With the Microsoft Band 2 fitness wearable now on sale in the US, it stands to reason that many third-party apps that were made to work with the original Microsoft Band will be updated to work with its sequel. One of them is the popular fanband app and today it has indeed been updated to add full compatibility with the new Microsoft Band 2.
In case you are not familiar with the app, fanband allows Microsoft Band users to customize its theme. There are over 1,000 themes to choose from including sports teams, video games, tv shows, and more. For today's update, developer Liquid Daffodil has added support for the larger screen and higher resolution on the Microsoft Band 2. The user interface on the app even changes to reflect if it is being used on the original Band or the new Band 2.
It's definitely one of our favorite apps for the Band family, and well worth the $1.99 price tag.
