Windows Phone Apps

A few weeks ago, Cycloramic jumped from iOS to Windows Phone even before Android. The famous panoramic app is now a free app for Windows Phone users, who do not have a wide variety of pano apps. [Update: The app was free but it is now $1.99]

Unfortunately, being new to the Windows Phone game, Cycloramic had a few bugs for some users on specific devices. Luckily, the devs have been hard at work trying to tidy things up. Today's update looks to do just that.

Microsoft has pushed out an update today for their SmartGlass beta app on Windows Phone. The update coincides with the recent rollout of OneGuide and Digital TV Tuner for Australia.

Additionally, the name of the publisher has shifted from Microsoft Corporation to Microsoft Studios. The transition of the publisher likely has to do with SmartGlass being folded into the new Xbox app for Windows 10. During our time last week at Microsoft's event, we were told that SmartGlass indeed was going away as the Xbox universal app for Windows 10 makes SmartGlass functions redundant.

Back in December, Urbanspoon removed their app from the Windows Phone app store. Part of a growing and disturbing trend, it had appeared that the famous restaurant finder app had seen its last days on Windows Phone. Urbanspoon was a rather nicely designed app, but the last update from the company was back in 2012, so Windows Phone support had already withered.

For better or worse, Urbanspoon was acquired by Zomato just a few weeks ago for a reported $50 million. Interestingly, Zomato not only has a Windows Phone app but a highly-rated one as well (and it looks like they will have a Windows 8.1 app on the way).

National Public Radio today has released their new NPR One app for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1. The app is universal, appearing to use the same code across both platforms. It is also very minimalist, modern, and well done.

NPR One is not your standard public radio app. Instead, it is a new effort by NPR to create a more "personalised" experience based on your preferences. You get a combination of live radio from your local radio station, in addition to suggesting programs. You can also search things you are interested in, and the service will begin to cater to your tastes.

HTC today finally got around to updated their HTC Camera app for their One M8 for Windows. Since its release, HTC has updated numerous core apps (Sense TV, Dot View app) for their flagship Windows Phone, although Camera has gone without one.

Today, 2.0 has come to the Store, which is a rather large jump. The banner feature here is the new Pan 360 option, which replaces the previous Panorama mode that is built into the camera app.
