We’ve been playing with Baconit Early Access for the past few weeks and so far we’re digging the new changes to the app. Once you get version 3.0 we think you’ll like the new features.

Head into the Windows Phone Store to grab version 3.0 of Baconit for free. There’s also a donate version that goes for $1.99 in the Windows Phone Store. Both apps are free of ads and fully featured. Right now we're only see the free version with the new update, but the donate version should be getting it anytime too!
