91

Sprint's not leaving the single-line users out of the party — they're offering a new $60/month unlimited talk, text, and data plan. There's just one catch: You have to bring your own device, pay for one up front, or sign up for Sprint's Easy Pay monthly payments and upgrade plan. That said, if you're a Sprint customer (or are considering being one), that's still some substantial potential savings you're looking at.

QBracelet wrist battery is stylish, gives you half a charge for $100

39

There's something to be said for convenience and fashion in one, though we might have to question just how convenient the battery-as-a-bracelet QBracelet really is. The band splits in the middle, with a hinge on one side and your choice of a microUSB plug or Apple Lightning connector on the other. Simply pop it off your wrist and plug into the charge port on your phone to juice up. But how much juice are you looking at? Not enough, especially not for the $99 asking price. It's not a smartwatch — it's just a battery, for your wrist.

Woody Infinity, endless wakeboarding on your Windows Phone

25

Woody Infinity is an endless runner that is played out on a wakeboard. Towed by a jet ski, you are tasked with helping Woody navigate an endless obstacle course full of islands, docks, ski jumps and other objects bent on ruining Woody's day.

Game play is timed and you'll need to make it to various check points to keep the game going. There are bonus items along the course that will help Woody survive the courses and to keep the game interesting, there are a handful of missions to complete.

Unfortunately the game is not available for low-memory devices. However, for those with 1GB+ devices Woody Infinity isn't a bad option to consider if you're looking for a time waster of a game for your Windows Phone.
