Best Windows 10 apps this week
Four-hundred-thirty-five 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 could relax Microsoft Store application submission policies later this year according to a report by accepting Win32 applications and giving publishers freedom in regard to selecting commercialization options as well as using third-party content delivery networks for installations and updating.
The commercial preview of Microsoft Office Long Term Servicing Channel is now available.
