Microsoft’s Socl app has just been updated on Windows Phone. Version 220.127.116.11 fixes bugs and adds support for low memory devices. This means Windows Phone 8 devices with 512MB RAM such as the Nokia Lumia 520 and the HTC 8S can now also check out Microsoft’s growing social network.
One major issue we have experienced in the initial version is that some posts we have created did not show up in our timeline. It appears that bug has been fixed in this update.
Overall, we’re still not happy with this app. The video parties section, in particular, is still unusable. Clicking a video forwards you to a page that says:
The Adobe Flash Player is required for video playback. Get the latest Flash Player.
Socl is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. Have a look and let us know your experience with it in the comments.
Thanks for the tip, Josh H.!
