ARMED!, Farm Frenzy 2, Adobe Reader and USA Today all updated in the Windows Phone Store

There have been a number of updates being pushed through the Windows Phone Store today, including new versions for ARMED!, Farm Frenzy 2, Adobe Reader and USA Today. While we've only managed to obtain changes for ARMED!, we'll still fire up the alert that you can look forward to update notifications for both USA Today, Adobe Reader and Farm Frenzy 2.

The developers of ARMED! have released version 1.7 to the store, which introduces a number of features, improvements and bug fixes. We're huge fans of the title here at Windows Phone Central and the 

So what's new in version 1.7?

  • New animated skybox for Flotilla level.
  • Added small vibration when an opponent is found for a ranked game.
  • Added Portuguese translations.
  • New level select screen art.
  • New background art for splash and buy screens.

There are a number of improvements and fixes also bundled with the update, but were too numerous to include in this article. It's a sizeable update, that's for sure. Head on over to the ARMED! website for more information.

You can download ARMED! from the Store for $2.99 (£2.29).

USA Today also received an update (version 1.8), though we're not entirely sure what's included in the latest version. The app was recently updated not so long ago with a refreshed UI and a new, more simplistic logo. We can only assume this version contains more bug fixes that were not addressed in 1.7.

You can download USA Today from the Store for free.

Farm Frenzy 2

The highly popular Farm Frenzy 2 has been bumped to version 1.3, which follows 1.2 and the issue of saved games being erased after updating. But what's new in the latest version? Again we're not aware of any said changes that have been stated. If you are aware of any improvements or new features that we've most likely overlooked, then do sound off in the comments.

Adobe Reader

The same situation surrounds Adobe Reader. We're unfortunately not aware of changes included in the update, but we believe the bump to be minor. It was updated for the first time in existence earlier this month and we're back with yet another - someone at Adobe must be on the energy drinks.

The previous update was a heft one so again we'll assume that this latest version contains a number of hidden improvements and bug fixes that worked their way through checks.

  • I will keep saying it, Adobe finally fixed their app good with their 1st update. It's soooo much better. Took them awhile, but yeah. Good stuff.
  • Agreed. Still missing the jump to a page feature and resuming at a certain page (like in a book) after exiting the app, but still significantly better than the previous version.
  • Yea, missing the last page book mark is rather disappointing.  So it's still time consuming to continue to read the same book. Still a world better than the shameful 1st version.
  • It is worth noting that this version of Armed is supposed to include cross platform play once the corresponding version for Windows 8 and hopefully even iOS hits the marketplace.
  • The ios users will be glad they don't have to look for the app with apple maps!
  • -_-
  • Woot!!!
  • The Windows 8 one is out, you know. Well...ok, the real version isn't, but you can play the pre-release now. Idk if it includes multiplayer, I'd have to check.
  • Regarding Adobe Reader, search option never worked for me... Hope it does with this new update
  • FF2 changed the icon to the new XBOX green banner...
  • at last is reader fully functional for me :))
  • Hi. I just updated Adobe Reader in two phones, and it reverted back to the initial version, the one with the file list with black background, without the panorama view. Have anybody had this happened as well?
  • Same thing happened to me. I had Adobe Reader v10 before and now I have v9.
  • Yup, same thing. I lol'ed when I went in to check what was "updated". I wonder what that is all about.
  • Same for me, I 'upgraded' from v10.1 to v9... Really weird. I hope this is fixed soon.
  • I don't like the new logo of the USA Today app. It just nolonger looks good!
  • Lol
