We're half way through the week and while there are still numerous stories to break before the week ends, not to mention our own Windows 8 app and more, we've got an app update roundup for you all. Today we'll be covering Asphalt 8: Airborne from Gameloft, Nokia's Storyteller and AppQuiz. Head on past the break to see what's new.
Asphalt 8: Airborne 184.108.40.206
Asphalt is a popular series of racing titles available cross-platform, including both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. The latest instalment is one of the most intense and action-packed racing games you can download on Windows Phone and today we're looking at an minor update.
We're not entirely sure what's included in this latest release, but since it's a minor bump to 220.127.116.11, we'll assume there are bug fixes and performance improvements. It's well worth downloading if you haven't already got the game installed.
You can download Asphalt 8: Airborne from the Windows Phone Store for free.
Nokia Storyteller Beta 18.104.22.168
This awesome app from Nokia sorts through all your photos and automatically arranges them, using HERE services for data and categorisation. There's nothing worse than a messy album of galleries and Storyteller helps make this an issue of the past.
The app has been bumped to 22.214.171.124 and since there's no official announcement or changelog, we'll again have to go with minor fixes and improvements. Be sure to let us know in the comments should you notice anything new since updating.
Own a Lumia Windows Phone? Grab the Storyteller app from the Nokia Collection (Nokia Lumia Amber update required).
Love your Windows Phone and all the apps installed that you use on a daily basis? If so, why not put your Windows Phone app knowledge to the test with AppQuiz? This sweet little title requires players to use letters available on-screen to work out the title of the disguised app icon (even Windows Phone Central is included). You can even find new apps you may not have been aware existed, making it a rather unique concept.
Version 1.2 adds the following:
- 100 new GREAT levels!
- Fixed bug in level 26
- Fixed bug in level 40
Fetch AppQuiz from the Windows Phone Store for free.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us on these updates!
