Windows Phone 7 Apps

Earlier this evening we reported that the updated Facebook app for Windows Phone 7.x was submitted to the Store. At the time, it was unclear from Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore if the app still needed approval or how long it would take to be published.

We can now report as of 10PM ET, the new Beta of the app is available for download.

They have also built in the ability to create a slick looking personalised “magazine” from your favourite websites which are then made available to read offline.
