Notable apps and games
CryptoBook is a portfolio application for cryptocurrency. It supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Ethereum and hundreds of other coins.
You can keep track of your coins by adding the amount that you own to the app. CryptoBook converts that to Euro, USD or Bitcoin automatically and keeps track of your coins over time.
CryptoBook supports major online wallets and trading platforms which you can integrate.
The app itself is free and without ads. Revenue is generated from affiliate links when users sign up for supported wallets or exchanges.
Microsoft promised full transparency in regards to the collecting of Telemetry data on Windows 10. It launched the Diagnostic Data Viewer application for the most recent Windows 10 Insider build.
The application displays all diagnostic events that Microsoft collects and analyzes on the device.
Diagnostic Data Viewer lists events in chronological order by default. It features a search option and filters to limit the listing.
Events are displayed in JSON format which makes them less accessible but still readable.
Note: this application won't install on earlier builds of Windows 10 including the Fall Creators Update version.
