Data Sense is a vital Windows Phone 8.1 tool for many who like to keep track of how much data their phone consumes each month. Even more, the gizmo gives users the ability to restrict background data when roaming, set data limits, and see which apps grabs the most data.

Earlier this week, Microsoft released a companion app for Data Sense called IE Data Savings. The app taps into Data Sense but gives users a more detailed analysis of their Internet Explorer web usage. The app is free, and it should work all phones with the Windows Phone 8.1 OS installed.

Back in Berlin, Germany a few weeks ago during Microsoft's big reveal, many people noticed the Flipboard app for Windows Phone was preloaded on a the new Lumia 730 and Lumia 830 display phones. I won't get into the politics of what happened, but you can pretty much guess that Flipboard was not announced that day. Instead, it is still Coming Soon™.

This morning though, a link for the app has been spotted on the Store. As you may have learned from the headline, you cannot yet download it, making this likely blocked by the developers until they are ready to announce it, or it is a private beta, meant for internal testing.
