Wunderlist coming to Windows Phone… eventually

Wunderlist has announced version 3 of their new cloud-based task management app/service.

The popular Germany-based service allows users to create lists to manage their to-dos which can be shared with other Wunderlist users.

So far the app has not been available on Windows Phone, though 3rd party clients do exist.

On their blog however company representatives said they are working on a Windows 8 version of the app, and expect to publish a Windows Phone version based on that code-base.

Is this an app our users have been missing? Let us know below.

Who needs Sapphire glass? Watch the Nokia Lumia 930 being attacked with a knife

Much has been made of the upcoming iPhone 6’s unscratchable Sapphire glass, but the above video by Adrianisen on YouTube shows that the Gorilla Glass 3 on the Nokia Lumia 930 is no slouch either, allowing him to play a not horrible game of Fruit Ninja with a rather large knife without any ill effects.

See his channel for more videos pitting the Lumia 930 against other handsets.

Monty Python’s The Ministry of Silly Walks Game coming to Windows Phone, but only if you make yourself heard

The Monty Python crew has released a Ministry of Silly Walks themed game, and apparently due to “silly demand” the team are bringing it to Windows Phone also.

However John Cleese has not been happy with the response to his announcement and threatened:

If you want what looks like a pretty fun app to show up on Windows Phone I suggest you add your voices to the 300-odd other Monty Python fans and demand delivery here.

Hack lets Cortana sing in Chinese

China will be one of the first countries to receive Cortana support after it escapes from the USA, and Windows Blog Italia reports that work is already well underway, with a simple (unrevealed) hack allowing users to download the Chinese language pack and let Cortana start speaking in Chinese.

Unfortunately questions still have to be asked in English, but I suspect it will not be long before the hack becomes official and this will stop being an issue.

New Nokia video promotes the Lumia 930 and the One Windows Experience

Microsoft has posted a new promotional video for their Nokia Lumia 930, and in this beautifully shot ad they promote the integration between Windows Phones, Windows tablets and Windows PCs. 

The ad is however rather subtle, and I wonder if a few videos which explain the features such as synchronizing tabs and universal apps and so forth may not be necessary to educate the public.

What do our readers think? Let us know below.

Another peek at WP8.1’s dynamic lock screens (video)

NokiaWPBlog has managed to dig up a fascinating video from February this year, uploaded by M4XW1N which shows a lock screen app on Windows Phone 8.1.

Unlike the others which we have seen shown off at BUILD 2014, which just provides a fancy animations when you unlock, this one appears to show dynamic album art reminiscent of the Zune music player.

It also shows that the music control drop down in earlier builds included album art, something which appears unfortunately to have been dropped.

We understand dynamic lock screen apps are awaiting the final go-ahead from Microsoft, but are still certainly on the way.

See the original Twitpic here.

Great concept of what a Microsoft smart watch should look like (video)

The rumour at present is that we can expect to see a Microsoft smart watch some time in October.

If its anything as good as this concept video by Omar Pirela then I think it will be an instant buy.

His smart watch features a Magnesium Ceramic body, curved touchscreen AMOLED, 100 meters water resistance, streamlined profile, is discrete and luxurious, with a useful notification system and a simplified navigation.

The device relies on a high resolution screen packed with content and Windows Phone-smooth scrolling.

Microsoft’s own smart watch is rumoured be a more prosaic affair, with a lower resolution screen and health and fitness focus.

What do our readers think of this concept? Let us know below.
