When it comes to tracking our fitness, we’re big fans of the Fitbit family of trackers and the overall ecosystem. Unfortunately, they don’t have an official app on Windows Phone, but do have on for Windows 8 and have a desktop app to sync with you tracker.

However, Windows Phone does have a nice set of third-party apps that at least let you view your data. One of our favorites, Fitbit Tracker, just received an update. Let’s check it out.

It's a great way to immerse yourself.

It’s been a few days since we’ve mentioned anything about Instagram and Windows Phone, so we figured we would update you on one of the most anticipated projects: 6tagram from developer Rudy Huyn.

Starting last Friday, the app went into private beta with a few thousand lucky users getting early access to hunt down and find bugs. Since then, the app has had a steady stream of updates (sometimes two a day) as Rudy has added new features and refined any usability issues.

The app is planned, roughly, for a release next week though that’s not a guarantee. Still, at the rate at which the app is progressing and the positive feedback so far, we’re confident that the app will be making a lot of people happy.

Ever imagine being a vigilante? You throw on a cape, some tights, and run out the door to serve the people! Sound exciting? Oh well, that isn’t going to happen. You can do the second closest thing though, you can take action and help to improve the future of Xbox Live.

Microsoft has just announced a new beta which will be known as “Xbox Enforcement United” (I know, it sounds epic). The new project calls upon Xbox Live members to become involved within the community and help create a “fun, fair, and safer place for everyone”.
