Windows Phone Apps

Back in September 2014, we announced Maestro, a brand new email client coming for Windows Phone 8.1. The email client promised to be a full-featured app for Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo! Mail. The app entered in a public preview for a few months before going back under wraps for the winter.

Today, Maestro 1.0 is here, and boy has it improved. From new features to performance improvements, Maestro has a clean slate going forward. The developers behind Maestro, Hidden Pineapple, are promising many new features for future builds, including conversations, better avatar support, more gestures, bug fixes, and improvements.

Even better? Maestro runs for $1.99 but if you download it today, it is yours for free forever. This offer is only good for the next 24-hours, so grab it now!

Earlier this morning, we reported that Lumia Camera Classic was updated in addition to Lumia Camera.

However, many of you running certain Lumias noted that there was no update to Lumia Camera. As it turns out, there are now three 'Lumia Camera' apps although you cannot download all of them. The one updated this morning is for non-PureView and Legacy PureView Lumias while Lumia Camera Classic is for new PureView phones that are not yet on Denim.

Confused? So are we, so let's break it down.

Popular password manager, mSecure, has long been absent on Windows Phone but that's now a thing of the past. Finally it is here and to celebrate the launch it's available for the special price of $4.99 for a limited time. That's half off the regular price.

Having been available in desktop and modern app form for Windows for some time, the lack of a mobile client was a definite missing link. It's a case of better late than never, but it's an app we're thrilled to finally have in the Windows Phone Store.

In June, 2013 the Groupon-like site LivingSocial released an app for Windows Phone 8. Although not quite as popular as Groupon, LivingSocial (LivingSocial.com) did have its fans. However, that 1.0 version of the app never saw a single update and nearly two years later, the company has pulled the app from the Windows Phone Store.

It does not take too long to realize why, either. The app had apparently broken as many recent reviews reported "no network connection," making the LivingSocial app all but useless for its customers.

While we try to keep an eye out for the latest apps and games arriving in the Windows Phone Store some sneak in under our radar. Perfect Music is one of those titles.

Perfect Music is a feature rich, clean looking Windows Phone app for managing and playing your music files. The initial release was a little buggy and even up until the last batch of updates, I couldn't get the app to run on my Lumia 830. However, after a strong effort on the part of the developer the app is now running smoothly and is an impressive music player worth considering for your Windows Phone.

The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament begins today and for those who partake in March Madness there are a few Windows Phone apps in the Store to help you survive all the highs and lows of the games.

March Madness, for those not familiar, is one of the most popular sporting events around. Seventy-two teams will compete over the next few weeks to ultimately crown a NCAA Men's Basketball Champion.
