I’m lovin’ it. Are you lovin’ it? We’re getting more and more official apps into the Windows Phone Store. Yesterday, the official McDonald’s UK app hit the Windows Phone Store.

Zoo Tycoon players drive Microsoft to donate $10,000 for Sumatran Tigers conservation work

32

Microsoft has donated $10,000 towards tiger conservation efforts thanks to Xbox Zoo Tycoon players. The challenge was originally put to players to pick the charity they wanted to work towards, and after picking the Sumatra tiger, the players released 1000 tigers into the wild in-game. Microsoft’s $10,000 donation to the Sumatran Tiger Survival Program will help reduce the number of tigers killed, displaced, or snared.

Good on Xbox players for reaching the game goal, and good on Microsoft for taking the initiative on this program. Any Zoo Tycoon players here take part in the event?

5 tips for maximizing your Storage space on Windows Phone

151

Some will argue that you can never have enough storage memory on your Windows Phones. It seems to take no time at all to fill up the eight, sixteen or even thirty-two gigabytes of storage on our Windows Phones.

For those who struggle with keeping enough storage space free on your Windows Phone, we’ve got a few suggestions that might help you manage your memory better.
