Evernote gets major update, Ghostscape appears (Windows Phone Wednesday)

This week we see a major update to Evernote, two new Xbox LIVE games, and a Deal of the Week appearing in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

This past week I have been using the HTC Radar 4G as my main T-Mobile device and even though it is really targeted at the new Windows Phone user I am finding it more than meets my needs. I love the design and form factor and only wish it had more memory for all of the apps and games I install.


One major update that arrived today for Windows Phone is Evernote version 2.1 that adds a number of features and improvements, including:
  • Pin nearly anything to the Home screen: You can now pin notes, notebooks, tags, searches, and templates.
  • Templates for notes: You can now create templates for those type of notes you create on a regular basis.
  • Improved text editing: More languages have been added.
  • Background sync
  • Search integration: That's right, Evernote is now integrated into Windows Phone search!
  • Social features: Share notes to Facebook, Twitter, and Windows Live

As you can see this is a MAJOR update to Evernote and makes me very happy. Evernote is free, but I like it so much I pay for premium too.

New Xbox LIVE games

There are two new Xbox LIVE games in the Marketplace this week and one is available for FREE. Ghostscape is a first person adventure game where you wander a haunted house and solve puzzles and collect things. It is available for $2.99.

The other new game that I am downloading to the HTC Radar 4G is Shuffle Party and it is available for free. This game is the shuffleboard game you may have played in a local bar and comes with a couple different modes of play. Your own avatar is part of the game experience as well.

Deal of the Week

The DoTW is geoDefense, available for $1.99. This is a tower defense game with bright colors and lots of action.
