App Update Roundup

Just before we head into the weekend, the Windows Phone Store has had a few app updates pushed through. Not only have we got LastPass in the mix, but Foundbite and other apps have been bumped to new versions. Head past the break for more details and links



LastPass is a useful password manager available on multiple platforms, offering auto-login and security for consumers with accounts across multiple websites. The app for Windows Phone has been bumped to version 1.97. In this latest release, here's what the developers have packed into the solution:

  • Support for additional multifactor authentication options
  • Support for latest enterprise policies

You can grab LastPass from the Windows Phone Store for free (requires premium subscription).

Foundbite 1.4.1

If you enjoy capturing moments when out and about, you'll definitely want to have Foundbite in your Windows Phone app arsenal. The app itself enables you to capture sound recordings and combine them with photos captures by the device. The end result is a cool gallery-esque effect with ambience to boot.

The latest version of the app (version 1.4.1) includes the following:

  • Italian localisation.
  • Redesigned live tiles
  • Lots of small bug fixes.

The team are looking for help for adding support for Dutch, French, German and Spanish. If you're interested in helping out, head on over to here for more details. If you're still experiencing a slight bug where the app fails to launch, a patch has been submitted to the store to address this.

You can download Foundbite from the Windows Phone Store for free.

How secure are those password managers really?
Not very eager to put my password's up on a remote server :|
Same with remote PC apps, sending/reading stuff with the mobile, and have to log in to a remote server...
Paranoid? Careful? Skeptical...

LastPass encrypts and decrypts data locally, only encrypted data goes to the server. A strong master password makes a strong key for the encryption.


It's safer to use LastPass and have unique and strong passwords for every account, instead of using 1-5 passwords you would remeber to type.

Thank goodness for WP central. From their articles I find out about apps being updated. Since I updated to update 3 and Lumia black the store doesn't notify me of any updates. Lumia 920 on at&t

Does access point work on the 8.1 dev version?

I cannot get my MMS to work on Rogers and when I click on Access Point it just goes to the black screen then back to settings.
