New Windows apps and games
Copyless for Microsoft Edge ($0.99)
This browser extension for Microsoft Edge improves the copying process by automatically copying selected content to the clipboard.
It may be worth the money if you copy a lot of content in Edge and want to optimize the process.
Microsoft Edge Insider (not available right now)
This is an official Microsoft application for Microsoft Edge Insiders. It offers news about new features, known issues, and problems that Microsoft, fixed among other things.
The extension is designed specifically for upcoming Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based) Insider build channels (Canary, Dev, and Beta).
The first public preview version is expected to be released soon.
The official Pinterest application for Windows 10 has arrived. The app is actually a Progressive Web Application (similarly to Twitter's PWA) but it does not really offer much when compared to the web-based version of Pinterest.
The app requires a Pinterest account just like the web version does.
It lacks Windows 10 specific features such as Live Tiles support, offline mode, or Jump List support.
Twitter PWA switched to Google Translate for translations (previously used Bing Translate).
