Microsoft has recently released an update that is concerning its three MSN-branded apps: Health & Fitness, Travel and Food & Drink. However, none of these updates have been documented in changelogs, but according to user feedback, it seems that the updates mostly have to do with improvements in app loading time. Of course, various other stability improvements have been deployed, as well. Here are the main features of these three apps:
