What are big fans of? Apps that are exclusive to Windows Phone. The kind of apps that are born and raised just on Windows Phone before making the jump to other platforms. Apps like SongArc, Youmigo, and Sleeve are some examples of those apps that are (for now) exclusive on Windows Phone. Foundbite is also one of those apps and it just picked up a great update. Let’s check it out.
We last covered Foundbite in late November when it picked up version 1.3 in the Windows Phone Store. It was notable for introducing a few new features like finding Twitter/Facebook friends, new capture process, upload improvements and smoother scrolling. Today we’re looking at version 1.4 that brings:
- List of people following you or who you’re following.
- Facebook Login
- Push notifications for commenting/followers
- Notification hub
- Improved capture process, one photo with 45 seconds sound (Reasons for the changes I wrote about here - http://blog.foundbite.co/all/capture-process-reviewed)
- Uri scheme added for developers to interact with Foundbite
- Redesigned camera roll
- Feed design changed with improved scrolling performance
- Available in all markets now
Version 1.4 of Foundbite is a pretty big update. It not only refines the solid foundation of the app, but introduces new features to make the experience even better. You can now see who you’re following and who follows you (head to your profile to check that out). There’s also a notification hub that will show you who follows you or who commented on your bites. Speaking of noticiations, Foundbite now introduces push notifications so you can see when people follow or comment. Nice!
You’ll also get the option to login with Facebook, if you’re not into creating a separate account for Foundbite. There’s also a URI scheme for developers to tap their apps into Foundbite. And finally, Foundbite can be found (see what I did there?) in all markets.
Foundbite is a really unique and fun app for Windows Phone. If you haven’t already downloaded it you need to do so now! It’s free in the Windows Phone Store and available to those with Windows Phone 8 (512MB supported).
Thanks for the heads up James!
