Xbox SmartGlass remains in the top position in the top-free list. When it comes to the top-paid apps category, Temple Run: Brave is still at the top, while a new game called 4 Elements II Special Edition has snagged the third place rank.

Every week, we will feature one app or game that we will rank as the “top” Windows Store app for the week. It doesn’t mean that this app is better than every other app out there, it just means that this app should get your attention this week. The following week, we will showcase another great app, and so on. So here we go:


Fhotoroom, an app that has been available in the Windows Store for a while now, has received a new update recently adding a few new cool features to it. For those unaware, Fhotoroom is a “community award winning” photo app that was on the Windows Phone platform. “Fhotoroom Touch is a photo sharing network and photo editor. Our photo sharing network allows users to show off their photos with our very fast growing community with over 1.5 millions windows phone users. You can also share your beautiful photos on flickr, facebook or twitter all at once with a single click,” the app description reads.

So what’s new in this new update? Fhotoroom now allows for social integration, allowing users to upload, like, comment, and browse uploads by providing an integration between the app and the Fhotoroom website. There are also cool editing additions to the app, allowing users to adjust exposure, luminosity, channel histogram, and color via a new filter called “Correction” filter.

This app already features over 76 powerful image editing, photo styles, light leaks, and frames, and best of all it is a free app for Windows 8 and Windows RT. Hit the download link below to snag the app and stay tuned for next week’s Windows Store Sunday post.
