Candy Crush Saga, Lumia Moments and Motion Data apps all get small updates

As we get ready for the long Memorial Day weekend, some important Windows Phone apps are getting some updates today to fix some minor bugs. Those apps include the popular puzzle game from King, Candy Crush Saga, along with two Microsoft apps: the camera app Lumia Moments and Motion Data.

Candy Crush Saga

The new version number of the Windows Phone version is 1.53.0.2. There are no new levels to check out in this update but bug fixes are always welcome. Remember, Candy Crush Saga will be an automatic download for all Windows 10 devices when it is launched later this year.

  • K.
  • Seems faster
  • I can't even update Candy Crush anymore. Luckily I can still save to facebook, but I can't see profile names. I just see the Candy Crush profiles, but somehow they represent actual FB profiles. Weird...
  • If you are facing issues with updating the app, then you can try to download and install it manually. To do so, open WP store from UC Browser and seach for Candy Crush Saga. At the bottom left of the page, you'll find a link to download and  install manually. Click on it and save it to your SD card or Phone memory. Once done, restart your phone and go to store. You'll fine a link to install local apps if you click on bottom bar with three ellipses. Select Candy Crush Saga to install and then you should be all set. Just make sure to uninstall it first before installing it again. This trick worked when I was facing the same issue few weeks back.
  • this looks like quite a bit of work. I'll do this in a couple of months when I finish the episodes
  • hehe..Not really, if your progress is saved with your FB profile then you should try it.
  • will do. thanks
  • really!!! never knew about that... i read a few articles back, but didnt know if it was implememnted
  • I keep having this problem wih every alternate update. And uninstalling it to install from sd card opens up lot new gates of trouble. The author also forgot to mention that the lumia moments is also available for lumia 640 and 640xl
  • Move to phone memory.. The game updates and installed.. It works for me..
  • If WhatsApp update was also there it was great...another Thursday going to end :crying:
  • I know this feel bro.. :(
  • A big WhatsApp update most likely won't come soon. But Hike Messenger will.
  • Sucks for some of us who are heavy WhatsApp users
  • Dropbox for WP and Plague Inc updated too =)
  • Fhotoroom updated too
  • Unable install or update candy crush.. But other apps are installing without any problem
  • I got the same problem on my Lumia 1520
  • +720. move to phone memory. It works for me..

  • Lumia Moments works great on Lumia 640 also :)
  • I have problems with Moments on W10 1520. Hope this update fixed it.
  • So for those with Microsoft Bands and have Motion Data - what is the rationale between step counts?  Using Motion Data for the Fitbit app I get almost 50% more steps recorded than the Band's app. Anyone got any insight on how this might be occuring?  Also I though Motion Data is meant to compliment the Band's sensing (something mentioned in the Band app) so how do the two work together to provide an accurate count - which app should you believe?  I believe the Band is losing probably 40-50% of steps when compared to my wife's Fitbit Charge HR - we walk the same distances.
  • Motion data works without the band. The phone records the steps and noticeably counts way more steps. The FitBit tracker is by far the most accurate as I've used it on a treadmill with the app open and it counted perfectly.
  • Motion data is closer to the Fitbit than the MS Band which kinda surprised me.
  • Is there a way to view my places visited (tracked via motion data) online, and for a longer period of time? Google Latitude used to offer this.
  • Yes. NSA.gov
  • Hahahaha. :D
  • There is just an option in the motion data setting itself at the bottom that shows your recently visited places (but just the activities of the past 24hours only)
  • So did The Home Depot, Dropbox, Snake Rewind, Pimp My Band and Shazam.
  • Pimp My Band got a great update with a Live Tile for the Band's battery life - awesome!
  • So for which phones Motion Data is available?
  • From a previous WinCentral article: If you are using a Lumia 630, 635, 930, or 1520, you may want to check the Store for an update to Motion Data.  Only phones with the newer Snapdragon 400, 600 or 800 series can leverage SensorCore, as it uses aspects of the chipset not found on earlier S4 hardware. You also need the Lumia Cyan firmware to enable.
  • Thanks for the info, Chris. I guess my 822 is now becoming old. I gotta get a new Lumia.
  • Its also available for Lumia 640
  • I can't update through store beta
  • And yet the main candy crush site still has no link to the windows phone store download.
  • Lumia moments is for Lumia 640 too update.. :)
  • Updating Motion Data just deleted my 5 month history :-( Without warning!
  • As below, the 640/640XL is a good upgrade option unless you are going to hold out for the forever coming new Flagship phone(s) :-D with Windows 10
  • Wow everything is getting updates except for Denim on my Lumia 830! #ATTSUCKS
  • Wish they would bring back the Smart Camera with the Lumia Camera (like in the Lumia Camera Classic).
  • Yeah I miss that in Candy Crush too. Clown.
  • Hopefully this fixes the issues I had with Facebook integration in Candy Crush after the last update. Then again, by the look of the comments above I may not be able to even download the update!
  • Candy Crush now has collectible sugar drops whatever the hell they are.
  • They give you prizes when you collect enough, same prizes as the daily booster wheel. Speaking of which the wheel had been tweaked slightly, it starts spinning from a dead stop now instead of already in motion.
  • Yeah there's funky new animations all over. The wheel still never stops on Jackpot though...
  • Dropbox and font candy get update too
  • How can install candy crush in my Lumia 640xl plz some body help me ​
