Announcing 12 Days of Hidden Gems for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone!
The Holiday season is upon us and at Windows Central we're celebrating with a fresh season of "Hidden Gems", highlighting new and cool apps on Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone.
12 Days of Hidden Gems, presented by Microsoft, will showcase some amazing apps in the scenarios that matter most to you, such as Health and Fitness, Smart Living, Travel and Entertainment, while giving the community a chance to win some awesome prizes!! We’ll also be exploring the Internet of Things in depth, bringing attention to connected devices and wearables that deliver an exceptional experience with Windows devices.
Beginning Monday, December 15th and running until the end of the year, we'll publish a series of 12 Hidden Gems feature articles. And in the spirit of holiday giving, as part of the 12 Days of Hidden Gems, we'll also run a series of 12 sweepstakes, with $1,000 in prizes available to be won each day. The prizes will be relevant to the Hidden Gem(s) of the day, which means there is an awesome mix of items up for grabs. For information on how to enter the sweepstakes, read this article. You can view the official sweepstakes rules, here.

We really enjoy running events like this that are fun for our community of fans and also help spread the awareness of Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone apps to a broader audience. Big thanks to Microsoft for the sponsorship – without their support we wouldn't be able to wind down 2014 with an awesome feature like the 12 Days of Hidden Gems. We are confident we can deliver an exciting and unique series for you, our core audience. We are not expecting you to love everything we cover, but we are sure that you'll find something to like.
Help us make this a fun series – be sure to join in and spread the word!
