Windows Phone’s MSN apps are some of the best apps on the platform because they are well designed, fast, and packed with useful features. Microsoft has recently updated all of the MSN apps on Windows Phone bringing improvements and fixes across the board. No new features were introduced, but lots of bugs were eliminated and performance has been improved. One particularly pesky bug with the Weather app involved the live tile not updating. With these new updates that bug seems to be gone.
All the other apps got small fixes and improvements across the board with fixing bugs and increasing the apps’ performance. With Windows 10 around the corner the MSN apps may be getting a Universal App make over which would increase the shared code between the apps on different platforms. Windows 8 benefited from the MSN apps because they were a showcase for what modern apps could do, and now Windows 10 may use a revamped suite of apps to showcase the new and improved Windows platform.Further reading: Microsoft, MSN, Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8.1
