Quiz time. What makes me and the rest of the crew at Windows Phone Central happy? Hint. It probably makes you ecstatic too. The answer? Any single time we get a new app on the platform or an app gets an update. It’s a situation that you can’t help but channel your inner Sheen and shout ‘winning’. Today we win by getting E*TRADE to update and support a few features of Windows Phone 8.
Time to update the app if you’re a customer of financial service company E-Trade. When you do so, you now get a few features that you’ve been patiently waiting to get the past few months. We couldn’t find an official change log, but here are some things you’ll notice at first blush after updating:
- Native support for higher resolution displays – like on the HTC 8X or Lumia 920.
- Double wide tile
- Better performance
- Lock screen support
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like you have fast resume or voice controls. But if you look past those two omissions you’ll find a fairly nice update if you like to keep track and manage your finances while on the road. The lock screen support is nice. It provides you with stock updates from places like the DOW, NASDAQ, etc.
Check it out and let us know what you think. Anything missing in the app for you E-Traders out there?
