App Update Roundup: SongArc and My 500px get new features, while MonsterUp Adventures goes free

Everyone loves that feeling when apps and games have updates available. We also love a great deal here and there. Today's app update roundup features a bit of both to round off our CES coverage (for Windows Phone Central anyway – the event continues). Head on past the break to see which apps and games are included in this roundup and what's new.


​We'll kick off today with SongArc, a highly rated and popular app out of the AppCademy program. We've covered the music game numerous times in the past, going through multiple updates and a sweet sale. Today, the game has been bumped to a latest release, packing some changes and improvements.

Here's everything that's new in

  • Sheet trial is now one minute long
  • "One more time" list increased to 50 songs
  • Server connection can now be cancelled
  • General performance and reliability improvements

You can grab SongArc from the Windows Phone Store for free.

MonsterUp Adventures

MonsterUp Adventures

MonsterUp Adventures is a sweet platformer and the series itself has been available on Windows Phone for what seems like an eternity (just check out our earlier review for an idea). Today, the game has been bumped to a new release, but we're not entirely sure what's included. That said, you can pick up the game for free, so really there's nothing to lose.

Download MonsterUp Adventures from the Windows Phone Store for free (we believe this to be a limited time offer - usually $1.99).

My 500px

My 500px 2.8.5

​We're always looking for new ways to enjoy photography on our Windows Phones. It has become quite the major feature of the platform since Nokia became heavily invested and involved. While we now have an official 500px app for Windows Phone, the unofficial client My 500px has just received an update.

  • New tap and hold to switch from grid view to full screen with like, fave, share, save actions.
  • New Landscape support
  • View page updated and tap on header is back.
  • Updated profile page.
  • Various bug fixes.

Grab the unofficial 500px app, My 500px for Windows Phone from the store for $0.99 (free version available).
