Windows Central Hidden Gems begins on June 10th!

Yes, you heard that right! Hidden Gems is back, and it starts NOW. Be sure to watch the video above for the official kick off, and then keep reading for the full details. Watch that. Read this. Do it. Do Watch it now.

I hope you enjoyed the teaser video. As you have now figured out, we're taking things to a whole new level with a Week in the Life of Hidden Gems, made possible with the support of Microsoft. In case you're not familiar, Hidden Gems is our online editorial series where we spend a few weeks highlighting lesser known yet awesome apps for Windows. These apps are the Hidden Gems in the Windows Store, and they deserve their time in the spotlight. That's what Hidden Gems is all about. We're going all out on the production value with all of the content published, and we're making it a community event, complete with sweepstakes and awesome prizes to be won from Windows Central.

This time we're taking you behind the scenes of Windows Central and showing how I use Hidden Gems everyday

This event is our third installment of Hidden Gems. However, this time around we're going to take you behind the scenes of Windows Central as I show you how I use Hidden Gems apps in my everyday life. We're making video a BIG part of this series -- we even bought a Drone for extra must-watch video awesomeness -- with each day's article featuring a video you will definitely want to watch and share. June is a busy month for me, complete with a trip to Los Angeles to cover E3 (the big gaming conference) for Windows Central. Because of this you'll really get a chance to see Hidden Gems apps used in their true setting while getting a behind the scenes look at the life of a busy editor and tech blogger. I hope you join me for the journey. It is going to be a blast!

What to Expect:

Beginning on Wednesday, June 10th we will start publishing a new Hidden Gem feature every other weekday (think Monday / Wednesday / Friday). As you would expect in a week of life series, there are a total of seven Hidden Gems features.

With each feature article, we'll also be running sweepstakes to win prizes related to that day's theme. Participation is easy - you'll just need to login to Windows Central and leave a meaningful comment on the Hidden Gems feature for your chance to win.

For those of you who follow @windowscentral on Twitter, we'll also be taking the Hidden Gems conversation social. So if you are not yet following us, you should!

Spread the Word!

We love and enjoy running events like this that are fun for the community and help bring the awareness of the awesome apps available in the Windows Store to a broader audience.

A huge thanks goes to Microsoft for once again supporting us in running Hidden Gems. We are confident everyone, whether or not you are currently a Windows device owner, will enjoy the series. We are not expecting you to love everything we cover, but we are sure you will find something that you like.

Help us make this a fun series – be sure to join in and spread the word!
