Photoplay updated, Live Tiles and toast notification support now available

Photoplay Windows Phone 8

We've covered Photoplay in the past and more recently took a quick look at an upcoming update that was to introduce push notifications and Live Tile support. This new release is now available and has been pushed out to the store. If you're not familiar with the brand, Photoplay is an Instagram-like service that enables consumers to utilise smartphones for photography and share shots on social networks, as well as their own.

To serve as a reminder, here's what is new in version 1.2:

  • Users can reply to comments but just tapping left edge of the screen near the comment you wish to reply to
  • It's now possible to receive notifications about comments, likes, new followers, replies, reposts and feed updates with new photos from favourite users
  • Animated Live Tiles with feed photos, simply pin the app tile to your homescreen
  • Performance improvements
  • Stability improvements

You can download Photoplay from the Windows Phone Store (Windows Phone 8 only). Thanks, zhoulhas, for the tip!

i find Photoplay a lot better than Instahipster lol
downloaded Instance just to see what's all about Instagram...honestly, no big deal '-' and i have few friends who use it!
i actually prefer Photoplay with all the strangers i added from WPCentral forum XD

Photoplay seems to have a lot of young girl selfies but the content is slowly getting better.  That being said the filters are much better than instagram and are quicker than using a photo editor.  I will use the filters and save into an album to upload or share on other social sites.

Does anybody know how to check the likes and comment that people wrote about your pics... Because its like before when you saw every like, added person...etc for everybody....kind of hard just the see your likes...etc
