Swarm for Windows Phone

Just because it is a holiday in the US it does not mean the world of software has to stop. Today, numerous updates are going out for a few apps, one of which is Mint, which has not been updated in months.

Let's take a look.


Financial tracker service Mint has received its first bug-fixing update in months this afternoon. Version is now live in the Store, and although no new features are listed, the usual 'bug fixes' is noted in the changelog. Some users have complained about the connection issues, so perhaps this makes a few adjustments in the app to address those problems.

Mint maintains a positive 4.5 (out of 5) rating on the Store, so Windows Phone users must be pleased with the combo app and service.

Popular Foursquare check-in service Swarm is continuing its evolution from 'eck' to 'hmm, this is pretty good' with today's update. Version continues to fix some bugs and improve the Windows Phone social check-in service, including a detailed changelog:

  • Added a setting to control the distance units (Auto/Imperial/Metric)
  • Get straight to the sticker leaderboards from
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements especially in poor network coverage conditions
  • Keyboard was covering text entry when editing your profile (Fixed)
  • Crashes when checking in (Fixed)

We cannot complain too much about this app, which has received numerous updates over the last few months.

Lumia Device Hub

For those with Lumia Windows Phone, you may notice that the Device Hub app found under Settings has been updated today. Version of Device Hub is available, and the changelog is the same one from back in September, so don't let the MD-12 support note fool you (the MD-12 speaker came out months ago).

Presumably the Device Hub has some bug fixes, likely related to those new Lumias hitting store shelves worldwide, including the Lumia 830 on AT&T. Regardless, you can force an update by grabbing the link below.
