App Update Roundup: 2flicka, Cal and more receive updates

It has been a rather quiet week so far with the news, but we're looking at more app updates being pushed through the Windows Phone Store. Updating your arsenal of content will surely make up for the lack of hardware announcements and help you through the wait for Windows Phone 8.1.

Today, we're looking at both 2flicka and Cal, not to mention some other apps worth noting. Slip past the break for more details.


2flicka (1.6.1)

2flicka is a super-popular, unofficial Flickr client for Windows Phone. The app has been published on the store for some time, accumulating numerous positive reviews. Being bumped to version 1.6.1, this release addresses an issue with logging into the Flickr service.

Should you be unable to authorize 2flicka when logging in, the app will prompt you to utilize an alternative option. It's a handy fix should you be having trouble attempting to get access to your account when on the move.

​You can download 2flicka from the Windows Phone Store for free. We should note that the app isn't normally free, but will remain free for the next three weeks.

  • Fixed some Google and Outlook calendar sync issues
