Face it. There are heaps of word games available in the Windows Phone and Windows Store. Some can be fantastic ways to pass the time while others struggle to be get off the ground. Word Drop Deluxe is a relatively new offering that hopes to fit into the fantastic way to pass the time category.

The game, available for both Windows Phone and Windows, is a small collection of word search styled games. The four games are laid out in Boggle style where you are challenged to create as many words as possible with each game having a different twist. Some may find the game a little on the vanilla side at first glance, but after spending a little time with Word Drop Deluxe the game comes across as a fun word game worth trying.

Microsoft's Joe Belfiore took time from his presumably busy schedule to share a little more on Continuum for phones. Now that Windows 10 for PC is out the gate the focus for the team at Redmond is on the mobile side of the OS.

For a while now, Microsoft has been saying that Continuum for phones requires new hardware. Despite the demos at Build 2015 and speculation to the contrary only newer, high-end phones can second-screen to an external display. In fact, the only reason I am mentioning this is some people who don't follow every drip and drab of Microsoft news may still have questions. Hopefully, this answers them.
