Microsoft updates BLINK, fixes issues with Nokia Lumia 620


Microsoft has released an update to BLINK, but the app remains on version 1.1 so what's new? It's a hot fix for the Lumia 620, which experienced issues when attempting to run the app after the previous update.

We've confirmed that BLINK now works on the Lumia 620 (the issue appears to have been tied to the 620's 512MB of RAM as opposed to the 1GB found on other WP8 devices).

If you've forgotten what was included in the 1.1 update, here's the changelog:

  • Fixed edit bug for certain phones
  • Fixed crashing issue for certain Lumia 820s
  • Added tap to select

You can download BLINK from the Windows Phone Store.

Yeah, and looks mildly amused being in the box :D

my roomate's step-mother makes $70/hour on the laptop. She has been without work for 6 months but last month her paycheck was $21545 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more here...

rodneyej says:

So if they can get the app to work on the 620 then can't they get it to work on WP7.x???

I don't see how that would follow. What makes a WP8 app for WP8 is the code and API access it has, not the RAM requirement.  Fact is, if this app requires access to features that WP7 doesn't offer, no, it can't and TBH, that seems to be the case.

Thanks to this app I finally got a good pic of my cat =^.,.^=

ListenUpGuys says:

Good. Well done developers.

L2nak says:

Aaaah really want to download this cause it seems better than smartshoot imo. But damn that resolution scaling!

afgzee says:

This is a great app, love it, nice to see Microsoft updating its apps, but wonder when they will, if ever update their Facebook app with some worthwile changes?

Montpbm says:

I am wondering the same thing..

kymikai says:

I have not experienced any BLINK problems on my 620.  Having young kids, it would be nice if BLINK allows more than one stream of photos to be taken. 

Xaphoon148 says:

Just save and take a new stream, you can go back and pick shots later...
Great app btw :)

Jey Si says:

This also let HTC 8S gets the update.

hariganesh26 says:

Want this app for 7.8

Thelmie says:

So it was an issue. I couldn't see any good reason for it not letting me install, citing my device lacked features the app required. Time to have a play

Darwindaz62 says:

Just noticed BLINK states it doesn't work on a HTC 8S, but it DOES!!  And I've used it successfully several times!
