      The new version of Flashlight is out!
      Flashlight is the brigtest, fastest and hottest app on the Windows Phone Marketplace:

      Flashlight is a real survival tool: very useful when:
      - power goes out
      - you are hiking or sailing at night
      - trying to read at night
      - trying to find something in the dark
      - in emergency situations

      What's new in Flashlight 8.1(is for WP8) and 3.8 (is for WP7)?
      - Compass
      - Shake to toggle
      - Runs even when screen turned off (lock screen)
      - Camera button to turn the light on and off
      - SOS mode for emergency situations

      - Battery discharge time (for WP8 phones)
      - Vibrate mode
      - Redesigned settings page
      - Wide tile support

      I hope you will enjoy this version! Wink

      I like the Hot Apps videos. They are quick and presented in a fresh way. Good job.

      If you are going to make a cast about educational apps for kids, please consider including Michael's Math Zoo.

      It is a game based on a card game designed by a famous board and card game designer Reiner Knizia.

      Awesome Lock app. AwesomeLock allows users to get the latest news, weather info and monitor your favorite stocks directly on the phone's lock screen. AwesomeLock is a great app to occupy the unused lock screen area with information customized by the user. The information in lock screen is automatically updated every 30 minutes.

      Windows Phone Store: just search for Awesome Lock (for some reason I'm not allowed tempest here the URL..)

      Kind regards
