The best laid plans often fall by the wayside. You may start off with the intension of keep your files neatly organized so you know where everything is, but how long before you end up with folders called ‘stuff’, ‘misc’ and ‘to sort’ littering your desktop?

With DropIt, all of this could come to an end as your file organisation can be taken care of for you. Now rather than having to drag and drop file after file into suitable folders, you can define rules that sort them for you automatically. Read on to see how this tool could help you out.

Personally I’m a fitness freak and a statistics aficionado and this is a story of how I combined both got motivated and started to train for my first marathon using the most powerful Runtastic app on my windows phone.

Ever since I watched Samuel Wanjiru touching the finish line to break the world record in the London marathon, I’ve always wanted to run a marathon and many a times I’ve started my training but a week after that both my energy and motivation peters out into empty vacuous dreams. Last month out of sheer coincidence when I began my training again, I came across Runtastic and there is no looking back after that.

I hold the opinion that everyone needs a simple diary on them at all times. A diary gives the owner the ability to almost document their own lives and in turn allow them to look back at the past. Not only does this serve as a great recollection, but it generally allows people to be more organised in everyday life. Alas, the day’s of written diaries have now ended for me and I now use digital equivalents.

These are much cheaper and if you forget your pen, it doesn’t matter. Joking aside, a digital diary is much easier to use and allows to do far more at a much quicker rate. However, there are so many diary apps out there that it’s hard to pick one perfectly suited for you. One which I discovered a few weeks ago was Diary Buddy. Since that point I’ve replaced my old diary application and started to use Diary Buddy exclusively.

Over the past few weeks, the writers here at Windows.AppStorm have been sharing the apps that they have found to be essential while writing. It’s been very interesting to see how my fellow writers work as well as the diverse range of apps that they use. Now it’s time for me to share my list of apps that I couldn’t write without.

It’s been 7 years since the inception of Twitter with Jack Dorsey’s first tweet. Twitter has evolved and grown considerably over time to become the third largest social networking platform just below Facebook and Google + in terms of numbers.

Twitter has undergone lots of changes for better during these years in its user interface, geographic trending topics, the way replies and retweets were made and most importantly its powerful search feature but still avid users like me feel a lacuna and would always ask for more subtle improvements. This is where all the Third party applications that depend on Twitter’s API comes to the rescue. One Such Application that we are going to explore today is Follorep, which helps you to take control of the crux of a Twitter account, your Fans.

Social networks are extremely prevalent in today’s society. You’d probably find it hard to find one person who didn’t have a prominent presence on at least one. However, the market is dominated by the big networks such as Facebook and Twitter. While in this article I will cover these, the big focus will on social networks which are a little less known.

The Windows Phone network gives users a humongous amount of choice so not exploring different options would just be frivolous. Read on to find out about the networks I recommend!

These days we are all swamped in digital images. Our camera and smartphone grab these pictures and they are stored on our computers and, hopefully, backed up somewhere safe because these little vignettes can be irreplaceable. In fact, I recommend at least two backups — one local on a home server or external drive and one off-site in someplace like CrashPlan (my choice) or Carbonite.

The word of the day is seldom. It seldom happens that a game is outshone by its successor. It seldom happens that a virtual world feels so real that when your stay in it ends, you relive it in your dreams, you reconstruct it from the mappings of the place in your mind. It seldom happens that you fall in love with virtual characters, develop emotional bonds with pieces of codes and treat them as your companions in a journey. Seldom.

BioShock Infinite is that seldom, it is that seldom which has reincarnated how games are perceived, how games are projected and how they should be in the years to come. It is a 10/10 and, without any more seldom, let me show you why this can be 2013’s Game of the Year.

Word games are not for everyone. But if you like word games, I found a fun but challenging game that will make your brain spin called Wordament.

Wordament is a designed by Microsoft Studios and is one of their finest works and I absolutely loved playing it. The game is simply amazing and is really is one of a kind. I might be over selling it but when you play it, I’m sure most of you will feel the same way. Now, let me give you a quick gist of what the game is all about.
