Free version of Plex now available for Nokia Lumias

Plex is a popular app for Home Theater PC users that was became available last year for Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices.  The paid app connected your Windows Phone to the Plex Media Server where you can manage and stream your personal media to your phone.

A new version of the Plex app has landed in the Windows Phone Store that is a free app but only available for Windows Phone 8 Nokia Lumia devices.  In just reading the Store descriptions, the paid and free version appear to be similar.  However, comments in the WPCentral Forums indicate the free version resolves a few issues the paid version has and you have more options with regards to video quality.

Stop the presses as original Instagram app Instance, version 2.0, finally arrives

105

If you go way back to the start of Instagram apps on Windows Phone, Instance (previously known as Itsdagram) was one of the first apps to link straight to the service for direct photo uploads. It was a huge win at the time for Windows Phone as it gave the first, native like experience for the service. Later, 6tag came onto the scene and Instance faded.

Although beta 2.0 was previewed on this site way back in August, that update never came to fruition. Call it life catching up and other things, but that project was put on the back burner. Today though, that app has finally been polished and prepped for release.

Here’s what is new.

Check out what's new in the massive Readit 1.3 update available for Windows Phone

14

Readit is a sweet unofficial Reddit app for Windows Phone hardware, which we've covered in the past and even gave it our editor's choice for Reddit clients. While the 1.2 update released late November was a fairly sizeable update, the developer has published version 1.3 and has continued the trend of releasing rather long lists of changes.

Just like before, we've had to snatch the change log from Reddit since it's not posted within the app or Store (possibly due to length issues). Slide on past the break to check out what's new.

Fhotolens in the works, brings a fish-eye view to Windows Phone 8

11

Fhotolens is a new Windows Phone 8 photography app that is currently in the early stages of development.  It is the creation of the developers who bring us Fhotoroom and is a camera app that has an interactive, fish-eye lens effect.  Fhotolens’ results go beyond the bubble effects filter by using very accurate coding that reflects curvature to the lens, giving things a more realistic fish-eye effect.

We have gotten a sneak peak at an early beta version of Fhotolens and while there are some bugs still to be ironed out and a few additional features to be added to the mix, it makes a nice first impression.

Anodia, a brick-breaker styled Windows Phone 8 game

Anodia is a Windows Phone 8 game that has the feel of a brick breaker styled game but loses the traditional feel with the variety of targets you are called upon to destroy.  You do not have a series of bricks to destroy but instead you have to take out light bulbs, hanging lamps, groups of bouncy balls, and more.

The game has over one hundred gaming levels, over twenty different power-ups, and if you are a fan of the brick-breaker styled games Anodia is worth a try.
