500px

Another day and another blow to Microsoft's struggling platform. This afternoon, popular photography site 500px sent out an email to members announcing that they were discontinuing support for their Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 apps at the end of April (Chrome OS was also listed).

Indeed, the 500px Windows 8.1 app is already unavailable, although the Windows Phone one – last updated in January – is still listed.

of our favorite sites for photography is 500px. It’s a great online photography with a beautiful web layout, apps on all major platforms, and re-launched market for buying fine art. It’s awesome. In the Microsoft world they have apps on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone. Today the Windows Phone version picked up a nice little update. Let’s check it out.

Everyone loves that feeling when apps and games have updates available. We also love a great deal here and there. Today's app update roundup features a bit of both to round off our CES coverage (for Windows Phone Central anyway – the event continues). Head on past the break to see which apps and games are included in this roundup and what's new.

500px officially comes to Windows Phone

It was nearly a year ago that we started getting some third party apps in the Windows Phone Store for 500px. The popular photography website didn’t have any plans to make official apps for either Windows Phone or Windows 8, so we were stuck with unofficial offerings. They weren’t bad though, in fact a few of those independent apps were quite good. They just didn’t carry that badge of authenticity that an official app can.

Today that changes. 500px is now available for Windows Phone 8 users in the Windows Phone Store.

500px is probably one of my favorite photography websites. Flickr was once the darling of photography networks, but its development stalled a bit during the first few years following acquisition by Yahoo. It’s getting better, but I’ve since been all about 500px when it comes to getting my photography fix. Which is why I’m really happy to see the Windows 8 version of 500px. Let’s check out what’s new.

Get your 500px fix with Shoopix for Windows Phone

Odds are you’ve come across 500px if you’re a photographer or just an admirer of good photography. It’s a fast growing online community, portfolio platform, and storefront for many hobbyist and semi-professional photographers. With a gorgeous site compared to Flickr, it quickly established itself as one of the best places to showcase your work. On Windows Phone we don’t have an official app yet, but we do have two solid third party apps. How does newcomer Shoopix stack up against 480px and My 500px? Let’s check it out.

One of my favorite photography websites is 500px, it's got some really impressive work by all types of photographers and is a great place to get inspiration. Another perk is that compared to other photo sites, the layout is clean and fast, so it's easy to navigate with the photos taking center stage. We showed you My 500px for Windows Phone 8 a few days ago and want to present you with another option. An oldie, but goodie - 480px has been updated to take advantage of Windows Phone 8.

If you're a 500px photo website fan, you'll like the new Windows Phone 8 app My 500px. Not only will My 500px let you rotate photos from 500px as your lockscreen but you can also log into your 500px account to view your photos, favorites and "like" images.

You can set the lockscreen by 500px feature, category and sort by ratings, vote counts and other criteria. From the three dot menu you can set the lockscreen rotation cycle from 1 hour to 24 hours.

The Windows Phone 8 lockscreen app Photostream just got a little better.

Photostream already gives you the ability to not only rotate your lockscreen wallpapers from images in your Pictures Hub but PhotoStream will also tapped into Flickr to generate lockscreen wallpapers. The app was recently updated to version 1.2 and allows you to tap into photos on 500px as well.
