VK for Windows Phone

VK, a popular social networking site in Russia and other Russian-speaking countries, has had a Windows Phone app for some time. This week, the app got a major update to version 4.0 with a bunch of new features added.

If you download the app from the Windows Phone Store, here's what you can expect to see with VK version 4.0:

  • in-app notifications about friends birthdays
  • manage users black list
  • add users and groups to favorites
  • new audio player capabilities: view lyrics and current playlist
  • it is possible now to hide a news source in news recommendations and other news lists
  • videos uploaded by users or groups as well as video albums are now represented in separate lists
  • suggested news support
  • you may start writing a news post and continue later -- the app stores the draft
  • quick in-app help is available through Support menu option
  • the app is translated to Brazilian Portuguese.

There is a version of VK for Windows 8.1 as well, but there's no indication that app has received the 4.0 update yet.

Thanks to Alexander for the tip!
