After a longer time the unofficial State-of-the-art Formula 1 related app PitlaneOne got a bigger update. The count of new features is limited, but finally I could bring in a thing which was at the top of the to-do list already for a longer time – an own database for the Championship Standings and event […]
As the Formula One Management and the Windows (Phone) versions of F1uptodate have not been the best friends in the last year, because “F1″ is a registered trademark (WHY is that possible?), the only way to continue with the app this year was to rename it.

This week Microsoft and Opera announced that the Nokia Store will be replaced by the Opera Mobile Store until the first half of 2015. This addresses the platforms Symbian, S40, S60, Asha and Nokia X.

As I still have not got any reply or reaction, I decided to republish the app “on my […]
As some of you might have noticed you cannot download F1uptodate from the Windows Phone Store at the moment. This is not my fault, but I received a “Content Infringement Complaint” from the company behind Formula 1. They are not happy with the fact that I am using “F1″ in the app name and logo. […]
For several days my Formula 1 app F1uptodate is now also available for smartphones with the Windows Phone operating system. The app was developed natively with C# and XAML, and merges visually with the Windows Phone user interface. This includes the main menu of the app, which was inspired from the Windows Phone Start screen […]
…or not Who moves from Symbian or Android to Windows Phone and consciously knows and uses the strengths of multi-tasking, will be sorely missing them on the Microsoft platform – because they are simply not there, with intent (as a reason for this the battery life is mentioned often, but compared to the 808 real […]
One large copyright infringement After logging in with our Microsoft account we have done all the preparations in order to look at the Windows Phone Store and download apps. I mean I’ve read that there are now more than 200,000 apps available and the largest “known” from Germany ‘s point of view are represented, DB […]
