Pebble is arguably one of the most important smartwatch brands available to consumers these days. Indeed, the private company has been very successful in raising money for its new Pebble Time device, suggesting that the company has some legs.

However, Pebble and Windows Phones are two things that do not match. We detailed the story of the failed attempt at bringing the Pebble app to Windows Phone before so today we want to talk about that 'demo' app for notifications.

We will also tell you where you can get it and how it works in our hands-on video.

The 2015 Formula One racing season kicks off today in Australia with practice rounds for the Australian Grand Prix. While NASCAR is king in my neck of the woods, the open wheel racers have just as strong of a following globally.

In recognition of the start of the 2015 Formula One season, it was suggested by one our readers (thanks Harry) that we put together a roundup of the Windows Phone apps that will help you keep track of all the Formula One races. All of the apps listed will deliver news, standings, stats and racing schedules to your Windows Phone. The collection has a nice range of designs and some are also available for Windows 8 devices.

If you are tired of creating shopping lists the old fashion way with pen and paper, there is a relatively new Windows Phone app available the hopes to turn your head. We were tipped on Cart Nav and while I have to admit that I'm still one to grab a scrap piece of paper to create shopping lists, I was curious if Cart Nav was appealing enough to change my ways.

Cart Nav has support for multiple lists for specific stores and the layout isn't too cumbersome to navigate around. It does allow you to sort your items into categories and will let you price items and chart the cost history. You also have Cortana integration so you can add items by voice commands. Cart Nav definitely has potential, especially if the developer is successful at adding one of the planned features.

The Microsoft Band may be still in the consumer testing phase, but developers are sure pushing forward with ideas. One of those is evidenced in the app Pimp My Band, which keeps adding new and useful features to customize your favorite health tracker.

Today, version 1.8.1.0 has landed in the Store and although a small revision, it does add one cool feature: Bing image of the day. This addition is on top of this week's earlier update that added non-English language support.

Bank of America has followed through with the removal of their app from the Windows Phone and Windows Stores. In addition, the app itself no longer functions, which is a departure from the route Chase Bank is taking.

Bank of America announced at the end of January that they were discontinuing support for their Windows and Windows Phone apps due to low market penetration. As an alternative, the company has told customers that they can use the online web version on their mobile site.

Having been a staple on Windows Phone for some time now the popular music service, MixRadio, is entering into a state of transition as it goes from being a Microsoft property to one owned by Line. Having recently met with the team at Mobile World Congress we're able to confirm that the service will remain on Windows Phone, with development continuing into the future.

Oh, and a little hot off the press news: there's a private beta of a MixRadio app for iOS and Android currently in testing.
