Windows Phone Apps

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.

And it came a day over one full year since the last update to the Instagram app for Windows Phone.

While that's a pretty bad state of affairs, it's at least one we can do something about.

A few weeks ago, Chase seemed to have taken a less-extreme position than Bank of America over its discontinuation of their banking app, announced in January. The massive bank told users that they could continue using the app 'until further notice'.

The implication at the time (and this all it was) was that if you had the Chase banking app on your phone it would still work into the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, this is not the case. According to reader reports, the app is completely non-functional as of today.
