Future Factory is a new Windows Phone game that hit Store shelves last week. This arcade styled shooter provides you with plenty of robot targets to blow up and shoot up.

The story line has you battling your way out of a secret factory where robots rule and humans are not allowed. The game has appealing graphics, challenging game play and plenty of weapons to buy and upgrade.

While the game is not available for low-memory devices (the developers are working on it though), it is another quality product from the AppCampus project and well worth a try.

If you are like us, joining the millions with a 'connected' home, then Nest is likely on your list of devices. Nest is a smart thermostat that not only learns your heating and cooling patterns to predict changes, but lets you remotely check in and alter your home's temperature from a PC or phone.

Previously, developer Rohit Rajendran had an app named Nestle on Windows Phone. The app was a Nest app, but due to user limits with Nest's API and naming issues (Nestle was awfully close to Nest), the app was pulled down. The good news is Cozy is an all new app from the developer of Nestle, and it is entirely rebuilt.
