App Update Roundup: Line, Microsoft Translator, Endomondo and more

The weather's good here in the UK (caution: this is not a drill!) and we're here again with yet another batch of app updates on the Windows Phone platform. From Microsoft's own Translator app to Edomondo, we've got you covered should you happen to be out the loop. Head past the break for the full run through of recent updates released to the store.

Microsoft Translator

Microsoft Translator

This useful Translator app enables you to quickly and conveniently translate text and other content for free. After getting a design refresh in a previous version, the app has been updated to 2.9, which includes the following:

  • Camera translation for Czech, Greek, Hungarian, Polish and Turkish
  • Offline translation for Polish and Turkish
  • Online translation for Maltese and Welsh
  • Wide live tile

If you haven't used Translator yet, we strongly urge you to give it a try. It's a sweet little app, particularly useful for when abroad.

  • Workout history synchronization - you can now download workouts from server, you can also delete workouts
  • Load older entries in news feed

We recommend Endomondo for anyone who wishes to use their Windows Phone to monitor their fitness program.
