26

Today, Slack (Slack.com) is launching their official app for Windows desktop users, including support for Windows 7 up through the Windows 10 preview. Slack is one of the fastest growing online collaboration services, and the firm boasts some impressive growth numbers since its inception.

If you have never heard of Slack, think of it as your own private app for chatrooms. It is a free service used for 'team communication' letting users create individual rooms with an unlimited amount of users. Confession: we use it on Windows Central and Mobile Nations every single day.

Password manager mSecure finally arrives on Windows Phone

76

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.

Windows 10 for phone supports USB Mass Storage, peripherals and hubs

222

Microsoft has shed more light on what USB scenarios the Windows 10 for Mobile SKU will support during their WinHEC conference in China.

Microsoft has added support for the new USB Type-C standard for Windows 10 for phone, which is not only smaller than Type-A but offers more power and functions. Apple – to cheers and jeers – announced that their new MacBook would sport this (and only this) port in lieu of their mag connector or standard USB port.

Now, it is clear that hardware vendors can not only build Windows Phones with USB Type-C but also enable various device class drivers.

LivingSocial latest company to pull their app from Windows Phone

171

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.

Strategy-RPG Devils & Demons coming to Windows Phone, 1941 Frozen Front gets weekend sale

30

German developer Handy Games has brought several solid games to Windows Phone, including Aces of the Luftwaffe, SPS Football, and 1941: Frozen Front. Even though most of those titles are free to play, they all look and play very nice. They also have a game called Stage Dive Legends that stars a rock-and-roll playing Confederate soldier, for some reason.

We now have another Handy Games title to look forward to, as the developer has informed us that Devils & Demons will soon be coming to Windows Phone. Devils & Demons is a fantasy-themed strategy role-playing game with highly detailed character art. And to celebrate the game's impending release, all in-app purchases in 1941: Frozen Front (also a strategy game) are half off until the end of the week.
