ICYMI: September 27, 2014

Seven days might not seem like much, but it can be an eternity in the tech news cycle. Every week we're going to compile the biggest stories into one post, so you never fall behind – In Case You Missed It (ICYMI).

As Microsoft's vision of one Windows comes closer to being a reality, our vision of a website covering all of this overlapping that technology is also nearing completion. One request we have had from a small percentage of users is a filtering system to weed out news not relative to your interests.

Truth is, the overwhelming majority of you do like reading everything from Xbox to Surface to Windows news, reviews and articles. Nevertheless, in our attempt to make everyone happy, we are pleased to be rolling out our front-page news filter today, both for the main website as well as the mobile version.

After a recent fix for our Windows Phone app, our developer extraordinaire Jay Bennett has turned his attention back to our Windows 8.1 Modern app. Today, a new update is now available and not only do we have the full changelog, we are proud to note it is more than 'bug fixes and general improvements.'

Without a doubt, one of the most requested features is finally here: the ability to set the default accent color of the app by the user. Therefore, instead of our banner magenta color, much like our Windows Phone app, you can now choose which accent color works for you. Another big feature is Mobile Nations Passport support for logins, but there is even more...

It's Friday, so we should have some fun. What's more fun than talking about your favorite Windows Phone game with Xbox? Earlier this week Microsoft released Age of Empires: Castle Siege for Windows Phone (and Windows 8.1). It's an awesome new game that plays similar to mobile games Clash of Clans and Cloud Raiders. Unlike those two games, you can directly control your troops during attacks AND you get Xbox Live integration.

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.

We had some great coverage yesterday, and you know more or less know all there is about the two devices. So we have to ask, are you planning on buying one?

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. But I figured today had a ton of information and interesting posts you wouldn't want to miss, so we're going to highlight today's coverage of Microsoft's #moreLumia event.

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.
