App update roundup: MoWeather gets new tiles, Readit upvotes bug fixes and Minion Rush goes faster

Updates, updates, updates! Get your updates here! Kicking off the new week, we have three apps that have been bumped to new versions on the Windows Phone Store. MoWeather is joined by Readit and Minion Rush. Head on past the break to learn what's new in each of the covered apps.

MoWeather HD


​So this is a rather large update. The developer of MoWeather has released version of the app, including numerous new feature and additions. If you're not familiar with the app itself, MoWeather is a super attractive weather app for Windows Phone, offering gorgeous animations for accurate weather readings. While there are multiple weather apps available, we recommend you check this one out.

Here's what's new in version

  • New lockscreen and live tile design.
  • Update weather data of tile and lockscreen timely.
  • Support 3 kinds of tile and 6 ways to flip.
  • Fix locating bug. Improve access to accurate local weather.
  • Support for 21 countries and regions.

We're digging the new tile and lockscreen designs, not to mention the added customisation just in case you wish to have data displayed your own unique way. You can download MoWeather from the store for free using this link or the QR code below.



​We understand there's nothing more pleasing on a hot Summer's day (or a rather chilly Winter one) than sitting down with a beverage and scroll through hundreds of published reddit stories, be it your favourite cats, memes or simple WTF moments. For Windows Phone, Readit is a super popular, unofficial Reddit client, which has been updated to address a bug introduced in the previous release.

"Touch target improvement introduced a new margin for the subreddit view and for some reason the correct subreddit view file did not get in the submitted package."

A minor update, but worth noting. Download Readit from the Windows Phone Store for $1.99 (free trial available).

Minion Rush

Despicable Me: Minion Rush

Despicable Me: Minion Rush is a humorous endless runner, which we featured in our top endless runner games roundup. The game features the cute, funny characters we've come to know and love from the hit movie and recently Gameloft released an update to the title on the Windows Phone Store.

While it's not known what version brought to the table, we're assuming this is another minor fix. Our tipster, Himanshu Chowdhary, believes there have been improvements implemented to further optimise the game across a variety of Windows Phones (we're talking about the Lumia 920 and Lumia 520). It's also noted there aren't as many frame rate drop issues with this latest version.

While there are reportedly still some problems, let us know if you've noticed any improvement in the update. You can grab Minion Rush for free from the Windows Phone Store.

Head on over to our forum for more updates and to share your own findings. Thanks to everyone who tipped us on these updates!
