Update 2: Flipboard has informed us that they are working with Microsoft for a 512 MB-optimized version of the app.

Update: Users can now download the Flipboard app. It is still not available for 512 MB phones although it does have some 'flip-like' animations.

The long awaited Flipboard online news reading app for Windows Phone that's been in development for over a year and had a false start a few days ago, may finally and officially be available for download in the Windows Phone Store sometime today.

Originally, the app became available but it was later pulled from the Store due to it being a 'placeholder' version and not the official one.

Pocket Magnifier is one of those neat apps that you may not have known about for your Lumia Windows Phone. Developed in collaboration with Royal National Institute of Blind people (RNIB), Pocket Magnifier lets you use the Lumia rear camera to zoom in for text and clarity.

This morning, version 1.2 is live in the Store and with it comes the Microsoft name in front instead of Nokia's, an app trend that started a few months ago. The UI has also switched from olive green to the more familiar royal blue and the app is now Windows Phone 8.1 only.

Friends who follow football more than me said I have to check out the English Premier League (premierleague.com). I'm in luck because NBC here in the United States has acquired rights to broadcast all the games. Their app, NBC Sports Live Extra, is also available on Windows Phone so you can stream the games live or watch replays and highlights.
