Tweet It! gets multiple account support, location aware notifications and more in latest update

My Editor's Choice for third-party Twitter apps gets another fantastic update We all have our favorite Twitter apps on Windows Phone. Mine is Tweet It! Sure, the official Twitter app is a looker but if you need something with a little more power, you turn to third-party apps to deliver. Tweet It! is that app for me because not only does it look great, but it has some unique and clever...

Photography app OneShot gets a glut of new features in 3.0, including auto-leveling and more

OneShot, developed by Andy Stumpp, has quickly become one of our go-to apps for snapping photos on Windows Phone 8. With each update, the app becomes more user friendly, adds new features and brings new innovation. The last time we visited this app was back one month ago when version 2.0 landed. Today, version 3.0 has gone live and if you know anything about version numbers that’s a big...

Simple Calendar gets new features in latest update, making it more elegant than ever

One of our top calendar apps for Windows Phone 8 would be the aptly name Simple Calendar. The replacement scheduler app has one of the nicest looking Live Tiles that we’ve come across and the unpretentious UI makes using it a breeze to operate. Version 2.4 just went live in the Store and it finally brings small and medium versions of the Gob and Frodo themed tiles, allowing you to...

OneShot 2.0 brings live sharpening, photo editor and grids to your Windows Phone 8 camera; becomes a must-have app

Windows Phone 8 currently doesn’t suffer from a lack of high quality photography apps, but that doesn’t mean all are created equal. OneShot, which we’ve covered in the past, was one of the first indie apps to make use of Nokia’s new imaging SDK and today it received a major update. Version 2.0 is now live in the Store and as the new milestone marker implies, there’s a lot of new...

Get this now: SysApp Pusher will notify you of app updates for your Nokia, HTC or Samsung Windows Phone

As the Windows Phone ecosystem grows, manufacturers will continually look for ways to expand and differentiate amongst themselves. One easy way for them to do so is with custom OEM Stores like the Nokia Collection or Samsung Zone. The problem is with Windows Phone, you can’t force check for app updates, even for “system apps” like Samsung’s call blocker or Nokia’s Display + Touch. Sure...

Avirall, arguably the best stopwatch app for Windows Phone, is now available and temporarily free

Avirall, arguably the best stopwatch app for Windows Phone, is now available and temporarily free

We’re not huge on stopwatch apps for Windows Phone if only because there are so many of them it makes it hard to pick the top ones. Often enough, it comes down to which you think is the prettiest, which let’s be honest, is slightly subjective. However, we’re making an exception today for a special app: Avirall. For one, it’s feature packed, so much so, we’ve barely figured out all of...

Pandora app, MetroRadio, gets a fresh start, becomes even more awesome on Windows Phone

Pandora app, MetroRadio, gets a fresh start, becomes even more awesome on Windows Phone

While Pandora made a big splash when it came to Windows Phone 8 earlier this year, MetroRadio had been around for much longer offering access to the same service. Back then, it would occasionally break as it used non-standard APIs to access the Pandora library. That has now been fixed, amongst other things, with the latest must-have update. There are currently two versions of MetroRadio...

Our favorite pinball wizard Dr. Pickaxe returns to the Windows Phone Marketplace

3D pinball at its finest Last week we highlighted the new pinball game Dr. Pickaxe as one of our new favorite games for Windows Phone. Developed by Tainicom (who also made The Juggler), the game was on special for $0.99 during its first week and received our 'Editor's Choice' distinction. Unfortunately that game had a tiny bug in it resulting in the first few games registered under ‘...

Pinball: Just one fix... Although we’re still waiting on that pesky Xbox LIVE game to go…well live, we have something else to keep you gamers happy: Pinball League’s Dr. Pickaxe.
