CEF Photos is a Windows Phone reference app that delivers over 1,100 photos of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during World War I. While Great Britain and the United States often took center stage, 620,000 men and women of the CEF served during the First World War. The mostly volunteer force participated in several major battles across the European theatre and carried a strong reputation as being an effective military formation.
CEF Photos may not appeal to everyone but with the First World War passing its 100-year anniversary, the app may present a different perspective on things to history buffs.

The app was recently updated to version 2.2 and adds a handful of new calculators to the toolbox, OneDrive integration and more.
Please note this update only applies to the paid version of Calculator Toolbox. The free, ad-supported version will eventually see the update but will lack premium features such as OneDrive integration and Excel report generation.
Now, version 1.1 is live in the Store and with it a few fixes, some cleaning up of the design and a new transparent tile option (that is right, the choice is yours).
There's a new update for OneDrive on Windows Phone, and they've dubbed this one to be version 18.104.22.168. The last update (v 4.2) brought improvements to the downloading experience for the OneDrive app, but this one? We're not sure.
Update: It appears that access to Facebook is back up for both the web and the Windows Phone apps. You are now free to carry on with your day.
It appears that Facebook's newest feature is "being offline". Attempts to visit the social network right now are being thwarted by a lack of stuff to load, from a "Sorry, there was an error" or "We're having trouble getting data" alerts with no new content in Windows Phone app to an apology of "Sorry, something went wrong" in browsers. Let us know, is Facebook down for you too?
The PayPal app for Windows Phone has not been on our radar since a year ago in 2013, but today a major 4.0 update is going out and with it comes a new UI. Rather, this new UI is the same as found on Android and iOS, making the Windows Phone on parity with those platforms.
In terms of features, you still get the usual fare, including managing your account, push notifications, send or request money and the increasingly more relevant Local feature, which lets you visit local shops that take PayPal as a form of payment.

Fortunately, Nokia Camera provides framing grids that you can activate within the settings. We'll teach you how to turn them on and how you can use them to improve your photos.
The Windows Phone Store has a nice selection of navigational apps that can help you get around town or get across the country. NAVIGON and HERE Drive+ are two of the more popular options available on Store shelves. Along with a full host of features, these two mapping apps take advantage of downloadable maps to help minimize your dependency on data while traveling.
I recently took a short jump out of town and decided to re-visit both these apps to see if one stood heads and shoulders above the other. I used both apps periodically on the round trip journey, as well as around town while at my destination. While we've looked at these two navigation apps before, having logged 1,300 miles on my trip I figured it was worth taking another look at things.
Atmosphere Weather is one of a handful of top weather apps for Windows Phone that many of you enjoy. Although not much has happened in the few weeks since we introduced it, much work is occurring in the background.
Today, developer Kevin Smith is releasing version 1.3 of the stylish and Modern weather app, and it has with it a hefty and noteworthy changelog. Let's see what's new.
This morning, popular list-making app Wunderlist released their long awaited version 3, with over 60 improvements onboard. The top-rated app has a large presence on Apple's iOS and Google's Android, and there is even a version for Amazon's Kindle. Wunderlist did have an app for Windows Phone, but like some other apps (cough, IMDB, cough) it has withered and died.
Now, the company has made it official that Wunderlist 3 is heading to the Windows ecosystem, and it looks to be a universal app.
A newly revealed service called WPbeta.me claims that it will make beta testing apps for Windows Phone developers easier by creating a custom landing page that can be shared with either private or public testers.
While usually I report on some terrific apps on the Windows Phone Store (and some not-so-good ones too) here on Windows Phone Central, this post is different. Today I share my first Windows Phone app with the readers - the community that's more aware and usually critical, in a useful way.
On a daily basis, we look up details of a national highway in India, a region associated with a license plate number, or MICR code of your bank branch. A couple of months ago, I set out to build a one-stop app where one could find all these 'codes of India', and hence the name, INcode.
Thomas Nigro has shared some details covering the VLC app for Windows (and Windows Phone) on his personal blog. The developer notes how it has been decided for the team to drop supported for Windows 8 (and keep building for Windows 8.1), really focusing on optimization and getting everything neatly tied together cross-platform..
Zomato is a popular restaurant finder Windows Phone app that gives you recommendations for restaurants in your area and lets you look at menus, pictures, contact info, and directions. Available in over forty cities across the United Kingdom, India, Brazil, the UAE, New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, Turkey, Portugal, the Philippines, Qatar, and Sri Lanka, the Windows Phone app was recently updated to version 5 with a complete design and user experience refresh.
After the major refresh, the app continues to get quick updates, and has just received the fourth update in three months. The app has now been updated to version 22.214.171.124, and brings in some new features. The app's also lighter, and definitely faster (So, yeah, I've pre-empted a lot of comments!) across the board.
