Match'em Poker is a Nokia showcase example application that demonstrates an efficient way to implement a sprite-based 2D game using custom animations with Open GL ES 2.0.

This project studies porting of an OpenGL ES game from iOS to the Qt platform using Qt GameEnabler with minimal efforts, and similar porting to Windows Phone/XNA as well.

The Match'em Poker game is a 'match 3' type game where you can switch the cards on a grid to form different poker hands in any direction. Fill the score meter to advance to the next level. The score meter drops continuously with time. If it reaches zero, the game is over.

This example is hosted in a Nokia Developer Projects, http://projects.developer.nokia.com/matchempoker, where you can find implementation and porting notes, discover recent revisions, and contribute to the project.

Launched two years ago by Spain's El Mundo, Orbyt offers digital news content to consumers on a variety of platforms, including a new app for Nokia Lumia Windows Phones. They decided to create a mobile application because their readers are changing their habits when it comes to how they get news and information. Now they can access news, as well as video and photo galleries, in a way that is impossible to get from a traditional newspaper.

According to Enrique Rivas, Product Manager of Unidad Editorial, individuals can download the newspaper that they want to read in one minute, and then enjoy the content wherever they are, even without an internet connection.

Rivas says there are two things that make the new app unique. One is the power of the brands that individuals can find inside the app; and the other is the features of Windows Phone that enhance the app, including the Metro panorama experience. "It is totally different from the features that other operating systems have at the moment," says Rivas. "It enhances the app, and creates a very good user experience for our readers."

"The partnership between Nokia and Microsoft is definitely a good idea," says Rivas. "Two leaders in the sector known for being innovative and working together they have only one possibility: success."

Founded in 1976, El País is the leading newspaper in Spain, with 400,000 copies printed during the week, and two million unique users online everyday, notes Borja Echevarría, Deputy Editor at El País.

"From the development experience, we realized there is a more homogeneous user experience by leveraging the functionality that Windows Phone [enables] within the development kit," says Jesús Moreno, Digital Content Director for El País. There are multiple sections of the newspaper available within the app, and the user can drag and drop the order that those sections will be displayed. The Metro panorama feature in the app allows for an easy to browse experience between both news stories and different sections. Users can pin different sections of the paper to the home screen as a Live Tile, and there is full-screen video content. Consumers can download stories to read offline, too.

"We are very happy with the final application," says Moreno. "It is a very clean, efficient, and practical-to-use application in order to read news every day."
