Windows Store Collection: Comic Book Fans

This week we are setting aside our Windows Phone and taking a look at one of the Collections in the Windows Store. As many know, the Windows Phone Store has a series of Collections that pulls together Windows Phone games or apps that are from the same genre such as shopping apps, photography apps or racing games.

The Windows Store also has a large selection of Collections that focus on Windows 8 apps and games. These Collections are very similar to those we have become familiar with in the Windows Phone Store and cover categories of Windows 8 titles such as hidden object games, apps for music lovers, racing games and more.

For this week's roundup, we are focusing on the Windows Store Collection Comic Book Fans. It is one of the smaller collections but focuses on apps and games that delivers the comic book experience to your Windows 8 device. We've pulled four of the titles to highlight this week that you may appealing.

Microsoft Lumia 640 review

Microsoft is steadily getting its handle on its device portfolio after the Nokia acquisition. And it is starting at the bottom and gradually working its way up with the likes of the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532 and the Lumia 535.

Then we got to Mobile World Congress. Microsoft had taken over the space once inhabited by Nokia and used it to deliver a keynote very early on the first morning of the show. Among the Windows 10 talk was the introduction of the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL.

Both another step up on the ladder from those that came before, and taking it up to around half-dozen smartphones to carry the Microsoft logo. The Lumia 640 has big shoes to fill, coming in as a replacement for the very popular Lumia 630/635. Does it do a good job?

That's what we're here to find out.

Hands-on with 6discover for Windows Phone

82

Windows Phone users do not have an official Snapchat application, but 6discover, the latest app from Rudy Huyn, offers one of the major features. You won't be able to create, view, or share snaps with friends. You also won't be able to use 6discover to chat or create stories. You use 6discover for Snapchat's Discover section, which was introduced by the company earlier this year. It lets you see articles, photos and videos from different publications such as CNN, Food Network, Vice, Bleacher Report, and National Geographic.

Check out our hands-on video to see 6discover in action.
