Pin World Clocks To Your Homescreen With Tile World Clock

One of the big advantages of Windows Phone 7 is its homescreen, which uses Live Tiles to display information to the user, similar to widgets on Android but in a more uniform way. So, what this Tile World Clock by forum member Thunder_ – whom you may remember as the developer of Office File Uploader – does is just that: you create a world clock, set the time zone, display name, choose one of eight different clock types, and pin the tile to your homescreen.

It’s about as easy as it can get, and looks beautifully Metro. The only drawback is that the clock can be inaccurate – when background agents are disabled, for example in battery saving mode, the clock will even completely stop updating. Usually, though, the delay should be less than five seconds, which should be acceptable for most.

Continue to the forum thread to download the XAP, and be sure to leave some feedback!

However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
