We have another app roundup for your Windows Phones. Today we'll be looking at Pixel Gun 3D, iFruit from Rockstar and even Waze. To save you some time checking for updates or just in case you haven't yet received the notifications, head past the break to see what's new in these latest releases.
Pixel Gun 3D 18.104.22.168
This is a cool first-person shooter (FPS) available for Windows Phone. Inspired by Minecraft, we recently gave Pixel Gun 3D the thumbs up and urged you guys to check it out. We're now back today with a rather large update. Version 22.214.171.124 includes numerous new additions to the gameplay, further expanding on what was already available.
Let's take a quick look at what's new:
- New mode: ''DEADLY GAMES'!'
- New weapon system with cells
- New guns & upgrades
- New maps
- Hats & Capes in the shop
You can download Pixel Gun 3D from the Windows Phone Store for $0.99. Unfortunately, there's no trial available and you need at least 1 GB of RAM. Let us know how you're getting on with the new features.
Waze is an extremely popular navigation and traffic app that relies on social interaction for real-time updates. What's more is Waze is now part of Google. That said, the Windows Phone client is receiving an update shortly (not live yet), which will "improve battery performance", perfect for those who rely on the service when on the move.
This is the first update to Waze since it came out in November, so it's much needed due to the many complaints about overheating. Hopefully, this fixes it. Look for the update later today.
Grab Waze from the Windows Phone Store and be on the look out for the imminent update.
Rockstar Games released the iFruit companion app to the Windows Phone Store. This is a great little tool which works wonders with Grand Theft Auto 5, opening up more functionality for gamers. Unfortunately, while we don't have the change log for the latest release (version 126.96.36.199), we thought it would be wise to fire up a public service announcement, confirming that the latest update has broken the app in the form of crashes.
You can grab iFruit from the Windows Phone Store for free. Let us know if you're also experiencing issues with the app.
SysApp Pusher 188.8.131.52
This little tool ends up on a few of our app roundups, but the simple reason for this is because it's such an important app in our arsenal. We believe consumers should utilise SysApp Pusher until Microsoft introduces auto-update for Windows Phone apps. Today, we're looking at version 184.108.40.206, which adds support for the following:
- Nokia Touch
- Bings apps
Not a massive update, but a notable one nonetheless. If you haven't already got the app, download SysApp Pusher from the Windows Phone Store for free. We highly recommend it.
Odds and Ends
There have not only been highlighted updates this week, but also minor releases that have affected the following apps:
