Paper Plane! is a frustratingly addictive game for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android

26

If you like games that make you want to throw your phone out the window, we found another one for you. It reminds us a little bit of Flappy Bird, but we assure you, it's different. 'Paper Plane!' is a difficult game with the simple goal of avoiding incoming platforms as your plane flies downwards into the unknown. What's also cool about the game is that it was launched along with versions for iOS and Android.

We've installed 'Paper Plane!' on our green Lumia 1520. Go watch our gameplay video.

Sixty percent of Lumia users now have Lumia Cyan and 8.1 updates for Windows Phone

270

80% of India respondents are on Cyan, while only 47% of those in the US can say the same

Microsoft had a big day yesterday, finally releasing a new preview version of their 8.1.1 Windows Phone operating system. The update is only for those using the popular Preview for Developers early-access program. Besides improving performance and fixing bugs, the update also unblocked the awaiting Lumia Cyan firmware for many more users, though not all. The question we were curious about is exactly how many of you are now on Lumia Cyan.

After ten thousand votes casts, we now have a definitive, if not surprising, answer.

Bing Finance soon to change name to 'Money' for Windows Phone with MSN branding

142

Back in Berlin a few weeks ago, Microsoft made clear their current suite of Bing apps, including Weather, News, Finance, Travel and Health + Fitness, would be adopting MSN as the brand. Microsoft has already phased out Bing from the apps in previous updates back in April. The change is seen to separate Bing search from Microsoft's news and information offerings, which evidently fit better under a retooled MSN homepage.

This morning, we are getting reports from users that the Finance app is displaying an in-app message revealing that the name Bing Finance will be no more in the "coming days". (We have been able to reproduce the message ourselves and you can see the screenshot in the lead photo) Instead, the app will be titled MSN Money, although, like the current Bing apps, the app name itself is only going to be 'Money' on the phone (Paul Thurrott reported as much a few weeks ago on WinSupersite).

Head to head: iPhone 6 Plus vs Lumia 930 video performance

250

If you ask an Apple store employee for the difference between an iPhone 6 Plus and an iPhone 6, you can expect to hear that the 6 Plus has a bigger screen, but there's one more thing they'll most likely mention. The iPhone 6 Plus a better camera. That's because Apple has finally included Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) in an iPhone. Lumia cameras had this feature for a while now.

I was curious how Apple's video performance compares with the latest cameras found on the Lumia 930, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520. So, I went to the park and shot some videos. Watch the split screen comparison.

Gratitude Journal, an easy way to keep track of your daily thoughts

Gratitude Journal is a Windows Phone app that is designed to make it easy to record daily journal entries and in the traditional sense of the title, remind ourselves what we are grateful for. However, there is no rule you can use it as journal for just about anything.

Gratitude Journal takes advantage of gesture based controls and voice dictations to help you document your entries. Add OneDrive support along with location based weather information that is automatically added to your entries and I can see Gratitude Journal appealing to many Windows Phone users.
