Windows Phone Central Roundup
There are thousands and thousands of Windows Phone apps available over in the Windows Phone Store. To supplement our app and game reviews, our Windows Phone Central Roundups are designed to give quick snapshots of apps and games that we may not get to fully review. Most of these roundups follow a common theme such as Spy Apps, Photo Editing Apps, Target Games, and Ninja Games.
While we put together a small collection of these apps and games, our Roundups are also an opportunity for our readers to offer their recommendations on apps and games of the same genre.
Windows Phone Central Game Roundup: The Best Rated Games
The Windows Phone Store does a nice job of giving customers the ability of sorting the various games and apps by category and rankings. Rankings range from the Top Free, New+Rising, Top Paid and Best Rated.
This week's Windows Phone Central roundup focuses on the top five Best Rated games in the Windows Phone Store. These are five star rated games that should appeal to just about everyone and include a gambling and a racing game along with a few puzzle titles. All are enjoyable time wasters and you won't get much argument from us that they belong amongst the top rated Windows Phone games.
Windows Phone Central Roundup: Golf Apps and Games
Summer is in full swing and many are taking to the golf course to enjoy the sunshine and hit the tiny white ball all over the place. For others, sitting in the comfort air conditioning and picking up the sticks in the form of a video game may be more appealing.
Regardless of your preference, there is a small collection of golf apps and games in the Windows Phone Store that should appeal to most duffers (real or virtual). We have picked a handful of the higher rated offerings in this week's roundup. They include a few golfing games and apps that may help you navigate the course a little better. We also have an app that will keep you up to date on all the news and standings from the professional golfing ranks.
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Fast Food Apps
Fast food restaurants can be a convenient way to get a quick bite to eat while traveling or for those times you just don't feel like cooking at the house. There are a few Windows Phone apps designed to help you located these establishments and a few that will let you order and have take-away ready for you. Now that Fitness Month has past, these apps may come in handy if you are in the mood to cheat a little and enjoy a Big Mac or large Supreme Pizza every now and then.
We've tapped a small collection of these Windows Phone apps for this week's roundup. Some of which are official apps from the fast food restaurant while others are rather nice unofficial apps. Just keep in mind some of these apps have regional restrictions but the good news is that all the apps are available for 512MB devices.
Windows Phone Central App Roundup: UK National Rail Apps
Here in the UK we have a great rail network, spanning nationwide to cover not only England, but Wales and Scotland too. To help passengers out in 2014 with smartphones as their most prized possession, a number of Windows Phone apps have been released with support for National Rail train times, tickets and more. As there are a handful to choose from, we thought it best to form a quick roundup to get you started.

One major element of fitness is sleep. During the Mobile Nations Fitness Month we've touched on Windows Phone apps to help you with your workouts and diet but all that work goes to pot if you can't get a good night's sleep.
Sleep, in many respects, is mechanism we use to recharge our batteries, allow the body to rejuvenate and relax our minds. The apps in this week's fitness app roundup are some of the top rated Windows Phone sleep apps designed to help with our sleep habits. They offer soothing, calming sounds to help get us to sleep as well as tools to monitor our sleep habits.
Arguably the biggest sporting event in the world, the 2014 FIFA World Cup, kicked off today. Although some of my colleagues here from the US would shrug their shoulders at this ‘soccer’ extravaganza, the 20th edition of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil will see 32 countries participate from June 12 to July 13, 2014 for the greatest glory in the game.
While you’d be planning football parties with your friends or hit the pubs to watch the matches with other fans, you could use the following tips and the Windows Phone apps to follow the World Cup on your Windows Phone device. Whether it’s live updates, post-match reports, or the table standings, these are all the ways to get set for the World Cup apart from your usual sports apps like ESPN, Forza Football, or Goal.com.

Windows Phone Central Gaming Roundup: Match Three Styled Games
Match three styled games can be an entertaining and challenging way to pass the time with. The Windows Phone Store is full of these type games and they are the focus of this week’s Windows Phone Central Roundup.
We’ve all likely played or seen these styled games before where you are presented a playing field that is full of assorted items be it gems, jewels, bottle caps or other items. These games challenge you to swap the items around or connect them to create adjacent matches of three or more of the same items. Most of the match three games award you with bonus items if you create matches that go beyond the three of a kind variety.
This week we picked four of the top rated match three Windows Phone games to highlight and we’ll add a few honorable mentions in for good measure. If we’ve overlooked your favorite match three styled game, feel free to sound off in the comments below.
