard to keep their apps updated.

YouTube has made recent changes to how Vevo music videos are streamed,  and in response Tubecast, SuperTube, MetroTube and AllTube Player Pro have all updated their apps.

If your music video therefore is not playing, we suggest looking out for an update to your preferred player.

It’s official: BBM coming to all Windows Phone users next week

On the official Blackberry blog today Matthew Talbot wrote that Blackberry is coming to all Windows Phone users next week.

He writes:

Next up is BBM for Windows Phone, coming next week. When we announced the private beta a few weeks ago, all 10,000 testing slots were taken within 24 hours. The excitement is there. The numbers are there. The momentum is there.

Despite many that have said there is little interest in Blackberry Messenger 10,000 testers in 24 hours sends a different message.

VLC for WP8 to hit beta soon

Good news for all those VLC fans.  The powerful app is still on its way, with the team’s designer posting on twitter that he was working hard to get a functional beta for Windows Phone  by next week.

Classic Lines — classic version of puzzle game updated for Windows Phone and now Windows 8.1 ready!

Classic Lines Classic Lines Classic Lines

The game starts with a 9×9 board with three balls chosen out of seven different colors. The player can move one ball per turn, and the player may only move a ball to a particular place if there is a path (linked set of vertical and horizontal empty cells) between the current position of the ball and the desired destination.

The goal is to remove balls by forming lines (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) of at least five balls of the same color. If the player does form such lines of at least five balls of the same color, the balls in those lines disappear, and he gains one turn, i.e. he can move another ball. If not, three new balls are added, and the game continues until the board is full.

Classic Lines

Features:

  • Classic design style of the game.
  • Portrait and landscape orientation support.
  • Live tiles support.
  • Autosave game on exit.
  • Local and world-wide (top 100 players) rating lists.

Download the Classic Lines game here from Windows Phone Store.
