This morning, popular list-making app Wunderlist released their long awaited version 3, with over 60 improvements onboard. The top-rated app has a large presence on Apple's iOS and Google's Android, and there is even a version for Amazon's Kindle. Wunderlist did have an app for Windows Phone, but like some other apps (cough, IMDB, cough) it has withered and died.

Now, the company has made it official that Wunderlist 3 is heading to the Windows ecosystem, and it looks to be a universal app.

While usually I report on some terrific apps on the Windows Phone Store (and some not-so-good ones too) here on Windows Phone Central, this post is different. Today I share my first Windows Phone app with the readers - the community that's more aware and usually critical, in a useful way.

On a daily basis, we look up details of a national highway in India, a region associated with a license plate number, or MICR code of your bank branch. A couple of months ago, I set out to build a one-stop app where one could find all these 'codes of India', and hence the name, INcode.

Zomato is a popular restaurant finder Windows Phone app that gives you recommendations for restaurants in your area and lets you look at menus, pictures, contact info, and directions. Available in over forty cities across the United Kingdom, India, Brazil, the UAE, New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, Turkey, Portugal, the Philippines, Qatar, and Sri Lanka, the Windows Phone app was recently updated to version 5 with a complete design and user experience refresh.

After the major refresh, the app continues to get quick updates, and has just received the fourth update in three months. The app has now been updated to version 5.4.0.0, and brings in some new features. The app's also lighter, and definitely faster (So, yeah, I've pre-empted a lot of comments!) across the board.

Facebook Beta gets updated with minor improvements

"It seems faster" doesn't quite cut it for every update that hits the store with no change log. This includes Facebook Beta, which has just been bumped to version 8.3.0.5 (up from 8.3.0.4). Unfortunately, Microsoft has failed to provide a list of changes included in the release an thus we're not entirely sure what's actually new with this update. That said, it's available for download.

Fitbit for Windows Phone 8.1 is here (Updated)

Starting today, Fitbit is announcing the availability of their official app for Windows Phone 8.1. Fitbit is the standard for wearable fitness tracking devices with their One, Flex and Force trackers, in addition to their Aria fitness scale. The new Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1 finally lets those who leverage Fitbit technology to sync their data on the go just using their Windows Phone. Fitbit keeps track of the progress of friends, steps taken, distance traveled, floor climbed, weight, calorie intake, and full user history.

Windows Phone Central first reported movement on the Fitbit app for Windows Phone back in December when the company sought to hire a developer for the project. Fast forward six months later and the app is here. From a gorgeous design that embraces the Modern UI to the Live Tile to the speed, the Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1 is well worth the wait.

Let's check it out in our video review!
