If you do not know what Portal is, then you are dead to me! DEAD! But since I know everyone knows of Portal that won’t be an issue. What you may not have known is that Valve created a comic book that chronicles the gap between the end of Portal 1 and the beginning of Portal 2, and your character (Chell) ends up back inside the facility.

This comic is called Lab Rat and you can view it in super great details at http://www.thinkwithportals.com/comic/

But what about when you are travelling this festive season and want to read it quickly, or show your family so they can be caught up before you take them through Portal 2 on Christmas day? Well, for my seventh WP7 app (yes, I have build 7 Windows Phone apps this year!) let me introduce Lab Rat.

In addition to offering the comic in your pocket you can save any page, with or without text, to your phone for use as a login screen or any such thing! AWESOME!

In no way should you think this is an alternative to going online though, the detail of this comic should be seen at the BEST resolution possible – but this makes a good companion experience.
