FB Pages Manager for Windows Phone essentially helps you stay on top of administrating your Facebook pages (hence the name). The app sports numerous features that are absent from the official Facebook app and is a must-have should you regularly interact with your Facebook page(s) on a daily basis. The app has recently been bumped to version 1.5 and we're looking at a sizeable update with a strong list of new features, joined by fixes and alterations.

So what exactly is included in version 1.5? According to the official changelog, you'll be able to enjoy the following after updating:
