Starting back in early June we kicked off the latest chapter of our Hidden Gems series. Done in cooperation with Microsoft, we highlighted under-appreciated and high-quality apps on Windows Phone and Windows 8.1. This time around we decided to add a theme: What apps does Daniel like to use in his daily life?

And what would Hidden Gems be without the chance to win amazing prizes? We had lots to give away each day, from FitBits to HP 7 Stream tablets to Amazon gift cards. There was truly something for everyone. We've kept you in suspense long enough. Let's see who the winners are!

Fitness Month is over here at Mobile Nations for another year. Health and fitness should be a year-round commitment, and it's never too late to start so if you missed out during February be sure to check back through the blogs and forums for content you may have missed. Hopefully you found some apps or tips to help you meet your fitness goals, or maybe even found some moral support in the community to help keep you motivated.

All throughout the month each site was giving away prizes for participation. We announced some winners mid-month, and below are the final results from the remaining contests from across Mobile Nations. If you were participating in the forums or on the blog contests, be sure to look below and see if you're a winner!

First, Windows Phone Central and Mobilicity would like to thank everyone who submitted an entry to the Nokia Lumia 710 Photo Contest. We had well over sixty entries and they all were worthy of selection.

Unfortunately, we had to narrow down the entries to three. First prize is a Nokia Lumia 710 with six months of service from Mobilicity. The runner up prizes are a $100 and $50 gift certificate to the WPCentral Accessory Store. It was a difficult decision but if you hit the break you can see all three winning entries.

When we first drew up the idea of the Nokia Lumia 710 Photo Contest, two things slipped our minds. First, a little event called the 2012 Mobile World Congress. Second, the vast number of quality entries we would receive!

Between Mobile World Congress and life in general, it took a lot longer than expected to judge all the outstanding entries we received. The good news is that we've identified our winner. The bad news is that you'll need to hit the break to see who won and who is our runner-up.

First, WPCentral and Mobile Nations would like to thank everyone who participated in the February Fitness Month event. We set out to show how your Windows Phone could help with your fitness goals and discovered some nice apps along the way. The WPCentral Forums discussion was full of comments on everyone's efforts to get and stay fit.

While fitness was the focus, there were a few incentives along the way. Three winners won gift certificates to the WPCentral Store as the month of February rolled along. Late last night, we randomly drew for our Grand Prize winner and two runner-up prize winners from all the comments posted in the Fitness Month discussions.

Our Grand Prize winner, who walks away with an Xbox 360 and Kinect, is onix7cv!

Our Nokia Luna Bluetooth Headset runner-up winner is willied and vincentw56 is the other runner-up winner who will receive a gift certificate to the WPCentral Store!

While February Fitness Month has drawn to a close, the challenge now becomes to keep up the fitness efforts. Good luck with it and again, thanks for participating in the Mobile Nations Fitness Month!
