App Update Roundup

We're kicking off a new week with our Newsroom is full swing and Build 2014 well and truly behind us. That said, there's still some news and app updates to cover for you all to remain up-to-date with platform business. We'll catch a few apps and games in today's roundup to kick off the week.

Surfy

Surfy 3.8

Surfy is a pretty decent alternative web browser to Internet Explorer on Windows Phone. The app was previously re-released late last year, but today we're looking at a new release with some highly requested functionality.

Here's what's new in version 3.8:

  • Share link via NFC
  • Save Login credentials
  • Find on Page
  • Voice support for Spanish, Portuguese and Italian

Both the free and the paid versions of Surfy have been updated. Check them out on the Windows Phone Store using the links and QR codes below:

Star Warfare

Star Warfare: Alien Invasion 2.7.2.3

This popular fast-paced alien shoot ‘em up game for your Windows Phone 8 device, Star Warfare: Alien Invasion, calls upon players to play the role of a soldier pitted against wave after wave of alien invaders.

The title has been bumped to 2.7.2.3, which includes the following:

  • Crash bug on 512M devices fixed
  • Arena bug positions fixed

It's a nice update and a game we recommend you try out should you be a fan of said games.

Odds and ends

Not only have apps and games received rather large updates with change logs to boot. We've been made aware of some minor release, which can be found below:

Thanks, Matic, for the tip on HERE Maps!

Asphalt 8 I will update you after wp8.1? I have to delete everything for that

DennisvdG says:

Not quite sure what you mean but all of Asphalt 8's data is stored online so you can just delete it and redownload it without losing progress

Abdal says:

Where is the save game option in asphalt 8 ??

yaro da yaar says:

It gets auto synced when you connects to internet

Abdal says:

You mean when we log in with fb account ? Does game saves with fb account. What if I uninstall and then reinstall, then i have to log with fb account to get the last saved game ??

Aanze says:

Yep.. I didn't want to sync with fb, I lost all progression.

Here drive+ could use an update...

crise says:

And what about here explore getting out of beta

Duduosf says:

Wow, I had even forgotten about the HERE Explore! When was it the last time we received any news from it anyway?

Rich,quickly correct "Warfare" in the title before the grammar nazis appear :p

caliborn says:

Too late. We're already here. :-p

KMF79 says:

Don't get me started. Ever article I read on this site has misspelled words that make understand the intended point quite difficult and very annoying to decipher. I don't understand why it appears so difficult for the news writers to write their stories in Word for Office. The damned thing will do the spell checking and syntax corrections for you.

topleya says:

I've also noticed annoying mistakes on this site recently.

They used to be brilliant and WMPoweruser was the website full of amateur mistakes, but they seem to be making the mistakes here now.

t3chnick says:

Ever article... Words that make understand... Hmmm

Tlcoman says:

Seems slower

cyborg4 says:

This one's new on me. Just stop irritating the hell out of everyone, maybe? :P

Duduosf says:

Haha right on!

yep, update HERE Maps, nice. Also, in The Netherlands update Skype (Win8)

SamiHanna says:

Am i the only one around here, who thinks that Holland is taking this whole site over?

pr0phecy says:

why would you think that?

SamiHanna says:

Everywhere i go, i see Dutch names.

Yes, you are the only one. ;-)

reda igbaria says:

I tipped you before!! About here maps

Soble says:

I can't download video trimmer.... 1520

topleya says:

Samsung only app I think

Aniket Bhat says:

Try Nokia's instead.

Mr Lebowski says:

And now that those 2 Wi-Fi proxies are closed it makes it harder to download non Nokia apps like Samsung's Video Trimmer which is better than Nokia's and actually gets regular updates, unlike Nokia's which doesn't. Nokia' hasn't been updated in 6 months, Samsung's has had 3 updates this year already following one in December...

DeanoV6 says:

I wish they would fix the HERE Maps bug where it just hangs most of the time when trying to get directions. It got introduced in an update months and months ago and has made the app almost unusable for me ever since :-(. Had to install an app to put the bing maps icon back onto my Lumia 820 instead so that I had a map that could actually give me directions again!

pRAlaY says:

I have a problem with my gps. Its not showing me accurate location. neither in here maps or google maps. :( Lumia 720

Abdal says:

Did u updated the maps ? Where you have saved maps of your state/country ? If in sd card, please move to the phone storage also reinstall here maps and drive. Also do soft reset by holding volume down+switch button for 10 to 15 seconds and then release it.

anandv427 says:

Where the hell is WhatsApp update any news?

wtma says:

Have never been able to update Surfy this past 2 days. I don't know what's wrong :-/

ej1024 says:

Yup, HERE maps ate almost all my 10 GB in 7 days, I hope this was the it..
