Starting back in early June we kicked off the next 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 do I like to use in my daily life?
Finding the latest and greatest games can be a challenge — you tend to hear about trendy games more than you can play them. Today we're showing you why QuizUp and Threes! should be on your Windows Phone!
Technology is moving at a rapid clip, whether it is neuroscience, genetics, computers, space or general biology. The modern age of news and the internet can be a blur of information, overwhelming the senses. So how do you keep up?

The developer behind the adaptive fitness app BodBot is giving away 25,000 one-year subscriptions to BodBot Premium. Normally that'd cost you $120, but if you act fast you'll be able to get a full year for free!
When it comes to staying fit, there's no getting around the fact that it takes work, dedication, and inspiration. But how can a technology like your Windows Phone help? Wanting to exercise is one thing, but knowing what to do and how to do it is another.
