Casts – a beautiful beta app in the podcast segment
There is a new podcast app coming in the Windows Phone 8.1, but that is still a month away. We are super fans of Podcast Lounge for its features and usability. And there is another player here, Casts. Casts is a podcast app and its currently free and its a beta.
So if you’re ready to test it, go grab it. After all its free, there is nothing stopping you from giving it a try. And remember its in beta still, so go easy if you find any bugs. And do report it to the dev 🙂

A reddit user just discovered while trying the new SDK that Windows Phone 8.1 has now search feature for text message. It’s a very basic feature yet it was dumped in Windows Phone 7 and 8. Search feature in text messages is quite handy while searching for a particular text, let it be related to your registration Id from some service or important texts from your friends/family.
Some users in the comments are also claiming that you will be able to search for text messages using Cortana voice commands, like “Show texts from my wife”.
There are so many little things that keep coming out of Windows Phone 8.1. Let’s see what else Microsoft has packed inside Windows Phone 8.1 for your Lumia. 🙂
Let me get one thing straight, UnfollowSpy is for you if you wish to get insights in a lite and easy way and also wish to have Twitter and Facebook statistics . Yeah i know that there is no Facebook support now, but its coming, its planned. Just use that and exit this post now. But if you wish to have both the apps running for the other services UnfollowSpy has to offer, and also wish to have even more detailed insight on your Instagram account than what Unfollowspy has to offer, read on. And by no means i favour one over the other, both are awesome! it just comes to what you’re looking for.
First thins first, you have to login with an Instagram account, its simple. And then comes the sad part, first time load. Wait quite a long while for the app to get the stats from Instagram and to analyse and to work on it and present it to you. Depending on the followers, following and post and likes the wait time will vary. Thankfully you can tell it not to update on startup and can reduce various stuffs under the settings to load it faster, given that you’re okay with stats not so deep. If you see the settings page yourself, you’ll get what i am saying. Everything is simple and easy.
You first see the dashboard, from where you can move around
The app gives a very detailed analysis without annoying you like some other apps, you do get one notification that suggests to follow the app’s Instagram account, which you can opt to neglect. The app is fully functional, has a great UI and UX, it just works as you expect. Does what it says in a sweet manner, if you are a heavy Instagram user and care for stats, go for it. There are several packages which you can unlock the features of the app, and you can also get the total pack which includes all the feature and also gets rid of the advts. Its a very little price to pay for an app this good, its also a good way to support the dev.

Flappy Bird, which is soaring on top on App Market on iOS and Google Play on Android, is coming to Windows Phone. Game developer @dongatory has confirmed on Twitter that it should be coming quite soon on Windows Phone.
Goal of the game is to take duck to the end of the level without touch any obstacle. It is very simple yet tough game.
@dongatory has estimated 10 days for it to come to Windows Phone.
@Kieranb8561 I could estimate 10 days from now. It has to be approved by Microsoft.
