updates

It hasn't been long since the ESPN Fantasy Football app lost it's Nokia exclusivity and became available for all Windows Phones and now we are already seeing an update push out for the fantasy football app.

The version 1.2.0.1 update adds the feature to allow ESPN Insiders to manage push notifications. While the change log is brief, very brief, we are also hearing that more team controls may have been added (don't hold us to that).

Track My Life is nifty Windows Phone app that records your travels to give you an idea where you spend your life. The app went from a rather broad tracking app to a more refined accounting of where you've been.

The Windows Phone 8 version of Track My Life was recently updated to version 4.0.3.5.  The update includes a handful of bug fixes and user interface improvements as well as the ability to add more information to your stops.  It allows you to not only see where you've been but add a description to that location, associate any photos taken with your Windows Phone at that location and categorize it as a pleasure or work stop.

Fhotoroom is a feature rich photography app for your Windows Phone. It is part photo editor, part camera app, and part photo sharing network. Which includes sharing to Fhotoroom's network, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and Instagram (via Instagraph).

The Windows Phone 8 version of Fhotoroom was recently updated to version 9.1.3 which adds a few tweaks to the user interface, but most notably allows Fhotoroom to handle the larger images files generated by DSLR cameras and the Nokia Lumia 1020.  Registered users (free) can now work with larger high resolution image files that range from 8MP to 25MP. We've even had success handling the 38MP high resolution image files from the Lumia 1020.

Nokia Windows Phone owners will have used Lumia Pusher in the past to see if the plethora of apps and system apps installed require updating. The app has unfortunately been pulled for some reason, but fear not as another developer has picked up the baton and launched NOKIA COLLECTION.

The new app shares similar functionality to Lumia Pusher in that you can hit multiple entries to be beamed to the store. It's a solid replacement.

When I reviewed Order & Chaos Online last week, I didn’t beat around the bush – I called it the single best Xbox Windows Phone game. No other game compares in scale, depth, or online multiplayer functionality. But that doesn’t mean it’s a perfect game, either. Like any big game it suffers from an assortment of bugs and glitches.

On Friday, Gameloft published what will hopefully be the first of many Order & Chaos Online updates. This particular update (which requires users to redownload the full 1012 MB game) doesn’t fix all of the known bugs, but at least it’s a start. Head past the break for details!

A few weeks back we showed you guys Grin for Windows Phone. It was (and still is) the best app for accessing Imgur (www.imgur.com) on Windows Phone, a site dedicated to free image hosting and sharing, often considered to power sites like Reddit. The latest update that came out today widens the gap between itself and any potential third-party Imgur apps. Let’s check it out.

ProShot is a feature rich camera app for our Windows Phone 8 devices. The app gives users greater control over their Windows Phone camera with settings ranging from shutter speed to white balance to focusing.

When we reviewed indie brick breaking game Inflexiball a couple of months ago, our resident Brazilian reader Guilherme quickly noticed that the game was not available in the Brazilian Windows Phone Store. We gave publisher Renatus Media a shout to find out why the game skipped over good ol’ Brazil. No, it wasn’t due to riots or Angry Birds attacks!

As it turns out, Inflexiball didn’t release in Brazil for the same reason every other game passes over the South American nation: Brazil’s strict and somewhat confusing software ratings requirements. It just so happens that we published a guide to releasing software in Brazil a few months back. Renatus put it to use and Inflexiball has just launched there at last.

Brazilian Inflexiball fans aren’t the only ones with occasion to celebrate today. Renatus has also just released a new update to the game that doubles it length! Details and impressions after the break.

Bell Mobility is rolling out the GDR2 update to their Samsung ATIV S Windows Phone. A leaked internal document from the Canadian wireless provider notes the update will improve battery life, add Data Sense, improve the camera and photo viewer, as well as improvements to the Maps application, SMS and Bluetooth performance.

If you are a Bell Mobility customer sporting the ATIV S, you should see the update notification by August 5th. Not sure if you can use the "check for updates" feature in the Settings and see it sooner but it's worth a try.

Wead is a Windows Phone 8 app that lets you insert local weather information on to your photos. The app acts more like a plug-in, accessible through the edit menu when you view individual photos in the Pictures Hub.

The new user interface calls for you to enter your location then retrieve the current weather conditions. From there you choose your temperature units, font style and color then set your text position with the slider controls.

Nokia Pro Cam is a camera app that is currently only available on the new Lumia 1020. It reminds me a lot of the Windows Phone photography app ProShot or Camera360 in that Pro Cam gives you more control over the camera's settings.

While the Lumia 1020 is just hitting store shelves today, the Pro Cam app is seeing its first consumer update. The update for version 1.6.0.2 brings more user control to the table with a bracketing setting.

Two popular photography apps for your Windows Phone 8 devices has been updated. ProShot and Camera360 both have received updates that mainly address fixes and tweaks to their user interfaces.

ProShot jumps to version 2.8 and adds a new focus dial with fixes for the burst mode and UI tweaks. The focus dial sits to the side of the viewfinder and is a nice addition and should be more convenient for those who prefer to manually focus on things.

Samsung has released a number of updates for its collection of apps on Windows Phone.

Unfortunately no change logs have been supplied so we're not entirely sure what's new. That said, it's good to see Samsung continuing to support customers.

Because indie games usually come from very small teams, their developers tend to take personal responsibility for their games’ shortcomings and actively work to improve them. Such is the case with Tainicom, the Greek developer responsible for The World of Dr. Pickaxe (a pinball game) on Windows 8 and Windows Phone.

Only two months after the Windows 8 and RT version of Dr. Pickaxe debuted, this week’s update fixes practically every complaint from our previous article. It adds a bunch of new features like Xbox 360 controller support as well. See all the improvements in our video after the break!
