Halo: Spartan Assault to receive major update this week including new levels and Xbox 360 controller support

69

Good news for those who enjoy Halo: Spartan Assault, which was released for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 back in July, as the game is set to receive its first upgrade this week. That falls in line with earlier reports that August would see such an update.

The details for the Windows 8 version were revealed on the official Halo Waypoint site with an August 29th release availability. It’s not clear if the Windows Phone 8 version will be updated at the same time, though presumably they will be tied closely together. That version for Windows Phone 8 should also bring support for 512MB devices, as previously reported.

So what can users expect? There’s three big new features here: new missions, new achievements and Xbox 360 joystick support.

PSA: myTube hidden from the Store, but it’ll be back soon enough

31

We’ve had some isolated reports this morning that myTube, one of the more popular premium YouTube apps for Windows Phone, has gone missing in the Store.  With all the brouhaha between Microsoft and Google, it doesn’t take too long before people start wondering if a cease and desist is the cause of the app being pulled.

No worries, fellow YouTubers. The app was deliberately hidden due a bad XAP being accidently uploaded to the Store. The developer, Christopher Blackman, reached out to us to explain the situation.

USA Today for Windows Phone 8 receives much needed bug fix update

32

USA Today is arguably one of the best news apps on Windows Phone in terms of design and speed. It’s so minimal in its layout that it makes Microsoft blush and the fast loading  times of the app and related articles is nearly unprecedented.

There’s just one problem though: the app has had quite a few bugs since the last release, causing images and even articles to load incompletely. Frustrating users, many have complained in the app’s review on the Store that an update is required.
