Is your Lumia 930 Windows Phone a hot potato?

520

As the Lumia 930 becomes more widely available, we are picking up on reports of the Windows Phone getting warm. Windows Phone Central Forums member Snapples has started a discussion on this and it appears Snapples is not alone.

We've also heard some grumblings about the Lumia 930 having a purple hue but the overheating seems to be taking center stage. The warmth (described as very, very hot) was first noticed by Snapples during the initial set-up and installation of apps. Thinking this was just a passing fad, the heat returned while browsing the web or sending a text.

Contest – Win a copy of Jack Lumber or Snuggle Truck!

187

Every now and then a new game developer joins the Windows Phone ecosystem and you just wonder how we ever lived without them. One such company is Owlchemy Labs, a small studio who recently published two stellar games: Snuggle Truck, a 2D driving/stunt game, and Jack Lumber, the best lumberjack game on the market.

Last week, our Jack Lumber review reminded some readers of Monty Python's Flying Circus. So "Hey," we thought. "Why not arrange a little Monty Python-themed contest and give away some Owlchemy prizes?" That's what we're doing this weekend. You guys can enter to win the Steam versions of Jack Lumber ($7.49 value) and Snuggle Truck ($4.99 value). Play a bit on your PC , Windows 8 device, or Mac and get an idea of what the Windows Phone games are like. And it's really easy to enter!

Windows Phone Collections: For The Kids

Windows Phone Central Game Roundup: For The Kids Collection

One of the nice features of the Windows Phone Store is the Collections. The Store Collections are a wide range of popular apps and games, sorted by subject matter. If you aren't sure what you need, these collections can help get you pointed in the right direction.

The Collections include golfing apps, running apps, indie game spotlight, bicycling apps, apps for Saturday Night, Disney games and more. For this week's roundup we're going to turn our sights towards our younger Windows Phone users and highlight a few titles from the For The Kids Collection.

This Collection has a series of apps and games designed to entertain kids while subtly teaching them a thing or two. All these titles would be nice additions to your Windows Phone Kid's Corner and well suited for those times you need a little help in keeping your child occupied (e.g. waiting for the table at the restaurant, in the doctor's waiting room, on road trips, etc.). Heck, some of these games will appeal to the older crowd as well.

Adorables, a collection of sports games full of cute and cuddliness

27

If you detest cute and cuddle characters, Adorables is not a Windows Phone game you should be trying. Adorables is a collection of sporting games that features tiny little creatures come across as part Minion and part gummy bear. Or at least that's how they come across to me.

These one-eyed creatures are customizable and currently delivers four games to your Windows Phones. Add features such as three single player modes, turn based multi-player modes, online multi-player modes and MOGA controller support and Adorables has the potential of being a decent Windows Phone game.

Available for low-memory devices, your biggest hurdle with Adorables may be simply getting used to the cuteness factor.
