If one thing is certain, people love the Bing Apps suite on Windows Phone. From Weather, to News to Finance, the Bing team has done a great job of bringing a great core-user experience, all for free. But there was one major complaint that the Windows 8.1 RT apps had but the Phone apps did not: Sharing.
Today, version 3 of Bing Sports (22.214.171.124) is now live in the Store for Windows Phone, up from version 2 (126.96.36.199), which came out in October. Large version changes mean new features and we’re happy to report Sharing is now onboard.

Fhotolens is a Windows Phone 8 photography app that applies a fish-eyed lens effect to your camera. Fhotolens also has an HDR mode to give your ultra-wide shots a High Dynamic Range. The app has been updated a few times over the past few weeks, building upon a rather appealing Windows Phone camera app.
The most recent update was pushed out today and takes Fhotolens to version 1.2.0. The update adds a few performance tweaks, bug fixes, and a new image viewer. The performance tweaks increases the image capturing speed two fold. HDR capture still takes a bit of time (keep in mind you're capturing three images) but standard shots are noticeably faster to capture and process.

The wait for Molome has been a long one. The photo sharing network launched on Windows Phone only yesterday, but the launch itself was plagued by bugs. It turns out, according to Molome co-founder and developer of the official Windows Phone app itself, the issues may be down to the incorrect version of the app being published to the Windows Phone Store.
Mobilligy Bill Pay is a Windows Phone app designed to help you manage your monthly bills to avoid any surprises or fees created by late or missed payments.
With Mobilligy Bill Pay, you simply add your credit card, utility, auto loans, mortgage payments and other accounts you send monthly payments to. The app also has flexible payment options to let you pay your bills directly from the app. Mobilligy Bill Pay has the potential of being a handy personal finance Windows Phone app. However, while Mobilligy has plenty of features, the user interface could use a little fine tuning.
Want to show your computer screen on your TV? AIRTAME aims to make it easy for you by not having to worry about cables like HDMI, DVI, VGA or DisplayPort. The crowdfunded project has reached its funding goal after just 12 days and has introduced several stretch goals to make the product even better.
Why should we care? The stretch goal of $1 million to create a Windows Phone app for AIRTAME (along with iOS and Android) has just been passed.
The last time we wrote about Molome, a popular photo sharing network, was nearly one year ago in February 2013. Back then, the question as whether or not the app and service would arrive for Nokia Lumias are all Windows Phones. Since then, we haven’t heard much about the app, which we first reported as headed to Windows Phone back in September 2012.
Today, nearly 16 months later, Molome has finally made its landing on Windows Phone 8, available for all devices.
So what is Molome?
It’s Saturday, which means it is time to look back and all that happened in the Windows Phone Store this past week. We’ll reflect on all the new apps that came, all the cool updates, and any betas worth mentioning. Let’s get to this week’s app highlights.

The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (www.smhi.se) has launched an official app for Windows Phone.

6tinder was an impressive app that just launched a little over a week ago in the Windows Phone Store. It was Rudy Huyn’s Tinder client for Windows Phone.

It has been a whirlwind year for Windows Phone 8, especially in the last few months. Today, Microsoft gets another feather in their cap with the unveiling of Path beta for Windows Phone 8.
Announced back in July during the Lumia 1020 reveal, the app is now available to download for Windows Phone 8 devices and finishes the 2013 blitz of apps and games.
Path, launched in November 2010, is yet-another social network. It originally made waves on the iPhone, later expanding to Android and iOS in general (iPad). It’s claim to fame? Path is a private social-network, where the user can purposefully limit who views and accesses their timeline to just friends and family. In fact, it’s limited to just 150 contacts max with no “public view” at all. Users can share messages and photos with those closest to them, without any fear of accidentally posting something publicly i.e. the opposite of Facebook.
Nokia has today released an update for Play To, taking the app up to version 188.8.131.52. This release includes the much anticipated fix for those running the GDR3 Developer Preview (Update 3), which saw the app lose all functionality and be rendered useless. It was only last week we covered news that the company would be releasing a patch to help users out, so we see this as a positive turn around.
