Few days ago I wrote about Duolingo, a fun app to learn new languages. The popular app features many languages, but incidentally Chinese is missing. If you'd want to learn Mandarin Chinese, fret not. Available for both Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices, HANYU.CO(hanyu.co) is a great app dedicated to the Chinese language.

Brought to you by Spiffy Ventures, the company that developed Effectual, HANYU.CO is a complete Mandarin Chinese language learning service with hundreds of useful lessons, guided learning, progress reporting, and useful tools like a dictionary and HSK vocabulary lists.

Even though many retailers got a jump on things this year, yesterday marked the traditional beginning of the Holiday Shopping Season. Deals will be popping up all over the place over the next few weeks and there are plenty of Windows Phone apps in the Store that can help you sort it all out.

We've plucked four of the top rated apps from this Collection for this week's roundup, plus a few that are outside the Collection.

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.
