Review of Windows 8 Mobile and Nokia Lumia 920 by an iPhone user

Nokia Lumia 920
It is strange for me to review Windows 8 Phone OS when our app is not even present in Windows store. Majikal currently is iPhone only app and work for Android version is in progress. We have no definitive dates for Windows version of the app but still I was tempted enough to give Windows OS a try.

New version of Majikal for iPhone is now available in app store

You said and we listened, thanks for the invaluable feedback. We have incorporated some of your feedback in this release and are still working on others.

In this release (v1.0.1):
– Support for iPhone 5
– Important bugfixes
– Better user experience: now you can add personal comments while sharing, following and check-in into an event.
– Better integration with Facebook
– Performance improvements

You will also note that we have changed the app name from “Majikal” to “Majikal – explore & follow local events“.

Download the app from here and don’t forget to write a review and send us feedback.
