Updates to Viber and more Windows Phone apps and games

Popular Windows Phone apps and games such as Viber and FIFA15: Ultimate Team have gotten an update and are better than ever before. Here’s a round-up of some of them.



As an avid audiobook listener, I was excited to hear that Audible (free to download but requires monthly subscription) recently got even better. Besides improved stability, updates include the ability to play audio samples and to rate and review books from within the app.

It’s also easier to discover terrific new writers and books by getting personalized recommendations. And if you like a work by a certain author, you can now view similar titles by the same author or narrator.

FIFA15: Ultimate Team

Build the ultimate fantasy football team (or soccer team, to our American readers) from a roster of more than 10,000 players from more than 500 licensed teams. Updates to this free game include additions to the player roster and improved connection stability so your thrilling, fast-moving games won’t skip a beat.

Maleficent Free Fall

In this super-popular Disney game, the update includes 40 new Moors levels when you play as the defending tree guardian Balthazar.

You’ll also get two new magical game modes: Collect gems hidden in the enchanted flowers and shoo away the troublesome Flying Fairies. Maleficent Free Fall for Windows Phone 8 and up is free to play, but some in-game items require purchase.


This free game–the top music game in the Windows Phone Store with more than 1.6 million downloads–has just gotten even better. SongArc now features a new design, a new tutorial, and an enhanced Sheet Creator and a discovery tool to find new artists.

Think you’re the best music composer? Share your music scores on social networks and compete in worldwide leaderboards.



Text, call and send photo and video messages–for free–over Wifi or 3G. The app has more than 460 million users worldwide, so it’s a good bet that some of your friends are already using this free app.

With Viber’s new update, you can now easily view all photos in a chat just by swiping. In addition, you can change the language in the app’s settings.
