With almost 3,000 reviews, Movie Maker 8.1 nails down a 4.5 Star rating in the Windows Phone Store, which is spot on. The video editing app normally runs $.99 (with a trial version available) but through the myAppFree deal, you can pick up Movie Maker 8.1 free. If you like shooting video with your Windows Phone, Movie Maker 8.1 is a must have app.

Special Note: As an added bonus, the first 1,000 users can use the code "myappfree" and receive five free coins that can be used to play slots for a chance at getting a plugin for free. Here's how to redeem your code.

  • Under the three-dot menu choose "External Plugins"
  • Pick the plugin you want and tap the "Go to Store" link
  • Choose "Unlock Code" as the payment option and enter "myappfree"

From there you can go to the "Do you feel lucky?" option of buying the plugin where you play the slots in hopes of getting the plugin free.

The Windows Phone Store listing for Movie Maker 8.1 is already reflecting the deal but it may take a little while longer before the deal to appear in the myAppFree app. Oh and the code for the five free coins is active as well.
