Microsoft Releases New/Updated Apps For Zune.

  • August 4, 2011 7:24 am

The Zune software may have been absorbed by Windows Phone 7 leaving many users to fear for the future of their MP3 player of choice, but Microsoft apparently still cares about you. Despite numerous signs that Microsoft was beginning to move away from the audio-only hardware — slashed prices, killing off the Zune original storefront and porting of Zune apps to WP7 — the software giant has come back with a slew of new Zune apps as well as updates for older apps.

  • New Zune apps: Finger Paint, Calendar, Trash Throw, Slider Puzzle, ColorSpill, Splatter Bug, Vine Climb, Decoder Ring, and Tug-O-Wa
  • Updated apps: Shuffle by Album, Zune Reader, Penalty! Flick Soccer, Email, and Echoes

A couple of weeks back we heard a couple of rumors claiming Microsoft was working on a new piece of Zune hardware. Those rumors have not been confirmed nor has any hardware been seen/heard of. But even if Microsoft really is done with pumping out new Zune hardware, it’s nice to see they still care about providing new apps and services to current Zune owners. Such a trend is rather rare in the tech sector these days.

Zune owners: Be sure to let us know what you think of the new/updated apps.
