That WhatsApp messaging service has been on a roll lately with updates, support and bringing the features people want. On the side, they also have their private beta, where they bring online new features (though most of the time it’s just non-disclosed bug fixes). It’s been quiet on the feature front lately, but this morning, we have a report that version 2.11.366 beta has been pushed out to testers with a new tool.

Under settings, users in the beta testing group will find a ‘media autodownload’ selector, pushing that number up to six, along with text size, lock screen, screen rotation, blocked contacts and backup. Media Autodownload is an extension of the app’s ability to automatically save videos and photos to the camera library. Up until this point, media was saved automatically, regardless of a user’s connection.

The official Huffington Post (www.huffingtonpost.com) app for Windows Phone 8 brings all your favourite articles, photos, videos and blogs from the popular resource and displays everything in a simple, intuitive user interface.

From politics to fashion, business and technology to entertainment, there's content covering the stories you wish to learn more about. Though this is the initial release of the app, The Huffington Post falls short on functionality and basic features we'd expect to see (and is highlighted on the store listing).

Cinemagraph is one of many innovative and unique apps that Nokia has brought to their Lumia line of Windows Phones. The app captures a rapid series of photos and then strings them together in a loop, for a photo with a live, movement feature. Users then can upload their creations to Nokia’s servers, which generates a URL link for sharing with friends and family.

Version 4.0 has now gone live in the Store, and we’re talking more than just bug fixes and optimizations (the last update was in October). Nokia has brought probably one of the top requested features for what is essentially a GIF generating app: GIF export.

There are a handful of excellent fitness apps in the Windows Phone Store. One of my personal favorites for tracking my workouts is Runtastic. They’re a small mobile fitness company that have seen tremendous growth over the past year. I like to think hiring a full-time dev for Windows Phone helped with some of that growth.

Anyways, over the past year they’ve had two apps in the Windows Phone Store: Runtastic and Runtastic Pro. Both excellent apps that more or less were similar in features. However, on iOS and Android they have a host of other fitness apps. Those apps are now available for Windows Phone. Let’s check out their apps that will help you keep track of your push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups and squats.
