Google has added the canals of the Italian city to Google Maps. You can travel more than 380 miles around Venice on foot, gondola or vaporetto thanks to Google’s Trekker Camera. Thanks to this new addition, you can explore some of the most famous landmarks the city has to offer, without leaving the comfort of your own home!
Twitter’s microvideo service Vine has landed on the mobile operating system from Microsoft, offering all the same options as on the iPhone and Android versions. The only thing Windows Phone is missing now is Instagram! Download Vine for Windows Phone.
World of Warplanes is now available for download on PC. It’s a free-to-play game in which you fly warplanes while encountering other players in the sky. If the visual style seems a bit familiar, it’s because World of Warplanes belongs to the same series as the popular World of Tanks. Download World of Warplanes.

In My Talking Tom, you have to look after your cat and raise him from kitten to adult, making sure he is well fed, gets enough sleep, and is entertained!
