Nova Bacon a Windows Phone game full of porkbellies, aliens and farm tractors

29

Nova Bacon is an arcade styled Windows Phone game where you are in charge of supplying the pork products (a.k.a. pigs) for an outer space fly-thru restaurant. You'll snatch up wayward pigs as they roam the earth and protect them from attempts by humans to save them from slaughter as you haul them to your restaurant in outer space.

Available for low-memory devices, Nova Bacon is another Microsoft Garage project and isn't a terrible game to pass the time with. It could use a little fine-tuning as game play does feel a little drawn out.

Microsoft Band Sync app for Windows desktop finally removes 'Pro' OS limitation

55

Last week, Microsoft not only released the Microsoft Band but some software for it as well. Besides the phone apps, Microsoft also has a desktop app for Mac and Windows. The software lets you sync your Band to the cloud in addition to updating the firmware, if, for whatever reason, you do not have your phone nearby.

Version 1.3.1106.2 is now sitting on Microsoft's site, and there is at least one fix we are aware of the arbitrary limitation of only installing the app to Windows 8 or 8.1 Pro computers. Now, you can install it to any PC.

Torrex Surface Edition takes torrents to your tablet

53

BitTorrent doesn't exactly have the best reputation in the mainstream due to its widespread usage for pirating software and media. However, it can be a useful tool for sharing content and downloading large files quickly, mainly when you are on the go with your Surface or other Windows tablet. With Torrex Surface Edition, it doesn't matter if you have a tablet running the full version of Windows 8 or an RT-powered tablet. You can get touch-friendly torrenting anywhere you go.

Finebits OU, the developers of Torrex Surface Edition, describe it as a "full-featured BitTorrent client" for Windows 8. They aren't kidding.
