Battleloot Adventure goes free through myAppFree promotion!

22

If you are looking for a fun game without paying a dime, look no further than Battleloot Adventure. The modern quest game with turn-based action scenes is dropping from 99 cents to $0 for the next 36-hours. The promotion is in conjunction with the myAppFree service, which makes deals with developers to temporarily drop the price of an app or game in an effort to gain visibility in the Store.

Battleloot Adventure "blends comedy, turn-based combat and role-playing for a whimsical adventure like no other!" but what I like about it is the endearing artwork, which has a hand drawn like charm.

Pocket client Pouch 3.0 is completely rewritten for Windows Phone 8.1 users

Here is how to find out if Lumia Cyan is available for your phone

370

The good news is Microsoft (through the old Nokia mobile) announced today the global availability of the Lumia Cyan update and Windows Phone 8.1. We have been waiting for such a proclamation as it means that officially the 'update season' is starting. Note how we call it a season, because, like previous updates, this is a staggered rollout based on your device, region and carrier (if applicable).

Indeed, heading to the official Lumia Software Update page, which lists the update by region, device and carrier you can see how everything is "under testing ." Translation? No one is likely to get an update today. Instead, you are going to have to wait as the carriers give the green light to the update. How long it is going to take is not known, though it could be days to weeks.
