WPDownUnder for Windows Phone Updated

WPDU WP7 Update

A couple of days ago we released an update for WPDownUnder on Windows 8, and today the update is now also available in Marketplace for Windows Phone. The update for Windows Phone brings many of the same bug fixes that were in the Windows 8 update and also brings a few of its own.

As with the update for the Windows 8 app, this update also brings with it the improved support for displaying images and videos in the Articles. But it also has a few other changes in it as well.

With TechEd just around the corner WPDownUnder has launched an additional Twitter account which will be used by Roving Reporters to tweet updates on what is happening at TechEd, so we have added these tweets into the twitter feed shown in the app so that you can catch all the news in one place. In addition to this when sharing articles, the hastags #WPDU and #wp7au will now be added to the end of the text so that others on Twitter can follow the conversation.

We have also been listening to your feedback and have included a fix which now clears the number of unread articles on the app tile when navigating to the app after receiving a toast notification for a new article. We have also fixed an issue which caused text being entered into a new comment to be cut off after reaching a certain amount of characters (thanks for your in depth bug report schlubadub!).

And we are not finished yet, we still have plenty of updates and features planned which we think you will like. So be sure to follow us on twitter then keep an eye out here and on WPDownUnder for future updates.

The complete list of changes can be found in the Change Log here.
