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!

- Thomas De Long
TYLT Energi battery backpacks
GoPro Here3 White action cameras

HP Stream 7 Windows 8.1 tablets

Congratulations to all the winners! We'll be in touch via email over the next few days to get your prizes sorted.
We hope you have enjoyed this chapter in our Hidden Gems series. A big shout out goes to Microsoft and the developers of the apps who worked with Windows Central to make this happen and all the people behind the scenes who helped create this presentation. And a BIG thank all of you for jumping in on comments, giving feedback and sharing these Gems with everyone! Windows and Windows Phone has a lot to offer, and it was our goal to demonstrate that in a clear and professional manner.
Look for more of our Hidden Gems in the future!
