Official Newegg.com app gets full Windows Phone 8 support in latest update

Newegg.com for Windows Phone 8

Newegg.com, the one-stop place for all computer geeks and nerds, is one of our top official apps on the platform. It’s always been well designed and even has some unique features, like the ‘time machine’ feature added to the last update.

Version 1.4 is now live in the Store, and although it’s not a huge update, it’s important enough for HTC 8X and ATIV S users out there, as you can now finally take advantage of the full-resolution support it brings. The latest update also brings some more “bug fixes” but the main take away here is the WP8 support.

Newegg.com Windows Phone

Unfortunately, Newegg has not yet opted for more advanced WP8 features like Lockscreen notifications or even a double wide tile. But this 1.4 update does have fast-app resume and it is super quick on loading, ensuring a solid user experience.

Pick up version 1.4 of the official Newegg.com app here in the Store. Thanks, Eric D., for the heads up

Probably hasn't hit your store just yet.

MrA2Z says:

newegg services are only available in US, so I think we will not get it.

Support for Canada? Come on people.

I'm not seeing the "time machine"

diplomat696 says:

Must be a regional thing I guess. Does newegg.co.uk exist or only newegg.ca (Canada)

No support for 8x in uk....

Into your morning!

Isn't Newegg a USA based store? Why would they support it in UK then?

seanles says:

precisely. people bitch about apps on here that they have absolutely zero reason to use, and never would. this is one of those times.

CJ Thunder says:

I haven't used newegg in a while because they won't ship to po boxes. Anyone know if that has changed?

Doesn't allow you to complete purchases. L920 AT&T.
If indeed a bug I'm sure will be resolved quickly and with vengeance.

No support for Portugal...

seanles says:

were you planning on shopping at newegg from portugal? Do you even know what newegg is or where they operate??

Wp8 only? My 7.x app is @ 1.3.1.

MrA2Z says:

For all those who are complaining about support in countries other than US, newegg is an online retailer which only ship goods in US so this app will not be available in other regions not even in Canada.

That's not excusable. They have Newegg.ca specifically for Canadian shoppers. The Newegg app is available in the Canada WP8 Store, so it should allow us to use it otherwise it should be removed and made a US-only app.
