Those of you who enjoy updating apps on your Windows Phones, prepare yourselves as we've got yet another roundup for you. Nokia MixRadio joins MetroMail and SysApp Pusher as highlights, but we have a number of other updates worth noting, so head past the break to see what's new in this wave of releases.
Nokia MixRadio 18.104.22.1680
MixRadio from Nokia is the company's rebranded music streaming service (previously Nokia Music). Consumers are able to enjoy free access to curated mixes, offering a more personalised experience with scope for music discovery. Should you enjoy the service and wish to have access to more features, a premium subscription option sets you back $3.99 a month. Version 22.214.171.1240 introduces the following:
- Repeat of single tracks
- Improved Player view when no artist image available
- Lyrics view remains open between tracks
- Enhanced downloading of offline mixes
- Improved messaging in error conditions
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
SysApp Pusher 3.1
Speaking of app roundups, it's fitting to include SysApp Pusher as this is one tool you should have installed on your Windows Phone(s). The app enables you to quickly check (and be notified of) updates for installed and supported system apps from vendors, as well as opening up the ability to add apps from the store you wish to track. It's a simple way to remain on top of updates for your favourite apps without relying on notifications from the Windows Phone Store.
Version 3.1 brings the following to the table:
- Added Microsoft as vendor
- Better support for Full HD screens
- Remove icons of all applications from package, and instead will now use icons from store
You can grab SysApp Pusher from the Windows Phone Store for free ($0.99 to remove advertisements).
Gmail uses who own a Windows Phone are recommended to check out MetroMail, a must-have app for all your Google email needs. The app has been bumped to version 1.3.1, which includes a fix for attempting to configure a multi-line signature. As well as this bug fix, there are other miscellaneous improvements applied. We last covered MetroMail when version 1.3 hit the store with numerous new features, but we're pleased to see the developer addressing issues.
Download MetroMail from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99.
Odds and ends
As well as the major updates above, here are some other apps and system software from vendors updated through the store:
- Cal - 1.2.1
- App Social - 126.96.36.1995
- Trial Xtreme 3 - 188.8.131.52
- Nokia Care - 184.108.40.206
