Windows Phone Apps to help weather the storms Windows Phone Apps to help weather the storms

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Emergency Apps
We had a request for a
roundup
of emergency oriented apps and with Hurricane Season getting underway, it was good timing.
From weather forecast apps to emergency first aid titles, these Windows Phone apps can be a solid resource to help you weather the storms.And it doesn't have to be a weather related emergency. If could be a car accident, camping mishap, or your run of the mill household catastrophe.
We've posted
emergency app collections
in the past and they can really come in handy when
the bottom falls

Unofficial Snapchat client, Swapchat now available for Windows Phone Unofficial Snapchat client, Swapchat now available for Windows Phone

We've
previously looked at Swapchat
, an unofficial Snapchat client for Windows Phone, which has been in beta testing for some time now. Much like
Instagram
, until an official offering is presently available, developers will look to capitalise on the absence with an app of their own. While we're heard from multiple sources that an official Snapchat app is on its way, it's good to see third-party alternatives for consumers to enjoy.

Outlook RT to arrive with Windows 8.1; small Windows 8 tablets to ship with free Office Outlook RT to arrive with Windows 8.1; small Windows 8 tablets to ship with free Office

Amazing Weather HD updated, new HD images and you can use your own photos now Amazing Weather HD updated, new HD images and you can use your own photos now

Amazing Weather HD
is simply an amazing Windows Phone weather app. Along with a nice level of weather coverage (forecasts, radar, satellite, etc.), the app also has support that pulls stunning HD weather images to your Windows Phone lockscreen.
Amazing Weather HD
has been updated to version 4.2. We suspect a little fine tuning was done under the hood (the app seems to have a bit more zip to it), the most notable change with the update is with the lockscreen support.
Not only are there new HD images to rotate to your lockscreen but now you can use your own images as lockscreen wallpapers with the app's weather overlays.

Facebook Beta for Windows Phone 8 updated Facebook Beta for Windows Phone 8 updated

The Facebook app for Windows Phone hasn’t been the most exciting app since it first wobbled onto the platform. It became slightly better after each new update, but was still a dog to run. A month ago Microsoft announced a new
beta version of Facebook
they’ve been working on that brings the app closer to its iOS and Android counterparts. That beta version has been well received in the community and gets a small update today.
What do you get when you update the Facebook Beta app to version 5.0.1.3? You tell us. We can’t see any major changes in the app and there isn’t any change log to go off of. Let us know what you find below. If we had to guess, we'd say bug fixes are what this update is all about.

Feeling grey? Order up a Lumia 920 genuine housing replacement for a weekend project Feeling grey? Order up a Lumia 920 genuine housing replacement for a weekend project

Although we’re kind of in love with yellow for our Lumia 920, there’s one even more elusive color out there that’s kind of hard to find depending on your geo-location: Grey.
Yup, Nokia does make an
all matte grey Lumia 920
and while it’s difficult to find, you can now order the original housing for that device on eBay from a UK seller. The price of the housing (which may not include the SIM tray, so contact the seller first!) is going for £39.95 (~$60 USD), which isn’t cheap but for an accessory that will literally make you feel like you have a brand new phone? That’s not
too
bad.
Of course you can also find replacement chassis for the 920 in yellow, red and black online too but the grey is what has our interest piqued…we’re mighty tempted to try the DIY replacement method ourselves.

The

It's now come to light that T-Mobile will also be picking up the model with 32GB of storage, which will surely please many to know that it may not be that much of an exclusivity.
WPArea.de has
received a screenshot of an internal terminal at Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile) showing the new Nokia device, but that's not the surprising part of the story as the product information details a 32GB version of the Lumia 925. This could well be an error in the system, but it's always better to keep hopes up and look forward to such an option. We'll keep our eyes open for more

Nokia Lumia 928 coming to Verizon next month? Nokia Lumia 928 coming to Verizon next month?

According to two unnamed sources, Bloomberg is reporting that Verizon will start selling the Nokia
Lumia 928
next month. This comes shortly after
earlier whispers
that Big Red's version of the
Lumia 920
would be officially announced on April 25, which seem to fall in line with Bloomberg's findings. Perhaps that ratchets our 5 on the Rum-o-meter up to a 6 or maybe even a 7.
It goes without saying that getting a flagship phone on Verizon will be a huge boost for Nokia. And with a 4.5" Super AMOLED screen, 8.7MP OIS Pureview camera, alleged aluminum body and all the perks of the Nokia Lumia 920, the Lumia 928 should be pretty alluring to Verizon customers.
Unfortunately, we will have to wait at least until sometime next month to see what effect a Verizon hero phone will have on Nokia.
