The official Microsoft Insider app has been a popular way for Windows Phone owners to score new Bing wallpapers and exclusive ringtones for their phones each month. As manager of the app (and the Insider newsletter), I’m thrilled to announce we’ve just launched a new version that’s been rebuilt and redesigned for Windows Phone 8. Get it now.
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new and improved. My own favorite new features (in case you were curious) are the ability to record your own ringtone and fan wallpapers. Check it out and tell me what you think. I’m eager to hear your questions and feedback.
One example is the Netflix app, which was updated today.. Does anybody, besides the developer, have a clue what's changed, or been added, or even taken away for that matter? I hate to be petty, but is it smart for us to just hit the update button on these apps? Imagine if the app had a serious security flaw, and we weren't provided with a change log, so we decided not to update the app and be in danger of a security breach.... Not a good way of doing things..
A description of what's being added, changed, deleted, or fix within an app update should be mandatory in the WindowsPhone Store... After all, this isn't Google Play... Lol
@ abm, and winphonephan
I third that! MS should encourage developers to provide some amount of change log when apps are updated. Whether it's a simple performance fix, a new feature added, or a complete overhaul, we should know what we are downloading into our devices.. Actually, isn't it our legal right to be provided with this information?
WinPhonePhan, Amen to your suggestion buddy! Exactly my thoughts.. 8-)
You know what my pet peeve is? When apps don't actually explain what they updated in an update. Something like the above would be a great example to follow for ALL Apps.
