ThisisXbox.com Windows Phone 8 News App – Out Now

thisisxbox on windows phone

In our efforts to branch out and support the amazing amount of users who visit thisisxbox.com via our mobile site (m.thisisxbox.com) we also decided to create an App for Windows Phone 8 – and this is now available from the Windows Phone Marketplace.

We call this out ‘little effort’ because Version 1.0 was designed as a learning process, to get the headlines out there quicker than loading up and searching for us on your mobile Internet Explorer, and it enabled us to get to know the certification processes for App development with Microsoft. Version 1 can be downloaded right now by searching for THISISXBOX NEWS on your Windows Phone 8, or by visiting the link below.


If the UK is not your locale, then you will be encouraged to click a button to get the app in your own location. The app relies on data from our feeds and content might be unavailable during server down time or maintenance. Please note that a cleaner, crisper, smoother, better metro version 2.0 is already in planning stages for a Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 launch in the new year as an update and we do not receive any identifiable information from this app.

Obviously if you are already reading this on your ThisisXbox News app – thank you for downloading it!!

#Drawtopia For Windows Phone Out Now – Taking Marketplace By Storm


Developers Super Smith Brothers, has released their second Window Phone game – Drawtopia which is available now from the marketplace for both Windows Phone 7.X and Windows Phone 8 devices at the cost of absolutely nothing! This FREE game is currently taking the Windows Marketplace by storm having now been listed in the Top 5 of the ‘New & Rising’ list in the US, and Top 10 and still rising in the United Kingdom.

So, what’s all the fuss about?

Unlike traditional puzzle games, Drawtopia features a physics based model based on user touch input. You are presented with a challenge that you must draw on screen with your fingers, but it is not as easy nor as simple as it may seem or appear. It’s highly addictive and described as a journey through colour and space as one ball undertakes an epic quest across some lines to reach an exit… or something like that anyway 🙂

Due to demand the developers have confirmed that DLC will be winging its way to the game in the near future.

You absolutely MUST download Drawtopia for yourself from the link below. It’s a fun game that once you start you’ll find it hard to put down!
