App Update Roundup

Just before we release you all for the weekend, there have been a handful for updates released on the Windows Phone Store. Some of these apps are popular first-party, official apps, while others are minor bumps that we're sure you'd like to be made aware of. So get comfortable, grab a beverage and head past the break for all the details.

Facebook Messenger

The Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone has been updated alongside the clients for both iOS and Android, but Microsoft's platform isn't quite up to speed with the competition as the Windows Phone update appears to be only a minor one. There's no massive like button or instant Snapchat-like video recording for conversations.

We're sure these features will come in a future update, but it's weird the development team have failed to roll out the same update across the board. Yesterday's update brings Facebook Messenger up to version 5.0.3.0.

Epicurious

Epicurious is a popular service, which has an official app available for Windows Phone. With the app installed, folk are able to search through more than 30,000 professionally created recipes from Bon Appetit, Gourmet, SELF, as well as selected renowned chefs and cookbooks. It's also possible to save and share your own favorite recipes, and the app facilitates the creation of shopping lists, email recipes and even access to reviews and ratings from other Epicurious members.

Here's what is new in the rather large version 2.0 release:

  • Pin your favorite recipes to the home screen for easy access
  • Use your voice to control Epicurious and quickly find new recipes
  • Support for Windows Phone 8 live tiles, where a picture of the recipe of the day will be displayed

It's an app which is worth checking out if you require some assistance in the kitchen.

Camera360

For those who aren't familiar with Camera360, the super-popular photography app has a compass tool that makes it a breeze to switch between camera scenes on the fly. It's a hnady app for those who enjoy snapping those awesome photos on a Lumia Windows Phone and today's update fixes a few things while adding some minor improvements.

So, what's new in version 2.0.2?

  • Fix the bugs on 8.1
  • New tips for Double Exposure
  • Improvement for Splash Screen

We strongly urge you to check this highly rated app out.

I submitted a tip yesterday about Jetpack Joyride finally getting its first update in like a year. Still haven't seen anything about it.

What's new in it?

And yes, it's true, we don't report on every single app or game update out there, especially if there's no changelog. You got the update, you know about it ;)

Well, I frankly thought it would at least rate a mention since it's an Xbox game and people had been waiting forever on an update that's all.

I also wrote to 'Halfbrick' and got a reply in a day. I did this 3 days ago. The person who replied was himself a Windows phone user and he forwarded my request for updates to someone higher and ........

I seriously doubt most apps will ever be on par with the ones on iOS and android. It's not like the gap is getting shorter. In fact the gap for fb messenger grew even bigger this week.

Change the link for Whatsapp in the article, cuz it points to this page again :)

I don't know about you guys, but with the latest updates for the FB Messenger for WP (5.0.1.0 and now 5.0.3.0), The FB Messenger on my phone (ATIV S i8750) works way much better and faster even if i have 4-5 more apps working in the background. Notifications are working flawlessly.

All the updates coming out are GARBAGE!! If your phone is working good, DO NOT install updates. Messenger don't give any notifications since 5.0.0. Also, the recent 8.1 update is GARBAGE!! I don't bring my phone to work, when I come home still has 95% battery. Today I come home and phone was off, dead battery. Only received 2 calls and 1 text. GARBAGE these updates

FB messanger app was upgated today but still no voice calling option on lumia 920 wp 8.1. which is availabel on android and ios...windows phone are way back compared to other platforms
