Outsider

Outsider is a Windows Phone community app from Liquid Daffodil, who also brings us the Twitter client glƏƏk! and the lockscreen utility Locksider. We've been notified by the developer that a glitch in the Windows Phone Store is requiring those who have already purchased Outsider to re-purchase the app.

Microsoft has been alerted of the issue but in the meantime, Liquid Daffodil has made Outsider free to avoid users from having to re-pay for the app. The change is already live and should be reflected in all regions in a short bit. The free offer is only for the next 48 hours though.

You may not recognize Liquid Daffodil but you may recognize some of the developer's Windows Phone apps. glƏƏk! and Outsider (formerly known as ... I'm a WP7) are likely the two biggies in their portfolio but there's more.

You have also have Add to Contacts which adds local search and Local Scout results directly to your contacts; Calendar Search which adds a keyword search with filters for your Windows Phone calendar; and Outsider Extras which adds a few additional features (add an image to your profile, get access to all the Today's Picks and Category Wallpapers, etc.) to your Outsider app.

The "new" Outsider app for Windows Phone

Delays with publishing in the Marketplace should not be a surprise anymore to those familiar with Windows Phone and such was the case with Liquid Daffodil’s Outsider app which is finally live in the Marketplace.

If you recall, Outsider is the re-brand of the Windows Phone community app I’m a WP7! along with its companion app, Outsider Extras. The app was submitted 31 days ago but due to some debate and controversy over the logo, it was delayed a bit.

Outsider contains the same features as I’m a WP7! that includes tips, videos, ringtones, wallpaper, hangouts, gamer hubs, meetups, checkins, messaging and more. It’s a whole sub-community of users and is the largest of its kind for Windows Phone.

The controversy dealt with using the Windows Phone/Microsoft Flag image in the tile for the app which you can see above. A slight modification has allowed the app to sail through the approval process making it available to end-users. Microsoft has been enforcing their copyrighted “Flag” for a while now (the Windows Phone Central app was notoriously rejected the first time for using the same logo). Anyway, it’s good to see it live.

The other interesting aspect is that Liquid Daffodil has thrown down a challenge for me, Ben Rudolph (Microsoft) and Ben Lower (Microsoft) to unlock some the hidden Easter Eggs in the game.

  1. Find and complete the Easter Egg that unlocks their Lair.
  2. Discover and unlock at least six (6) of the first seven (7) of the remaining 12 Easter Eggs.

We have 72-hours to complete it and if all three of us do so, Liquid Daffodil will make all their apps free again for 72-hours (Outsider Extras, glƏƏk, etc.). Guess I have some work to do.

Pick up Outsider for Windows Phone for free in the Marketplace. It’s worth your time.
