Everyone loves that feeling when apps and games have updates available. We also love a great deal here and there. Today's app update roundup features a bit of both to round off our CES coverage (for Windows Phone Central anyway – the event continues). Head on past the break to see which apps and games are included in this roundup and what's new.
We'll kick off today with SongArc, a highly rated and popular app out of the AppCademy program. We've covered the music game numerous times in the past, going through multiple updates and a sweet sale. Today, the game has been bumped to a latest release, packing some changes and improvements.
Here's everything that's new in 220.127.116.119:
- Sheet trial is now one minute long
- "One more time" list increased to 50 songs
- Server connection can now be cancelled
- General performance and reliability improvements
You can grab SongArc from the Windows Phone Store for free.
MonsterUp Adventures 18.104.22.168
MonsterUp Adventures is a sweet platformer and the series itself has been available on Windows Phone for what seems like an eternity (just check out our earlier review for an idea). Today, the game has been bumped to a new release, but we're not entirely sure what's included. That said, you can pick up the game for free, so really there's nothing to lose.
Download MonsterUp Adventures from the Windows Phone Store for free (we believe this to be a limited time offer - usually $1.99).
