Digitally Imported, Foundbite, NBA Game Time and more are your app highlights of the week

It’s been a fairly quiet week in terms of breaking news, but the world of Windows Phone doesn’t stop. We’ve got a handful of great apps to highlight for you this week. This is our second time rounding up noteworthy apps that are new to the store or current apps that received a substantial update. We’re going to be calling this column our Weekly App Highlights. Again, this is to make sure you didn’t miss out on any cool new apps in the Store. We’re doing this for you, so be sure to leave us feedback on what you want. Now, without further ado, let’s check out the apps for the week.

New

TipRanks –Here’s an app that comes from the AppCampus program. TipRanks started as a web service that is now targeting Window Phone as their first platform for a mobile app. TipRanks gives you financial advice by ranking market analysts. You can view a profile on a given analyst to see how their predictions in the past have paid off. You'll also get opinions on whether or not to buy a given stock. It's a very clever app for anyone dealing with the stock market. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store or use the QR code below.

Digitally Imported –It’s finally here. One of the most popular electronic dance music streaming services, Digitally Imported, is officially here on Windows Phone. We've had Beem, but now we're getting a little validation for the platform by picking up another official app. Digitally Imported is free and offers users a wide selection of stations for your enjoyment. You can get a premium subscription to unlock higher quality streams and an ad-free listening experience. Grab it in the Windows Phone Store or use the QR code below.

InNote –Announced a little over two weeks ago at Nokia World, InNote is a new note taking application for Window Phone users. While it'll really shine on the Lumia 1520's display, you can download it now. InNote offers the ability for handwritten notes in addition to manual entry with the keyboard. It’s a great app and worth checking out in the Windows Phone Store.

Foundbite –Brand new to the Windows Phone Store. Foundbite is a social network that allows user to capture sound bites while taking photos. It creates works of art that are a little more immersive than just your regular photos. This is an app that’s exclusive to our platform, so make sure you grab it in the Windows Phone Store.

Updated

Viber –Here’s a messaging app that was updated this week. Viber is a messaging application that’s been out for quite some time. This recent update is notable for bringing a brand new UI. We’re also getting some big improvements for notifications and Live tile support. Want to try out Viber? Grab it in the Windows Phone Store.

NBA Game Time –It’s about time. NBA Game Time has been updated the past few seasons around the time that the NBA playoffs start up. Now we’re getting a substantial update at the start of the NBA season. Basketball fans will enjoy the ability to now watch live games. That’s of course assuming they’re League Pass subscribers. Like the NBA and Windows Phone? Then grab Game Time in the Windows Phone Store.

Beta

App Social Beta –This is an app that anyone with a Nokia phone should check out. App Social as you know, is a social network that enables users to discover new apps. This is the latest beta that gives you a ton of new features inside a slightly revamped UI. Want it? Go to the Windows Phone Store.

Games

The Machine –AppCampus is a wonderful program that’s notable for bringing great apps (that are exclusive) to our platform. SongArc is one game that’s recently graduated from the program, but you can now add The Machine to that list. The Machine is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 users. The premise is an action-puzzler that has a touch of physics. It’s all wrapped in a monochrome aesthetic. Just take our word for it and download this free game from the Windows Phone Store.

And that ladies and gentleman are your app (and game) highlights for the week. Again, we’re going to be tweaking this column based on your feedback. So let us know what you want to see. Till next week.

  • Can't download NBA game time!! :(
  • Same here on L920
  • I have it on my L920. So wait for a few minutes or it may not be available on your country/region.?
  • I switched my country/region to the UK, downloaded it, then switched back to the US. Worked perfectly.
  • Thank you!!!
  • Still waiting on vine and instagram.....i like testing new apps
  • Viber, better notifications? Really?
  • Actually, it works quite well. For now. It's a bit slow to open when I tap a toast but that's probably due to my device's 512 MB of RAM. It opens much faster on my bf's 920. I haven't had any problems with the notifications in the past day or two. As a contrast, WhatsApp started giving me the pain in the butt... :S
  • I want Vivino
  • Foundbite...for the win! Windows Phone exclusive and unique!
  • Cant download NBA Gametime on Lumia 920 :'(

  • Just change your settings for region to UK (restart the phone) and download it from the now UK store. Then just swith back to you desired region.    
  • Thanks for the tip.
  • Do more of these. Shows off the platform, as it should. also, I can't intstall NBA Game Time either.
  • Maybe I shouldn't be this surprised, but I sure am when I still see how much support WP7 is recieving.
  • Digitally Imported app on WP8 has to be one of my more recent fav releases.. its a shame the Windows 8 app no longer works properly on 8.1 (launches then closes 90% of the time) as that was a great app although not an official release.. one of the guys on DI.FM said via an email that someone might have picked up the development so here's hoping as it very quickly became one of my favourites.
  • Slow news day :/
  • WOOT NBA game time WORKS just change your region to UK then restart and download switch back and re-open app works perfect!! THANKS TO restaurant-feed I noticed it on his post VERY COOL
  • Just installed FoundBite, Appsocial, and Nimbuzz. Updated Viber. I hope AppSocial won't be exclusive for Nokia phones but for any Windows Phone at least.
  • still can't download the NBA game time app, is it cuz I'm running 7.5 or because I'm in the U.S.? Or cuz its a Samsung focus S, or cuz I'm on at&t??? Any help? I need this app in my life! It will jeep me from jumping ship. That Note3 is so calling my name!!!
