As many of you know, Nokia is directly responsible for some of the highly coveted apps that have migrated to the Windows Phone Store. This week they’re back at it, working hard to bring some positive attention to the Store again. As Peter reported here on winphan.net, Nokia is offering WP Store credit and Gameloft titles to some Lumia owners with the “World of Entertainment.” Promotion.

I thought this would be a great time to utilize the WP Store as part of our WinPhan Scavenger Hunt. Not only is it fun to share what you’re using with others, but it helps developers reach new demographics and find better success when we all participate. So Week 8’s target theme is…




Week 8 Target Theme:

Share A Pic Of Your Favorite Windows Phone App


WP8 Users: Open Store, type in favorite app, screenshot the ‘Overview’ page, and share that pic with us.

WP7 Users: Open browser from another device(pc, tablet, etc.), go to www.windowsphone.com and type your favorite app in the search bar. Select so the “Overview’ is seen, take a pic of it, and send it in.

Non-WP Users: Follow the same instructions as WP7 Users above. Take a pic of the app you’d most love to use if you had a Windows Phone and send it in.


*Submission period for Round 3 ends Sunday, May 11th, 2014 at 5pm PST.


Here are some apps I use to share apps across the social networks. Give them a try by making your submission one of these, it makes sharing fun! Simply tap the icon to download.
