Microsoft has just launched a new app for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 that's designed to alert Xbox Music owners if there is some price cuts on albums and songs on the service. The app itself is called, appropriately enough, Microsoft Music Deals.

In a blog post, Microsoft said:

"Every Tuesday, 101 top albums can be yours for under $2 each with the Microsoft Music Deals app. You'll also be able to enjoy new, debut albums at only $.99 and timeless classics for just $1.99. Just choose the album you want in the Microsoft Music Deals app and it'll take you to the Xbox Music app in Windows 8/8.1 or Windows Phone 8/8.1 to download-to-own. The app will give you Live Tile updates and push notifications when new deals become available."

The app looks great and all we can say is it's about time! Grab the apps below and let us know what you think. Note: the app is US ONLY at this time
