We frequently report about Microsoft and their latest developments, including XBox, Azure, Windows 8, Windows Phone and everything Microsoft is working on.
There are many of us who want the ultimate dream home, and some of those who can actually afford it. For the in-between group, various home design apps exist on Windows 10. Live Home 3D Pro is one worthy of a peek.
In an effort to keep Microsoft more transparent than ever, the company is letting users know what data it collects on them, and how it uses it. On Windows 10, a new app called the Diagnostic Data Viewer lets you see what they see.
As Bitcoin and other cyrptocurruencies become popular across the world, managing them can be cumbersome. There are various wallets and programs out there, but Windows 10 lacks any single great apps for it. Now, CryptoBook aims to help.
CryptoBook is a free Windows 10 app made by developer Patrick Mortara, and its a simple and well developed app to manage your cryptocurencies. Now, Bitcoin and other currencies can be managed in a single Windows 10 app.
With CrypotoBook, users are able to manage their Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies in a single app. It uses Cryptocompare.com’s API to get current prices and information, and has the ability to get more with the proper API’s plugged into the app.
This app makes it simple to manage such currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum Classic, and many others in a single app. This means not having to jump across various websites and programs, and makes it possible in one app.
Nice Solid Release
I gave this one a try, since I have Bitcoin cash around, and wanted a simple way to manage it. It’s a 86.57 MB download, and it was a simple installation on my Windows machine. It loaded quickly, and let me input my amounts of Bitcoin owned and it worked right out of the gate.
The app itself is a simple and easy to use Cryptocurrency app, and it keeps all of your holdings in a single app. It’s totally free, but has in-app purchases if you want additional features. Overall, its an app I’ll keep on my desktop, and a worthy app.
Try getting CryptoBook for yourself on the Windows Store. It’s free, and if you own any of these new currencies, it’s a nice download.
Microsoft has often kept its core Windows 10 apps to its own download system, and not led users to a way to download them on their own, except for mobile devices. Now, users with Windows 10 can download them via the Windows Store.
The latest addition by Microsoft makes a big shift for the company, as it allows users to download its major Office apps directly via the store. They are not listed in preview mode anymore, and can be downloaded starting today.
What Apps Are Available?
Starting today, users are able to download Word 2016, Excel 2016, PowerPoint 2016, Access 2016, Outlook 2016, and Publisher 2016 Apps via the Windows Store. This is a major shift for the company and makes these apps easier to enjoy for users.
These apps will require the user to have a Office 365 subscription, and that is the major money maker for Microsoft in recent years. The renewing subscriptions keep users using the core apps, but this transition to downloadable apps makes the apps easier to get.
Is It For You?
So, you might be wondering if these apps via the Windows Store are for you, and whether it makes sense to download them via the store. From a simplicity and security standpoint, the apps will be frequently updated by Microsoft, and the simpleness of a click download is awesome.
But, if you are a long-term Microsoft and Windows user, the thought of the apps being in the store might be just too easy. Some like the web installs or other installation methods. I’ve downloaded a few via the store, and even as an advanced user found it easy and great.
You can download these Windows 10 Office apps starting today. If you subscribe to Office 365, go grab them if you need them, and be productive.
As the new year dawns upon us, the idea of staying healthy and losing weight makes sense. A new Fitbit coach app has arrived via the Windows Store, and it is aimed to be the fitness app on Windows 10.
