A few weeks back we noted the release of the app Analog Clock Tile for devices running Windows Phone 8.1. The updated OS allows Tiles to be updated every minute, making "clock Tiles" like Clock Hub or TimeMe a go on the platform. No worries as to battery life, as Microsoft made sure such apps have a negligible impact.

Version 1.2 just went live in the Store, and it now has a few new features. For one, there are four new clock faces to choose from, including blocky digital, analog with numbers and one with just text.

VoiceWake Lite is a new app for those running Windows Phone 8.1 and who also have Cortana available to them. That means mostly people in the US, unless you used a region-hack to enable Microsoft’s new voice-assistant. The app has one singular purpose: wake up your PC using ‘Wake On LAN’. That’s useful for a number of reasons, including turning your PC on when 2,000 miles away, and we’re sure you have your ideas too.

Not sure what Wake On LAN is for? Read the Wiki history right here. Hint: it's not to turn your PC on when in the same room. 

The app is simple enough to use and the ‘lite’ feature, implies a non-ad-supported version is on the way too.  More on that below.
