Best Windows 10 apps this week

Two-hundred-and-thirty-three in a series. Welcome to this week's overview of the best apps, games and extensions released for Windows 10 on the Windows Store in the past seven days.

Windows 10's growth continued in May, but at a snail-like pace. The operating system increased its share by 0.5 percent, down from the 0.92 percent growth the month before that.
