Official Sphero app finally available on Windows Phone

Sphero app tile

Sphero is a little toy robotic ball. The Sphero SDK for Windows Phone and Windows 8 was announced nearly a year ago at Build 2013. Ever since then we’ve been waiting for the official app to drop on Windows Phone. Today is that day you can finally head into the Windows Phone Store and find the official Sphero app.

Version 1.1.0.4 of Sphero is sitting there, waiting for you to download it. Of course, you’ll need the Sphero robotic ball (gosphero.com) to get the most use out of it. The newest version of the toy, Sphero 2.0, is available at online stores and retails for $99.99 for a limited time (normally $129.99.)

With the official app, you can control your Sphero and play all the various Sphero games. It’s available for both Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1 users.

Anyone out there with a Sphero taking this app for a spin? Get the official Sphero app for free today.

Thanks for the tip Vladimir!

Using a ball as your running companion is kinda sad. And I don't think you can get chicks with a toy ball.

I was in the process of replying to you with a not so nice comment,then I noticed my typo back there that you were referring to.. lol Thanks for pointing that out I guess?

I think they're are still quite a few people who wouldn't make the switch to WP solely because it doesn't have that game. Not me mind you, but alot of folks.

Never heard of this thing before. Checked a few videos about it, and it looks like an expensive useless crap tbh :D

Love the toy. My kids are loving it. Cats as well. An official app has this RPG idea in mind. Play imaginary games, unlock more features, gain speed, tricks. Great app. Used sphero drive app before. Also really really good app. But official is official. Now all I need is xcom enemy unknown, bard's tale, kotor, hearthstone,hbogo, maxgo and ShowTime, and I'm all set.

Alright WP and Win devs...let's make some games for this! Surprised no one made a Pokemon knock-off yet.

Hmm this would be great for little kids, though its a little on expensive side. Another gadget on my ever growing list of items to get... Darn utility companies seem to be paying nothing but bills left, right and centre.

Why the F isn't awesome stuff like this available in Sweden? :@ We're a really well developed country, but tech arrives almost a year after release in US/UK/JP etc. Annoying!!!

If it's so official, why haven't they bothered to update their website, including the list of officially supported devices/OSes? Fail.

Got one today. Just because of the official WP app. Everything else already left the building. So that means official WP apps bring more sales :)

Awesome! My son has a Sphero... can't wait to mess with him by taking control while his phone is in plain sight! :) 

Help...after seeing this I went and orderd my very own Sphero...I got it Tuesday, but unfortunely it has not been running right. I have a Nokie 1520 and only the driving is working.  Anyone else have these issues?

 

After updating Sphero app on Lumia 720 (Windows 8) , it is not appearing in the games tile or else where in the phone.  If I go to store and search sphero app it shows that the app in collection, but it is not appearing any where. Any one guide me how to fix this problem.

Thanks

 

 

I thought the problem was with WP81 Developer Preview only...

Can't uninstall... reinstall doesn't help. Is Orbotix looking into this problem?
