AppFlow 2.0 Is now available in the marketplace with much more functionality and Live Tile support. If you are new to AppFlow, find the video after the break.
New features added in this release,
Live Tile Support Added:
The live tile shows the total number of apps in the marketplace, the daily featured app and thumbnails of the 100 newest apps in the Marketplace.
The app thumbnail has also been revamped for a much classier icon.
Categories & Localized Prices:
In the new version weâ€™ve made it possible to browse the Marketplace categories â€“ enterntainment, tools+productivity etc â€“ and also added support for free, trial+paid, paid and â€œallâ€ filters. Try it out â€“ itâ€™s a great alternative way to browse the Marketplace!
Also, app prices show up in your local currency, not in US dollars like before.
Faster then Marketplace Browsing
Weâ€™ve added some further tweaks to make loading and browsing faster than on the Marketplace. Unlike the Marketplace, the app downloads multiple thumbnails and screenshots in one request, making loading time of lists, application details and application screenshots an average 2-8 times faster.
Not only does this mean faster loading and browsing than the official Marketplace app, but also makes it the fastest 3rd party Marketplace browsing app.
New App Lists
Weâ€™ve introduced new lists to help app discovery even better:
- Best Live Tile Apps
- David vs Goliath
- Apps Gone Free
- … and other useful lists!
I just tried the app, it works as they say. Its a fun and efficient way to browse the marketplace.
