Another week here at Windows Phone Central and another Windows Phone weather app has caught our attention.  This week, it is the Windows Phone 8 weather app Weather Hound.

Weather Hound is a simple weather app that delivers the basics along with Live Tile and lockscreen support.  There is not a lot of flash to Weather Hound but it covers the core weather information rather nicely.

Microsoft has a fairly strong ecosystem when it comes to content. You’ve got Xbox Music and Video for your entertainment needs. However, there’s no solid reading ecosystem in place with them. Which is fine, because Amazon’s Kindle platform is tough to beat in both price and convenience. With Kindle you’re also buying into an ecosystem where your content is available on nearly any device you can think of – including Windows Phone. The app for Windows Phone was just updated today. Let’s check out what’s new.

JDB Facebook and Social Scout Windows Phone apps (both from JDB Pocketware) have been around for some time now.  The two apps helped Windows Phone users keep track of all their Facebook updates and explore the location related side of Facebook.

Although Windows Phone currently lacks proper stylus support, Mother Nature gave you an organic one, your finger. The next issue is needing a decent app that takes advantage of this tool and that’s where Papyrus comes in. Announced back at Nokia World last month, Papyrus is one of two note taking apps to come to Windows Phone, giving users ample choice for handwriting (the other was InNote).

Papyrus 1.0 is now live on the Store and the app is proving to be especially useful if you have a large-screened device like the Lumia 1520. The app features a rich assortment of features, including a Live Tile, pin to Start, different sized lines, color variation for pens, insertion of images and pinch to zoom. Unfortunately there is no backup to SkyDrive, though we suppose that could come out later.

Hey gamers, how’s your weekend going? While you are racing your cars, shooting the bad guys, or scoring goals, it’s great to control your experience on your Windows Phone. Few days back, Sam wrote about the official companion app for Grand Theft Auto V for Windows Phone and here we are with the official companion app for FIFA 14.

The app allows you to access your Football Club news, alerts, and friends, and keeps you up to date with your friends and send messages. You can purchase packs from the FUT Store and manage your FUT Squads by optimizing Chemistry, Formations, and Players.

The Microsoft Store application for Windows Phone was just updated to version 2.3. The change log describes improved customer experience in the catalog, but we're having a hard time agreeing. It’s still a little slow and confusing to use. For example, there’s no category for phones. You also need to use search to find Nokia Lumia devices.

The new version 2.3 now also displays ratings and reviews for products, as well as letting you add shortcuts to your favorite categories.

While the Windows Phone Store now includes an official Instagram app, we still have some very respectable third party offerings.  One of which is Rudy Huyn’s 6tag.

6tag received a minor update that takes the app to version 2.2.1.  There’s not a change log listed in the Windows Phone Store but, according to Rudy’s tweet, the update adds a hack to prevent your password from resetting while you are traveling.  We will guess there are a few minor bug fixes thrown in for good measure too.

If there is one thing we can all agree on is that Windows Phone has some talented developers. Especially when it comes to design, which is heavily inspired by Microsoft’s Modern UI principals.  

Today, I’m giving you an early look at a new calendar app headed to Windows Phone. Simply called ‘Cal’. The app is superbly clean and minimalist looking, really eye catching. Even though we already have some great calendar apps like Simple Calendar and Chronos Calendar, Cal ranks right up there in my opinion.

So head past the break to see my video tour and some early screenshots.
