Casts – a beautiful beta app in the podcast segment
There is a new podcast app coming in the Windows Phone 8.1, but that is still a month away. We are super fans of Podcast Lounge for its features and usability. And there is another player here, Casts. Casts is a podcast app and its currently free and its a beta.
So if you’re ready to test it, go grab it. After all its free, there is nothing stopping you from giving it a try. And remember its in beta still, so go easy if you find any bugs. And do report it to the dev 🙂

Let me get one thing straight, UnfollowSpy is for you if you wish to get insights in a lite and easy way and also wish to have Twitter and Facebook statistics . Yeah i know that there is no Facebook support now, but its coming, its planned. Just use that and exit this post now. But if you wish to have both the apps running for the other services UnfollowSpy has to offer, and also wish to have even more detailed insight on your Instagram account than what Unfollowspy has to offer, read on. And by no means i favour one over the other, both are awesome! it just comes to what you’re looking for.
First thins first, you have to login with an Instagram account, its simple. And then comes the sad part, first time load. Wait quite a long while for the app to get the stats from Instagram and to analyse and to work on it and present it to you. Depending on the followers, following and post and likes the wait time will vary. Thankfully you can tell it not to update on startup and can reduce various stuffs under the settings to load it faster, given that you’re okay with stats not so deep. If you see the settings page yourself, you’ll get what i am saying. Everything is simple and easy.
You first see the dashboard, from where you can move around
The app gives a very detailed analysis without annoying you like some other apps, you do get one notification that suggests to follow the app’s Instagram account, which you can opt to neglect. The app is fully functional, has a great UI and UX, it just works as you expect. Does what it says in a sweet manner, if you are a heavy Instagram user and care for stats, go for it. There are several packages which you can unlock the features of the app, and you can also get the total pack which includes all the feature and also gets rid of the advts. Its a very little price to pay for an app this good, its also a good way to support the dev.
Update: 13th May, 2012
Nokia nailed down the problem with “Download failure” it will be fixed on Monday (14 Apr 2012), and users will be able to download 1.0.0 version safely. Please do NOT press “Download” button more than 10 times to avoid double charges. More info at their official site: http://fm-radio.mobi
Nokia N9 FM Radio application for N9 unlocks FM receiver functionality for Nokia N9 phones. New version has 2 different themes and RDS support, it is far most popular radio application in the OVI Store.
Previously FM Radio (Retro) was shared for free as Beta version with many users, after testing was done, author gathered a lot of important feedback and made improvements in the backend. For instance, it would be impossible to support so many different headsets without Beta testing. Retro design was recognized by users as well, so new version has got a clear Fallout style theme. FM Radio was the first radio application in the store and after the public release became most popular very fast.
First OVI Store version was obviously lacking RDS support and in despite of good looking UI did not fully fit into Nokia N9 style. But version 1.0.0 change the situation completely. Now user can choose between Retro style and new Nokia N9 theme. New version has automatic channel search and supports favourite channel list.
After the introduction, let’s check available features:
Nokia Store is really picking up a buzz these days due to big price drop in Apps and Games in India. Now Nokia is giving away some premium apps for free at Nokia Store. So Shazam Encore is free to download from Nokia Store. Go and grab it asap. 🙂
