New Windows apps and games
ActionLogger is a new life tracking application for Windows. It may be used to manage goals and plans, and log other activity that is happening.
It supports different categories, goals that may be fine-tuned, e.g. to work on something for x minutes per day, and reports that you may look at.
Microsoft released Application Inspector on the company's GitHub website. The program analyses source code to identify "well-known features and other interesting characteristics of source code to aid in determining what the software is or what it does".
