The hit iOS game, Temple Run will be making its way to Android this year, says creator, Imangi Studios. The game developers took to their Facebook page  posting a simple status saying, “On a (Samsung) Galaxy not-so-far away. Temple Run Android coming February 2012. We’re so excited to announce this and appreciate all of our fans’ support across both platforms!” The post has accumulated over 1,000 comments and over 6,000 likes showing that Android users are more then ready for Temple Run to make the jump. Temple Run will be debuting in the Android market in February. Now all we need is for Instagram to reveal a set date to join the Android Market and we will be set for the year.

Bil Simser has been working on an unofficial  Instagram program for Windows Phone, titled Metrogram. If you do not know, Instagram is a popular photo app exclusively for the iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad, etc) that allows you to take pictures and add filters to them. You can then share them with your Instagram followers as well as upload them to Twitter or Facebook. It is unknown if Instagram will accept the development of the Windows Phone app as Bil Simser’s Metrogram program is an unofficial version of the original Instagram application.

Motorola previewed the Droid RAZR MAXX during CES with the highlight being the battery that can last for up to 21 hours. Well Samsung is looking to take that key highlight and put it to the test by having a live streaming next month. The live show will be a 24 hour affair with Samsung displaying the battery power of the Droid RAZR MAXX. We are crossing our fingers that Criss Angel or David Blaine will jump out of a box at the end of the show, but that probably won’t happen. Stay tuned for further news as the date of the show draws near.

      Hi Ria,

      Sorry Temple Run is not currently available for WP7, and I don’t know of any plans to develop this title for the WP7 platform. I like the Lumia 900 WP7 phone, I was using an HD7 for awhile as my daily driver last year. There are currently too many titles that are unavailable for the platform. Windows Phone 8 looks promising but unfortunately none of the currently available handsets can be upgraded to the support it according to recent reports.

      Until WP8 is released, I’m going to take a “wait & see” what develops stand with the platform. I can’t currently recommend it.
