Find all 6 of these great new titles from the AppCampus program conveniently gathered in the AppCampus Showcase Collection in the Windows Phone Store. And let us know in the comments which is your new favorite!
WP8.1 preview is already available for quite some time.
There have already been 2 updates too (why has the WiFi not been addressed ?).
Quite a lot of developers and enthusiasts are using/testing WP8.1 already for several months.
Goke: how could MS fix the Wi-fi in WP8.1 when its not even out yet..?
About the blog post: it says that "all 6 of these great new titles from the AppCampus program conveniently gathered in the AppCampus Showcase Collection"..but I cannot see Brickvoid in it?
May I suggest that you repair the poor WiFi reception/connection in WP8.1 first please !
It was good/excellent in WP8.0, and it completely degraded in WP8.1.
Lots and lots of people suffer from bad WiFi reception/connection, they write about it in all possible forums and you do nothing about it (not in WP8.1 update 1, not in update 2).
