Well as ducktape conveniently pointed out a short while ago, Microsoft has FINALLY released some new apps, and an update for Twitter! Well let's check them out, shall we?
First we have the Twitter update. When I tested out Twitter, I didn't notice much had changed, but what hit me was the fact that everything is now a lot smoother. Just last week I was using the app and it was constantly telling me that it couldn't find things and was being slow about everything. So it's safe to say that this was merely a performance update.
Animalgrams is a simple word game that has an animal theme. You use letters from the animal's name and spell out as many words as possible within the time limit. It doesn't seem like much was put into the game, but nonetheless, it'll probably give me something to do in the car. I give this one a 3/5.
MSN Money is the app we were teased about a short time ago in a Zune Insider podcast. Along with the Twitter update and Animalgrams, MSN Money has finally been released as well. What does it do then? Not only can you convert currency, but you can also read many business articles pulled straight from the internet. It has information on the stocks and a lot more as well. This app is actually more than I thought it would be. It gets a 5/5.
Well that's a wrap for the latest apps for the Zune HD. And once again, MANY thanks to zB regular, ducktape for tipping me off about this
