Windows Phone Apps

Earlier this week I wrote about how it'd been a full year since Instagram updated its official Windows Phone app and what we, the Windows Phone users could do about it if we were unhappy. Our advice was to use something like 6Tag, an excellent third-party solution but some of the comments on the post raised an interesting question. A question we're going to put to you, the Windows Central audience.

Do we really need official apps as long as there are good quality, third-party solutions available in the store?

Todoist is a hugely popular, cross-platform task managing service that hasn't traditionally had a great presence on Windows. That looks set to change with the company's acquisition of TaskCrunch, a third-party client that syncs with Todoist, and the developer behind it.

Jan Kratochvil will become Todoist's first full-time developer for Windows.

Although official sports apps tend to share the same status as banking apps on Windows Phone – that is, ignored – ESPN is not one of them. This morning version 1.0 of the ESPN App, formerly known as the ESPN Hub, went live in the Store.

The new ESPN App looks to have been completely re-written and ready for Windows Phone 8.1. We last wrote about ESPN Hub back in December, 2013 so this makeover has been a long time in the making.

One of the most feature-filled camera apps on Windows Phone, Camera360 Sight, picked up an update today that introduces a neat trick if you're one to take a lot of selfies. The app now supports Cortana voice commands, which means that you can use the phrase "Cortana, take a selfie" from within the app to take a photo from the front-facing shooter (or the rear camera) automatically.

File this one under first-world problems but if you are like us and own multiple Fitbit trackers (collect them all!) you no longer have to decide which to wear. In a backend update, Fitbit has thrown the switch to let users synchronize multiple Fitbit Trackers to their account through the mobile app.

Previously, if you owned the more rugged and full-featured Surge and the leaner Charge HR, you would have to pair only one to your account. The other device would essentially be kicked out from tracking until you repaired it.

Perfect Note is a simple, feature rich Windows Phone app for recording and managing notes or tasks. The app has a clean and easy to use interface but doesn't skimp on features that include OneDrive integration, Live Tile support and three security options to keep your notes private.

The Windows Phone app normally runs $1.99 but for the next twenty-four hours, through the myAppFree campaign, you can get Perfect Note free.
