WNM Live releases updates for both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8

Voice Messages Feature Screenshot Profile Screenshot

WNM Live, the location-based social network for meeting people, has released an update to its app for both Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 users.  This latest update contains some major new functionality, including:

  • Voice Messaging – You can now send/receive up to 60 second voice audio clips with other users.
  • Message Delivery Receipts – You can now see when your message has actually been delivered to the intended recipient’s app, regardless of which platform they use.
  • Photo Hub Integration – Upload a photo to the WNM Live World Stream directly from the Windows Phone Photo Hub.
  • Much, Much More – Enhanced push notifications, performance improvements, featured posts, and much more.

These two latest updates (for WP7 and WP8) bring both platforms back in alignment, feature-wise, after having diverged about six months back with the release of the WNM Live Windows Phone 8 app.  WNM Live recently passed the one million user mark and continues to have the largest percentage of its users on Windows Phone devices, despite also being available on iPhone, Windows 8, Facebook, and the Web.

If it has been awhile since you checked out WNM Live, now might be a great time to do so.  The app is available for free from the Windows Phone Store here.

#2InstaWithMassiveLove–new free Instagram app, but you get what you pay for

It seems it is the fashion to release an Instagram app these days. Developer SmokedbyWindows8 has just released their version to the market, and the app is available to download now.

At $0.99 it is pretty cheap, and even better is that the free trial is full featured, and payment only serves to remove the ads, making the app effectively free for those who are happy with the banner.

The app supports all the major Instagram functions, including uploading, and delivers filters by using the Aviary library. It is also available for Windows Phone 7 also, a major advantage over other rivals.

Unfortunately that’s where the good news ends.  The app appears to mere embed the Instagram mobile website, and therefore runs rather choppily and does not look anything like Metro. Secondly the parts which are not Instagram’s mobile site are poorly designed and rather ugly – after being spoilt by Itsdagram its difficult to look back.

qrcode13640123Still the app is effectively free and it does work, and #2InstaWithMassiveLove has hooked up with Pixaroll to make it easy to print your Instagram photos to real paper. In fact Pixaroll is offering another 800 sets of 5 free photo prints with ‘instamatic’ or ‘wmpoweruser’ with the release of this app. There are ‘prints’ button integrated into the app that allows the user to print Instagram photo they upload.

We would generally recommend Itsdagram over this app, but if you are on Windows Phone 7 this may be a reasonable alternative.  Find it in the Windows Phone Store here.

Here is some good news for increasingly neglected-feeling Windows Phone 7.5 users.

Joe Belfiore has just tweeted that the new Facebook beta and YouTube apps, which were just released for Windows Phone 8, will in fact also be coming to Windows Phone 7.

The apps will unfortunately not be released immediately but “a bit later”, but the news indicate that Microsoft is still thinking about users of their now legacy phone platform.

Windows Phone 7 SkyDrive login issue now fixed

skydrivewp7

We reported yesterday on an issue Windows Phone 7 users were experiencing when trying to log in using the SkyDrive app on their phones.

The issue, which was due to back-end problems at Microsoft has now been rectified, as Microsoft reports on their status page, saying:

The problem has been fixed. Thanks for your patience. 20 Apr 11:10

Unfortunately Microsoft never revealed the source of the problems, but at the time many Windows Live authentication changes were being implemented, including two factor authentication and the ability to use an alias on your account.  Hopefully these problems will remain isolated issues.

Has the problem been resolved for all out readers? Let us know below.
