Tag team: Metrogram and Instagraph are pairing up to bring one Instagram client to rule them all

96

There are a few criticisms levied against Instagraph, the third party “work around” for Instagram on Windows Phones, including price, upload limits and feature set. That last one is a bit interesting because as of right now, users can only upload photos to Instagram but they would need another app to view their friends’ feed, comment, share photos, etc.

That’s coming to an end though as Metrogram and Instagraph are air-high-fiving to bring a single use system. We’ve actually been privy to the info for awhile (shocked?) but it wasn’t our place to announce the news. But now the developer behind Metrogram, a highly stylized Instagram viewer that we recently covered, has posted a pic teasing the pseudo-merger (see above).

Access FTP links easily on Windows Phone 8 with FTP Enabler

10

FTP Enabler is a neat little app that adds the ability to Windows Phone for the loading of ftp:// links. As it currently stands, if one opens an FTP URL from an email, loads it up in Ineternet Explorer or from another app, an error message is displayed. The user is asked to look for an app on the store to carry out this command. The only issue is there aren't any apps listed, until now.

Reserve now: OpenTable’s official app goes to Windows Phone 8 in latest update

43

Hooray for more Windows Phone 8 apps! That’s our feeling every time we report on an official app getting bumped to take advantage of the latest features in our OS. Today’s app is OpenTable (www.opentable.com) the must-have service for those in big cities who want to easily reserve a table at their favorite (but busy) restaurant.

The previous Windows Phone 7.x version wasn’t too bad, but it was a bit slow and lacked any ‘wow’ factors on board. Version 2.0 though is now live in the Store for Windows Phone 8 devices and it’s certainly much better, in our opinion.
