Updates are always welcomed, especially for apps we use and love daily. Today two such apps are receiving small updates - Xbox One SmartGlass Beta and Foursquare, both on Windows Phone. Let's find out what's new and improved in the latest versions of these two apps.
Xbox One SmartGlass Beta
The latest update is now at version 1.0.07 in the Windows Phone Store, however the changelog is from the prior update. We're not seeing anything jump out as new to us in this update, so please let us know if you spy anything different. The ability to 'like' items in your activity feed and game clips was from the update last week.
Sigh. Still no Swarm app for us on Windows Phone, but Foursquare is getting an update today. This update brings the app to version 18.104.22.168. Sadly, no changelog is found here today. You'll have to let us know if you spot anything different in this update.
Thanks for the tips everyone!
