Author: Clarity Consulting
System Requirement: For Windows Phone 7
IGN is a web portal dedicated to information, news, and reviews about video games. This web portal is now available on your Windows Phone 7 in the form of IGN app. This is a recent addition and previously this app was available for iPhone. This app has been developed by Kevin Marshall of Clarity Consulting. IGN app lets you access all the latest and popular game stories, reviews, game downloads, cheat codes etc along with IGN’s Daily Fix, which contains daily videos on hot topics.
IGN app for Windows Phone 7 has red colored background, which complements the actual look of the website making it look familiar to the users. The app has five sliding screens, which include all the important content and sections of the original website like Platforms, Top Stories, Daily Fix, Reviews etc. The best part is that you get to browse all what you want to without having to worry about the pop-ups and other online commercials that crop up out of nowhere.
To watch the daily videos, you just need to tilt your phone in the landscape mode. You can conveniently turn off the display if some urgent work came up. Not just that, you can, with equal ease, start watching the video from the very point you left it, once your work was done; the app automatically resumes the buffering.
The IGN app lets you read the headlines and updates easily. The text is displayed without graphics, so it gets loaded quickly and easily. Sometimes, thumbnails of related game screenshots accompany the text for a better visual appeal. Another feature is that the developer has omitted the 3G/Wi-Fi traffic from this app making it work faster even with lower bandwidth Internet connection.
