samsung now

Samsung continues to support its Windows Phones with OEM app updates. Today we're looking at two apps from the Samsung Zone that have been recently updated. Both Now and RSS Times have been bumped to new versions (3.7.0.2 and 2.0.2) with the former removing top tweets and adding in a currency converter. We're not entirely sure what's new in its RSS reader.

Samsung is back at work updating their core apps, which is good news for the handful of you ATIV owners out there. 

Samsung’s Now app is actually not a half bad “all in one” spot for your local weather, news, stocks and even social information. It’s laid out nicely, has a double wide main tile and is surprisingly zippy (even though the load screen doesn’t match the ATIV’s resolution).

It was just last week where Samsung gave us a nice little overhaul to their "Now" app--their app which provides news, weather, Twitter trends, stocks and more.

The v2.x update brought Live Tiles, multiple tiles and Mango fast-app resuming but there was one nagging issue we kept hearing about--those Live Tiles never updated behind the scenes. It was only when you opened the app and refreshed, which obviously makes it sort of, pointless?

Version 2.2 just went live a little while ago. We've been running it for the last few hours and we could swear it's actually updating the weather and news tiles--but hey, we'll leave the mass testing to you folks. So download here in the Marketplace and let us know your experience in comments.

PS Yes, sorry folks, this is a Mango-only update. We know, it's cruel to tease.
