Facebook app updated.

Version 2.5 of the Facebook app for Windows Phone is now available in Marketplace. The free update include such features like threaded messaging, better tagging, wall cleanup, hot links and the ability to "Like" comments. The Wall cleanup is quite interesting as it lets you delete posts and comments from your hold. A tap and hold will do that.

Whatsapp 2.0 lets you set profile picture within the app.

There's a minor update for Whatsapp on Marketplace. Version 2.0 lets you set your profile picture from within the app itself. This feature can be considered as the main new functionality in this new release. Otherwise it's the usual mysterious bug fixes.
As a FYI, Whatsapp is a messaging app that lets you send text, picture and video messages. The app is free for the first year and costs $0.99 after that. I call it the app that wants to kill SMS. However, unlike SMS, Whatsapp requires a data connection. Whatsapp is also available for iOS, Android, and Blackberry.
Download Whatsapp on Marketplace if you do not have it already or check Marketplace notification on your Windows Phone to update.

Friend Tracker for Windows Phone

Friend Tracker is a simple app that let's you keep track of your friends no matter which social network you use. At least it works with Facebook and Windows Live. It may work with other services as well but I cannot confirm for now.

Friend Tracker is free to download on Marketplace.

Viber beta for Windows Phone now available.

Viber is another app that lets you make phone calls, send/receive messages over the web free of charge. Of course, you have to incur data charges. Finally, Viber has released a beta version for the Windows Phone platform. However, it does not let you currently make phone calls, only messaging and photo messages are supported right now. Maybe the Viber team are trying to come around the Skype limitation whereby the latter cannot receive calls when running in the background. But this is more about how the Windows Phone OS works.

Viber is already available on iOS and Android. The Windows Phone version can be downloaded in MarketPlace.
