Best Windows 10 apps this week

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

Microsoft's latest feature update for Windows 10, Windows 10 version 2004, has quite a few bugs. The company announced plans to change the names of the Windows Insider channels from "ring" to "channel" to better reflect the expected release quality of each channel.

As always, if I've missed an app or game that has been released this week that you believe is particularly good, let me know in the comments below or notify me via email.
