Thanks and I don't know what the improvement.. Sorry

Sam Sabri says:

Hey Edward, it's ok. Thanks for trying.

Thanks for all the tips and info.

Microsoft should make it compulsary for all developers to post a change log when updating an app.

theefman says:

When they don't do it themselves it'll be hard to impose such a rule on others.

shosansharma says:

True and also devs should have detailed Change Log somewhere for users to go through.

ReconVirus says:

And not just something as simple as "bug fix" something detail telling us what was broken or improve upon

Now if only they could offer a way to transfer sms from a wp7 device

sj2202 says:

Thanks for the tip.
I got MixRadio through auto update. Downloading extras+info now.

makarand14 says:

The Transfer My Data app's new feature of backing up to MicroSD has certain limitations. Its caps at 540 messages and 540 contacts.
I definitely got more of each.

Alphageek_UK says:

It just backed up over 5000 sms messages on my 1520.

alexloe says:

Are you still on WP 8.0 or already on 8.1 Dev Preview?

Can't get the new version with all phones on 8.0 that I tried. I still get the old version 5.xx.xx

Alphageek_UK says:

Yes, I'm on the 8.1 Dev Preview.

alexloe says:


So it's clear that the new version 6.xx.xx is only installable on devices on WP 8.1.

Phones with WP 8.0 can't install the app. SD card sideloading doesn't work either.

kleider1 says:

Nokia mix radio is updating. Doesn't say what's changed though.

Cutting Edge says:

Did anyone notice that yesterday Translator app got updated and its name changed to Bing Translator? However, recently Bing Weather and other Bing apps had from its name removed the preffix Bing. lol

Among all weather apps, Blue Skies is the one that best fits me. Simple and accurate. Updates are constant, always bringing new features. Really glad to see another one out. Dark theme is amazing!

hello_moto says:

I'm glad you're liking it!  If you have any suggestions on features you want to see, just let me know!

Absolutely LOVE Zedge! I had the Ringtones app before on my 925 and discovered you can no longer download ringtones through that. It voice directed me to Zedge, so I installed it on my 925 and my 810, which of course is running 8.1. When I checked out the wallpapers, I was thrilled. Absolutely PERFECT app! I'm already using their wallpapers on my 810 and can't wait to do the same on my 925 when I get it updated to 8.1.

Of course, Nokia MixRadio is another favorite app of mine! Been using it exclusively for music on my 925 since I got it.

Please can someone confirm whether ZEDGE works in India or not ? I used it 2-3 months back (yes it was there since long. Dont know why wpc says it came a month ago), and it was a web wrapper at that time. Said that by high court order, zedge is banned in India. Even today when I'm trying, it says unable to connect to servers.
No one has ever said that zedge isn't available in India, am i the only one with this trouble ?

wpfan2804 says:

I've been using it since its launch. It works fine in India

Hi Saksham,


I guess u r using 2G connection. Try it with WiFi or may b 3G, it will work.

I tried with WiFi and it worked. But again stopped working in 2G.

ThePumisher says:

Well, the Update for Nokia Mix Radio isn't a transparent Tile...

jay5353 says:

Transfer my data only date changed no update in India Lumia 920

lum5 says:

Yaa no update for transfer my data India...thumbs down

Shuyin says:

MixRadio is definetly faster than before. It handles the collection better than before (I had to wait 3 seconds until the list was loaded) and is a perfect substitute for xbox music now.

Oh really ? That's great ! I'm downloading !

shosansharma says:

Avirall Pro and Lite also got updated. If you could please inform about them also. Thanks!

rizzo183 says:

OMG the 'MixRadio' update is HUGE guys!! It has finally added support for my country!! woohoo!! This is so awesome!!!

rizzo183 says:

....Is what i WOULD say if Nokia was a little nicer towards us users in Bangladesh :(

SergyOrtiz says:

It's such a shame that Nokia Mix Radio isn't available for my country yet 

I guess with the accompanied fw update it enables new cell/wifi network status icons. Plus for the icon changes the Verizon logo at startup

Dear anyone help my Lumia 525 after updating 8.1 now it shows required Wi-Fi connection in windowsStore... for almost game and apps which is more than 25Mb .even required Wi-Fi for downloading subway surfer in store.
