New apps and games
Fluent Terminal is not available on the Microsoft Store which means that you need to sideload it using the instructions on the project's GitHub page.

IP Network Scanner PRO displays the local and Internet IP address of the device it is run on and all available network connections.

ISO Image Creator Pro is a basic app for Windows 10 that creates ISO images from any DVD disc that you insert into the computer.
The app is simple to use: just insert a DVD into a drive, pick a target folder for the ISO image that you want to create, and hit the start button to create the image.
Mp3tag is a metadata editor for audio files that supports the MP3 format but also other audio formats such as FLAC or Opus.
The app supports multiple tag formats including ID3v2.x, iTunes MP4 and others.
While you can edit tags manually, you may also use integrated online music databases from sites such as Discogs or MusicBrainzs to apply tags and covert art to the music library.
The app supports options to rename audio files based on tags.
