Wordament for Windows Phone

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Wordament is a tournament-style word game that was recently release on Xbox Live on the Windows Phone mobile platform. This free ad-supported word game is truly addicting. Players have two minutes to form words from a grid of letters using touch. Several hundred other people are playing against the same board at the same time, and a ranking appears a few seconds after the game is over. The whole process for a game takes about three minutes, and games are available consecutively at any hour of the day or night. It’s easy to get caught up in game after game as you try to better your previous ranking.

You can get Wordament for Windows Phone in the Windows Phone Marketplace. You can also play an online version on the official Wordament website.

Windows Phone from Microsoft

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

I’ve finally switched over the a smart phone, and my choice was the NOKIA Lumia 710 running Windows Phone. This mobile operating system was introduced last year and features the Metro interface that will be rolled out for PC with Windows 8 later this year. The home screen includes “Live Tiles” that are activated by touch. Each tile represents an application such as phone, texting or email. Web browsing is supported via Internet Explorer Mobile; videos can be streamed via YouTube.

Xbox Live on Windows Phone allows phone owners to download games as well as log into the online Xbox console Xbox games to view leaderboards. Phone owners can also create an Xbox 3D avatar.

One-touch searching is available via Bing, or phone owners can add a Google Live Tile for searching. A voice recognition system lets users initiate phone calls, text message and searches via speech. Windows Phone also provides a mobile version of Office that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote.
