SongArc

Update: Looks like this update is only for those users registered in last week's beta test. You can register for the closed beta by filling up this form.

Last week, we wrote about the upcoming changes to music-based game SongArc, which includes a more modern user interface, gameplay tweaks and much more. Several users were already testing the new features through a closed beta.

Just over one year ago, I brought news of the first release of SongArc, an exclusive Windows Phone music game reminiscent of Guitar Hero and Audio Surf. SongArc lets users download 'sheets' of preprogrammed data to hammer away to their music collection on their phone with colorful graphics, and it is driven by a 1.2 million user community. SongArc maintains an astounding 4.7 (out of 5) rating on the Store from 6K reviews and is consistently the top in its category.

Today, the developers behind SongArc have announced that they have accepted funding from European accelerator Traction Tribe to bring the game to the next level. Previously, SongArc was a hobby by András Velvárt and his team, but now with Traction Tribe, the SongArc group is looking to expand the one-of-a-kind game to iOS, Windows tablets, and later this year, Android.

SongArc has long been one of our favorite games for Windows Phone, let alone our favorite music game, and now they're giving loyal players like yourself to help shape the game's future by joining in on a beta for the next version. The next verison of SongArc is promised to be "the biggest update ever". Version 2.0 of SongArc, a substantial update on its own, landed in December, so we're really looking forward to whatever developer András Velvárt is cooking up for this next update.

Everyone loves that feeling when apps and games have updates available. We also love a great deal here and there.

Head on past the break to see which apps and games are included in this roundup and what's new.

Besides the Instagram Beta update we reported on, it’s turning out to be a busy Tuesday morning as a whole horde of big name apps are getting updates on this day. Some fall under the rubric of the boring “general improvements and bug fixes” while others have a few more details. Regardless, as least you’ll know that some of your main apps are getting the treatment they deserve.

Let’s see who gets what in today’s Windows Phone app roundup.

Windows Phone Central Gaming Roundup: The Next Big Thing

One of the helpful features of the Windows Phone Store is the Collections.  These are conglomerations of apps and games that fall in line with an underlying theme. Be it photography, shopping, sports or fitness these collections are a great place for one stop app/game shopping.  

One gaming collection always seems to catch our eye is The Next Big Thing. It's a collection of games that the Windows Phone Store gate keepers see as having potential to hit it big.  It is also the focus of this week's Windows Phone Central roundup.  

We spun the wheel and picked four of the games currently listed in this collection to highlight.  Three are very strong contenders for becoming the next big thing.  The fourth... well the fourth needs a little fine tuning but is on the right track as well.
