Microsoft Updates MPN App

Looks like Microsoft is committed to improving the Microsoft Partner Info mobile app.

Within a week of launching the app for partners with devices running Windows Phone 7 or Google Android, Microsoft released a version 1.2.

According to the app's curator, Eric Ligman, the new version adds feeds for Dynamics Partners and Microsoft subsidiary partner program information from Chile, Indonesia and Latin America. The new version also expands the feeds for partners in the United Kingdom and Australia.

Ligman, director of Worldwide Partner Experience for Microsoft, is looking for feedback on ways to make the app more useful to partners. He's currently running a survey on whether partners want product information added to the app.

The app aggregates MPN-related Twitter feeds, blogs, technical resources and partner and Microsoft MVP conversation threads.
