Nokia is looking to partner up with Vodafone UK to offer free Netflix on all Lumia 1020 purchases. The FT reports the deal will include one year's worth of Netflix for those who purchase the Windows Phone on Vodafone. Nokia is currently signing a deal with Microsoft for the latter to purchase its devices and services division, but it's clearly not halting aggressive marketing anytime soon.

NFL Mobile is a feature rich Windows Phone 8 app designed to keep you up to date with all the Pro Football action. One of the key features for NFL Mobile is the ability to manage your NFL.com fantasy football teams directly from your Windows Phone.  

The app was recently updated to version 8.1.0.12 and while there's not an official change log, our tipsters are pointing to fixes with the Fantasy Football features that were a little buggy on release.  It is our understanding that the update now fixes bugs that prevented you from switching players, managing lineups and held back other key Fantasy Football features.

It’s been awhile since the official Foursquare app for Windows Phone had an update. In fact, it was way back in June when we last saw some minor bug fixes come to the popular checkin app. Since then, we’ve also seen the Windows 8 version launch with high praise from users.

This morning, version 3.1.3.0 has landed and while it brings a few changes to Windows Phone 8 users (more on the below), from reader tips we've received, the Windows Phone 7.x version now has the new UI. (We haven’t been able to verify since we’re out of town, but a few of you tipped us on that fact).

There's nothing worse than running over your contract allowances when using your smartphone. It's easy to do should you include data-intensive services and numerous friends requiring social time. Luckily, mobile operators have been releasing apps that help customers keep track of exactly what they're using, whether it be data, calls or SMS.

Vodafone NL has launched such a solution for Windows Phone, offering a free tool to Windows Phone customers to help them remain on top of contract allowances, as well as general account management. Better yet, it's well designed and is yet another official solution from a mobile operator that's beginning to back Windows Phone.

This morning, Nokia surprisingly released their new Glance Background app in Beta form. It’s shocking because for all the things we knew about upcoming changes to Glance (e.g. color choices, notifications) not one single leak pointed to this ability.

The app simply lets you add a background to your Glance screen and while in theory it’s simple, in reality it’s one of the coolest things we’ve seen.

The most notable fix corrects the bug that caused lockscreen updates to not match the weather information. You also have Simplified Chines and Hungarian languages added and a optional usage data setting.

We might not get an official YouTube app anytime soon that isn’t more than a web player, but we’ve got some solid third-party alternatives. The two that contend for a spot on your Start screen are myTube and Metrotube. It’s hard to pick one as a clear winner since they approach YouTube on Windows Phone slightly different and therefore both rock. Let’s check what’s new in the latest myTube update in the meantime.

Version 3.0 of the Official Twitter app for Windows Phone brings a handful of new features

The official Twitter app for Windows Phone was last updated back in June and that was after its major overhaul in February of this year. Today version 3.0.0.0 has landed on the store and if that should ring a bell, it means a major version change and not just a few fixes or enhancements.

Loading up the app and heading into settings we find a surfeit of new and welcomed changes, including the much coveted “dark” theme. While the default light theme was always sharp looking, dark (along with that Twitter category bar at the top) looks especially elegant.

But besides that new theme, there are a few other changes, let’s take a look.

Momentum is a Windows Phone 8 app designed to illustrate the positive moments in your life. At first glance you'd think Momentum was a gaming title but it's listed under the "Lifestyle/Health" section of the Windows Phone Store.

The idea behind the app is that as you record positive experiences, fuel is added to a hot air balloon and a journey documenting your daily achievements begins. A diary of sorts that would make the Fifth Dimension proud.

Momentum isn't going to appeal to everyone but if you're looking for a unique way to accentuate the positives in your life, Momentum is worth checking out.
