One of the great customizations that Windows Phone 8.1 brings to the table is the ability to use transparent tiles and Start Screen backgrounds. OneStart is a Windows Phone 8.1 app that taps into this feature and delivers a nice range of Start Screen background options.

From creating a colorful crystal pattern to slightly blurring a photo to simply choosing a solid accent color, OneStart makes a nice first impression.

Newegg for Windows Phone has been updated to support Canada. Newegg is one of the most popular online shopping portals for electronics. You'll probably find yourself buying a part or two from Newegg if you're building a PC. From time to time it's also a great site for finding deals on Windows Phones.

How to set up Apps Corner on Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1

Apps Corner is one of the new features that Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 brings. In a nutshell, it lets you set up a custom Start screen on your device, where you can share only the apps you choose with the people you let use your phone. This is great for showing off your phone, while hiding private information from emails, calendar, and photos. This is also handy in setting up phones for employees, students, or coworkers, by exporting your Apps Corner settings from your phone and importing it onto other phones.
