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.
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.
- Translator (18MB - free)
Endomondo is a sweet app for tracking your fitness stats when you go on a long run or bike ride. Not only does it work as an activity tracker, but has personal training aspects as well. Using the built-in GPS in your Windows Phone it's able to track nearly any outdoor sport.

- Redesigned UI, with all new icons and styles
- Bing Maps replaced with WP8 Maps
- WP8 Text to Speech integration for audio coach (for now supports only English)

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