141

Instagram pushes out a rapid fix for their Windows Phone beta app

56

Although Instagram updated their beta app for Windows Phone earlier in the week, it appears there were some stability issues. At least, that’s what we’re inferring from today’s minor 0.0.1 update, which is now live in the Store.

So what’s new in Instagram beta? Unfortunately no new features, but instead it “contains crash fixes”. While we haven’t experience any issues, some users in Reviews have cited some force-closing of the app, which sounds exactly like the problem addressed with this rapid update.

The amount of marketing that’s been done for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is ridiculous. Some future marketing classes will definitely be looking back at the amount of work that Paramount Studios has done to promote it. For example, Will Ferrell has been in character as Ron Burgundy on CNN and ESPN in the weeks leading up to the movies premiere. Now we’ve got an official Anchorman 2 game for Windows Phone.
