windows phone apps magazine
Calling itself a ‘content discovery’ app in the Windows Phone Store, Nokia Xpress seems to sell itself a little short. At the core it’s designed to help save your data plan by reducing the size of webpages before sending them to you but there is much more here.
They have also built in the ability to create a slick looking personalised “magazine” from your favourite websites which are then made available to read offline. All this and more and has been rolled into one powerful app, its now left beta and is available to download today. We take a closer look at the final version.
The Windows Phone UK team have released two editions of the Apps Magazine so far that is focused on helping new adopters get started with their new Windows Phones. Edition #3 is readily available should you find yourself in the dark and haven't quite yet got round to checking it out for the rich content available.
The edition follows #2, which was released back in November. As well as running through a number of apps (160 to be exact) available on the Marketplace, the magazine does feature highlights of Windows Phone itself, from Live Tiles to Bing and local services. Whether you're an experienced fan or have just jumped from a competitor platform, it's well worth a read.
Be sure to check out the Windows Phone Apps Magazine on Facebook.
Back in May, the Windows Phone UK Blog launched an "Apps Magazine" which was a digital periodical for getting info on some of the latest offerings from the Marketplace. It was a done extremely well and many had positive things to say of the project.
Now, Edition #2 is out and it has a ton of new info that's great for those new to the platform. For instance, some of the early pages discuss the new features in Mango, customizing your phone and general usage tips. Later chapters deal with specific app selections, like movies, travelers, folk music fans and more. It's certainly a fun read and very nicely laid out, so we recommend a quick peruse as maybe you'll discover something for yourself. And if not for you, you can share it on Facebook for others that are perhaps unfamiliar or not convinced yet of Windows Phone.
