Overnight the MSN apps for Windows Phone were updated and you should see those notifications on your device now. What was updated? That’s a great question. It is a complete mystery as there are no release notes in the app notes for them. This isn’t the first time this has happened. If you remember back in October we got a similar update of mystery.
So far this morning I have seen updates for Weather, News, Health & Fitness, Travel and MSN Money. I have not seen an update to
MSN Sports yet but it could just be that it hasn’t hit the UK store yet. In reviewing the updated apps this morning, I found no significant changes to any of them – good or bad. I did notice that on the initial start of each app after the upgrade that it took a few seconds for it to initialize. I suspect that was doing some backend data updates. However upon starting the apps again, they were zippy as normal.
If you notice any changes in the app do leave a comment below and let every know. For now, I guess it is just enjoy the updates!
Update: Ashish Mohta, CEO & Editor of WPXbox tweeted me this morning that the MSN apps can now be installed on a SD storage card and do no have to be installed in your phone’s main storage. I tested this on my Lumia 1320 and indeed, all the apps can now be installed on the SD card. Thanks Ashish!
