Best Windows 10 apps this week

Four-hundred-twenty-eight 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 released build 21327 for Windows 10 to Insider devices this week; the new build debuts a new look for the news and interests feed widget that Microsoft introduced in preview builds some time ago. The new build comes with a new font and several system icons have been updated as well.
