    Mid December, the day I decided to buy the Webster Dictionary app on the WP8 US Store on my Lumia 920, Webster released another dictionary app.

    Everything about it is the same: Size, price, title, version, screenshots, description, publisher, etc. I patiently waited until one of the releases disappeared, but the *older* release got updated yesterday (which didn't reflect to the version number, still 1.0.0.0).

    So:
    1- Which one do I buy?
    2- How seriously is MS monitoring the store, really?

    I've seen this happen a lot since wp released. Devs just don't understand how to publish updates, or they create a new dev account and publish again. I'd download the app called wp7applist and they search for the apps. Look at the update history on both and get the one that gets the most updates. Also notify the publisher that they have two apps.

    Thanks for the advice. Do you know an easy way to contact devs? The store page is quiet on that front.
