Kinect Star Wars app arrives on Nokia Lumia devices

<![CDATA[<img src=”data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg%20xmlns=’’%20viewBox=’0%200%20450%20270’%3E%3C/svg%3E” alt=”” title=”starwars-tweet” width=”450″ height=”270″ class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-67881″ data-lazy-src=”” />If you happen to own a Nokia Lumia 610, Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 800 or Nokia Lumia 900, then this bit of news is definitely right up your alley. After all, there is no point in getting a smartphone if you are not going to go all social with it, which is just what this particular app has done. For folks who remain glued to their Facebook and Twitter accounts all day long, then the Kinect Star Wars app would add a flavorful twist to your social networking experience on the go. After all, it will be able to let you keep up to date with the latest news feeds as well as tweets from friends regardless of whether they are on Facebook or Twitter, in Star Wars style.
For instance, you will be able to check out tweets in the classic method where each Star Wars movie opens, with the title sequence scrolling upwards and disappearing as it gets smaller and smaller. The opening crawl, as it is called, will fade into the distance ala Star Wars, and when you turn your smartphone on its side, the Star Wars theme will continue to play, before you catch yourself humming along without realizing it.
Just what kind of other features can you expect from the Kinect Star Wars app? How about sound bites from R2-D2 and C-3PO to keep you company? Two of the world’s most famous droids come together in this effort, and this app which weighs in at 11MB will also make it a snap for you to post a tweet or a status update, as there is a post icon which is located at the bottom of the screen. You will first need to fill up what you want to tell the whole world, with the choice to say just where you are, while adding your location and photo for added effect. Once you are satisfied, there will be a couple of buttons located at the top of the screen which represent Facebook and Twitter, where you can choose to select or deselect either one or both at will, depending on where you want your message to end up.
Download the Kinect Star Wars app from the Windows Phone Marketplace today, and just make sure your smartphone is running on Windows Phone 7.5 at least before you get started.
