Threema is a new mobile messaging app for Windows Phone that is billed as putting privacy first with end-to-end encryption to help insure that your messages can only be read by you and its intended recipient.

We had heard rumblings that the messaging app was in the works for Windows Phone over the summer and it hit Store shelves this morning. Threema's claim to fame is the security it offers through not only its encryption but also the anonymity. You can use Threema without the need for personal information such as email addresses or phone numbers and your messages are deleted from Threema servers after delivery.

At first glance, Threema comes across as an appealing and feature rich messaging option worth considering.

Update: Looks like the beta subscriptions have ended for VLC on Windows Phone. There's more good news though, as VideoLAN has announced that a beta for Windows RT devices may be available in a "week or two."

Original story follows: Disheartened when VLC did not announce anything on the Windows Phone front last week? So were we. There's light at the end of the tunnel, however, as the team behind the popular media player announced that they're now looking for beta testers for Windows Phone.
