Baconit app gets Microsoft Band integration and more in latest update

Last week, the folks at Baconit pushed out a big update, introducing a handful of features and improvements to the app. Now again, the company has pushed out yet another nifty update which brings several enhancements and features with the most notable one being Microsoft Band integration.
Users with a Microsoft Band 1 or 2 will now be able to receive notifications and check messages on their wearable device rather than using your phone to check them. Furthermore, there’s full notification center support the app shows you all the notifications such as new messages, and once read, they are removed from the tile and the lock screen on your device.
Here’s the complete change log for the latest update:
