Fanband for Microsoft Band owners gets a new Windows 10 PC and Mobile app

Fanband, the popular app that allows Microsoft Band owners to pick and change their theme from over 2,000 choices, has released an all new Windows 10 UWP version for both PC and Mobile users.

Developer Liquid Daffodil now says that all Fanband features are available on all of its platforms for the first time, including iOS, Android, Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, HoloLens and Xbox One. They include:

  • Custom Theme Designer
  • Full Search for over 2000+ themes
  • Automatic scheduled Band theme updates
  • Interactive and adaptive toasts and tiles
  • Jump lists
  • Deep link tiles

In addition, some features currently available in only some versions of Fanband will be coming this weekend for the others, including:

  • Adding back in the ability to use Bing Wallpapers into the Designer
  • Adding back in the ability to use current lock screen into the Designer
  • Adding back in the ability to create themes from your Xbox Avatar
  • Custom Theme Social Sharing

The developer adds:

Another note: fanband no longer relies on scheduled background tasks to update your theme on schedule, as that common method is typically resource intensive, so it now uses Azure Scheduled Notifications to update your Microsoft Band theme remotely! Wow! Current fans of fanband can update at any time, however full device synchronization requires Windows 10 for any devices.

Download Fanband from the Windows Store $1.99
