    NAB has now developed an app for Windows Phone, adding to its Android and iPhone apps. It features an ATM locator, which uses Microsoft's Bing Maps, a live Twitter feed for NAB tweets and standard payment-transaction capabilities. The bank took advantage of Windows Phone's Live Tiles feature by allowing the currency-conversion part of the new app to be turned into a Live Tile.

    Facebook has finally managed to make its iOS app less terrible. The new update is faster and less error prone than the old app was, and it is much nicer to look at, too. Facebook is reportedly now making its staff use the Android app until they update it, so we'll probably see a better version of that app out soon.
