Best Windows apps this week

Five-hundred-and-eighty in a series. Welcome to this week's overview of the best apps, games and extensions released for Windows 10 and 11 on the Microsoft Store and elsewhere in the past seven days.

The Windows 11 Canary build number made a jump this week to version 27547. It is not an unusual step and not a Windows 12 confirmation. This month, Microsoft will release Moment 5 update for Windows 11 to the release preview.

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.

The following list is a selection of the best deals. Make sure you check out the Store for all offers.

Some apps are discounted for more than one week. Only new apps and games are listed below. Check out the previous post in the series for past offers that may still be valid.
