Twitter's official Windows Phone 8.1 client stops working - so go third party!

icon

The world of Internet services moves at a pace and it's not surprising that older platforms don't get on fully with the latest services and APIs. In this case it's the official Twitter client for Windows Phone 8.1 that has stopped working - we did know that this might happen at the start of June, according to Twitter's own announcements. You'll remember that they replaced their (also quite old) UWP application with an all-encompassing PWA in the Store a few months ago? Don't panic if you're on 8.1 though, third party clients come to the rescue.

People think of Windows 10 Mobile being dead. Not quite. Not yet. We're still looking at (at least) a year of support in terms of monthly patches and fixes for Windows 10 Mobile 'Fall Creators Update'. And build 15254.401 (from .369) is fresh out today, so go grab it for all phones currently on the 'Fall Creators Update'. Meanwhile the Creators Update branch gets its regular patches and the Anniversary Update gets a first 'extension' patch.

Windows 10 Maps gets a big server-side search fix

icon

It's no secret in the Windows 10 world that Maps has its share of issues - one of which is horribly outdated map data in some countries and one of which is that the online 'quick match' search results aren't (ironically) matched up to the format of place names in the offline maps, resulting in 'We can't find' errors on the very thing you just accepted. Happily, this is now sorted out, as of a server-side fix applied a few hours ago.

The Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro is finally officially recognised for CU and FCU

icon

The Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro, available across Europe, seemed to have fallen through the cracks at Microsoft and was not provisioned to update to Windows 10 Mobile (CU or) 'Fall Creators Update' retail builds, despite being 'officially supported'. However, changes behind the scenes an hour ago on Microsoft's Windows Update servers have finally fixed the upgrade path for this, the only currently sold Windows 10 Mobile 'flagship' in Europe, we can exclusively report.

Reminder: the last ever Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update

icon

As we approach April's Patch Tuesday updates (ok, they've been a day or two late in recent times, but...!), it's worth noting that this one will be the last ever patch for 'Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update'. Which is massive in theory, but it won't impact too many real world users, especially those clued up phone users who read AAWP, as I explain below.
