If you're a proud owner of a Zune HD, then Microsoft has a surprise for you - a raft of new and updated apps!
There are nine new apps in all:
- Finger Paint
- Trash Throw
- Slider Puzzle
- Splatter Bug
- Vine Climb
- Decoder Ring
Here are the updated apps:
- Shuffle by Album
- Zune Reader
- Penalty! Flick Soccer
It's interesting that Microsoft chooses to do this after being so silent about the Zune line for so long (some would say that Microsoft has replaced Zune with the Windows Phone lineup). That said, it's a great gift for Zune HD owners.
Microsoft plans on porting Zune HD apps to Windows Phone platform at some point in the future, so perhaps this release it related to those plans.
You can still pick up a Zune HD if you want one ... and why shouldn't you. All in all, it's a competent media player.
