Earlier this week Microsoft launched an addition to it’s Marketplace for Windows Phone called Marketplace Extra.
Here is what Microsoft posted on their blog:
Ever have the nagging feeling you’re missing out on some great overlooked app or game in Marketplace?
Or maybe Windows Phone is your first smartphone, and you’re a little unsure what to download first.
I think we’ve all felt that way from time to time. That’s why we created Marketplace Extra, a new feature of the Windows Phone website dedicated to helping you discover handy, fun, and other pinworthy apps and games.
Marketplace, of course, already comes equipped with useful automated tools for sorting and slicing our fast-growing app catalog. Marketplace Extra adds the human touch: Each month a team of writers and editors—me included—will comb Marketplace for great apps and games to feature. We’ll also spotlight app news, reviews, videos, and more. So check out Marketplace Extra and tell us what you think!
I think this is a really great idea – well done Microsoft!
Have you got a Windows Phone and have you used this new service? Let us know what you think.
