For those of you who don’t know, MetroMail Beta is an excellent Gmail client for Windows Phone handsets, which let users make the most out of the service on their handset, since there’s no official Gmail app available.

It’s not just MetroMail, Magnify BETA also received a pretty big update. Personally, I use app to get all the latest happenings from the world of technology on my Windows Phone handset. The app was updated to version 3.0.8, and introduces a whole lot of new features, including OneNote support, pull to refresh feature, new social share icon, fixed the issue related to duplicate articles, and much more.
