RT apps

The Windows Phone 8 app for Windows 8 has received a small update today. Moving the version markers from 1.1.2303 to 1.1.2410.

Unfortunately, there is no change log that we can find at the moment and this appears to maybe just be a performance and bug crushing fix. If you’ve had any issues along the lines of performance or bugs let us know if this update fixes anything.

Another unfortunate piece of news is the lack of features. The Windows Phone 8 app still pales in comparison as a syncing solution for Windows Phone 8 compared to the old day of Zune. You still can’t add Xbox Videos to your device as an example.

Are you seeing anything we’re not? Let us know below.

It’s been two-years since Windows Phone has been on the scene and if there is one app we’re really yearning for (not looking at you, Instagram), it’s Hulu. The app has been available on Xbox 360 for sometime and we use it daily, so it’s with great joy we see it’s now available for Windows 8.

The RT app will run on Surface tablets and of course Pro devices. It’s very metro influenced and the Hulu team even tossed together a demo video of the service (it’s still not available yet in our Windows 8 Store). The app will come pre-loaded on Acer and Sony Windows 8 devices although anyone with Win 8 can just go and downloaded it to the store. Combined with the recently released Netflix app (also gorgeous) and Windows 8 will have some great media services out the gate.

But what we’re really wondering is of course when will the Windows Phone 8 app land? Hulu now has two of the three systems in place, so is it too much to expect them to release a phone version on October 29th? We sure hope not because boy will that be an odd omission. [Note: Embedded video is on Hulu, so you probably can't view it mobile]
