Time Out is a magazine (www.timeout.com) that helps you find out things to do in supported major metropolitan area. Reviews, information on events, activities, local art exhibitions, food and more are all included. Think of it as your guide for everything you should at least check out. The company who owns the publication has now updated its Windows apps for Windows 8.1 with an array of new features.
Currently, there are Time Out apps covering New York, London, Paris (both French and English), Barcelona and Los Angeles available on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone. They're free to download and we strongly urge you to check them out. But what about the Windows 8 apps, what's new in this latest version for each of the supported cities?
According to the change log we've received, here's the list of new features and changes:
- Snap Views - 8.1 snap views can be sized at any size across the screen, enabling you to control what's displayed
- Search - The search box will now be included on the app itself as well as the new and improved windows search
- New tile sizes – There are 4 available sizes of a tile now to match the new layouts introduced in Windows 8.1
- Fixed map view of locations
- Events - What’s on listing using new API
- Film - Time and cinema locations now displayed with new API
- Tickets - Option to book events with new API
- Reviews (read only) - Added to film / venue details along with film times
- Shows - Times listing with extra feature sort cinemas from ‘nearby’ or ‘all

The Windows Phone versions are also worth picking up should you not have a tablet at hand (or wish to access the content when on the move), you can find links to those editions in our Windows Phone article.
