WPCentral News

Over the last week, some users have been experiencing issues with the WPCentral app for Windows Phone and our massive forums. Specifically, users are getting error messages when trying to access the feature through the app. I let you know last week about the problem, when we re-launched our mobile site, and that our developer Jay Bennett would address the issue as soon as he came back from vacation.

Today, version v4.5.5.915 is now live in the Store and brings along with it that hotfix for the forum issues. The update should resolve any connecting issues that people with Windows Phone 8 and higher were having.

Over the last few weeks, www.wpcentral.com has been undergoing some changes in design. The first part was the header at the top displaying featured articles, or news stories related to what you are reading. We then followed up with up and down voting on the main site. Over the last 24-hours, we have been tweaking the mobile version of Windows Phone Central, found at m.wpcentral.com.

I'm sitting here waiting for UPS to deliver my Ghost Edition of Destiny for the Xbox One. I won't lie; I'm super jealous of all you guys and gals already playing without me. That said, even though you may be playing it already, you'll need to find some extra players to complete things like raids in Destiny. Don't have a busy friends list on Xbox Live? You're never alone when you're with us.

The Lumia 830, Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 are the newest Windows Phones. Microsoft announced the new handsets earlier today in Berlin, Germany at IFA 2014. Normally we do these sort of "ICYMI" round-ups on Saturday.

Over the month of August, WPCentral and AdDuplex teamed up for a Lumia 1520 giveaway contest. The entry simply involved users Tweeting a screenshot of their Start screen with the WPCentral app pinned and the hashtag #AdDuplexWPC.

The contest was open worldwide, and one lucky person was walking away with a brand new Lumia 1520 for about 30 seconds of "work."

A few weeks back, we dived deeper into using Windows or Windows Phone for various connected hardware, including the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, Sphero 2.0 and Insteon home-automation kits. The articles not only explained what those things are, but how well the work within the growing Microsoft ecosystem.

As part of the Hidden Gems campaign, we were giving away multiple devices per article, with the only rule being to write a comment (and preferably more than just a word). Over the last two weeks, we picked the winners, notified them, and most are already in possession of their new today.
