It seems developers are embracing Universal apps much faster than expected.

New in the store is version 2.2.0.2 of the Deezer music streaming app for Windows Phone, which features a new Facebook-like drop down menu, which makes it easy to access functions from anywhere in the app, unlike earlier, when users had to return to the home page.

The home page is now dedicated to personalized suggestions, based on your listening history.image

Deezer is a subscription service at $7.99 per month, and can be used on up to 3 authorized devices. As the app is now universal, it should be updated in lock step with the Windows 8 version.

Callcorder Pro lets you record your phone calls on WP8

Perception Systems has brought their popular iPhone app Callcorder Pro to Windows Phone 8.

Because Windows Phone 8 mutes the microphone for 3rd party apps during calls the system uses a PBX-type server to record both sides of the conversation. Due to this the app is currently US-only, though Perception Systems are hoping to eventually expand to other regions.

To record an incoming call a user simply needs to open the app and press the callcorder button. After that this app will dial the recording line and the user can tap the merge call button once it enabled and the call will be recorded.

For recording outgoing calls, users also have to open the app and have to tap the callcorder button. The application will dial the recording line and users can then tap the ‘add call’ button once it enabled.

Now, the user can call the person they want and finally tap “merge call” and the recording will begin.

Despite using an external server the app is a one-time payment only of $9.99.

The app features:image

  • Record incoming and outgoing calls
  • Record unlimited phone calls
  • Email recordings
  • Upload on skydrive
  • No subscription fee
  • Record incoming and outgoing calls
  • Transfer recordings (mp3) to computer

The $9.99 app unfortunately does not have a free trial, and can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.

Group Tiles updated with Windows Phone 8.1 transparent tile support

Transparent tiles Create transparent tile Create pattern tile

Group Tiles is an application that helps to better organize the tiles on your Start Screen. Group Tiles allows you to create custom stylist tiles that you can pin to your Start Screen as group headers, i.e. Games, News, Working, etc. This way you can organize your app tiles to groups and finding them will be much easier.

With the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1, Group Tiles has just been updated with support for transparent tile to show your start screen background.
Besides, Group Tiles also provides a lot of new customization options, including new patterns and more UI improvements.

New Features
- Support transparent tiles for Windows Phone 8.1.
- Select several of patterns for your tile.
- Improve the UI of all pages.

Notes
- Group Tiles does not create a folder. Group Tiles just generates special tiles that look like a group header so you can visually separate different groups on your Start Screen.
- Group Tiles cannot support the “wide and short” tile, simply because Windows Phone does not support tiles at that size. Therefore when you create a wide tile, it will have the same height as other wide tiles.Group Tiles QR

Group Tiles can be downloaded at the Windows Phone Store here or using this QR code.
