The Converge app returns to Windows Phone as a high-quality tech newsreader

68

Converge is a popular newsreader that used to go by the name of the Verge app. We will skip wading into the circumstances that lead to the name change, but even as 'Converge,' the developer behind the app, Anand Prakash, faced some obstacles in keeping his creation on the Store. Now, Converge is back with version 4.0 and with it a new mission as a general tech newsreader, but with the familiar – and beautiful – UI and smooth transitions.

Converge 4.0 still features articles from the Verge, but additionally it now also supports feeds from WinBeta and Windows Phone Central (with our blessing and consent). The decision as to which newsfeeds to use is left to the user during the initial setup.

EmojiHunt, a match three Windows Phone game full of smiles

EmojiHunt is a match-three styled game for Windows Phone that, as you would guess, calls on you to find matches of three or more of the same styled emoji.

The game has forty-eight levels of play, each requiring you to hunt down particular sets of emoji before time runs out. While the game premise sounds easy, you might be surprised how hard it is to identify matching emoji.

Available for 512MB devices, EmojiHunt is a colorful, challenging match-three styled game that isn't a bad time waster.

Foursquare finally launches Swarm on Windows Phone 8.1 [Updated]

189

Swarm, a new check-in service from Foursquare, is coming out today for Windows Phone. Teased a few weeks ago on the Foursquare blog, the app lets you see where you friends are and then to check into those places. Swarm is not exactly replacing Foursquare, which is focusing on 'discovery' going forward, and it too should have a Windows Phone refresh in the near future according to the Foursquare Twitter account.

The big focus for Swarm over its predecessor is social, as features like traditional mayorships and the points system get dropped in exchange for seeing where your friends are for the evening. Now you can be mayor of a location, but only amongst your friends and not the rest of the world. Users will also still get Insights aka knowing how many times they have checked into a location. Finally, stickers. Yes, if you thought junior highschool was over, you would be wrong as Stickers play a significant role in Swarm.
