Nightly – Windows To Go, Marketplace success, and Monster Island
The Nightly, your daily source for link to cool stories for Windows Phone and Windows 8.
Windows To Go still only for Enterprise customers - A cool feature that was shown off at the Build Conference last September was the ability to boot and run Windows 8 from a USB stick or external hard drive. This would only users to maintain all their settings, files, programs, etc regardless of what hardware was being used. The feature at the time was only mentioned for Enterprise customers and today confirmed as a feature for the Enterprise edition of Windows 8. Check out what other features differentiate Enterprise from Pro here.
Taptitude, a success story on the Marketplace – Compared to Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play, the Marketplace is smaller in comparison with fewer big name apps from companies and developers. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t be successful in the Marketplace with Windows Phone. Taptitude, by FourBros Studios, has been on the Marketplace for a little over a year now and have accumulated over $100,000 from ads. Check out their blog post where they break down their methods and offer some solid data. Oh, and the past few days they’ve been pulling in over $1000 a day. Congrats to the team and good luck to other devs.
New Xbox Live game in Marketplace – Today another gem has dropped into the Xbox Live section of the Marketplace. The game is called Monster Island and comes from the masterminds behind iStunt 2, Fragger, and Gravity Guy. Actually, the game mechanics of Monster Island are nearly identical to Fragger, but with a few tweaks to differentiate the two. Download it here from the Marketplace or use the Microsoft Tag below.
