    Zinio

    Platform: WP8

    Price: Free app, magazine subscriptions vary

    While it is much different to read a magazine on a small display versus a paper copy, Zinio has a slick Text View feature that presents the text of the article in a single column view with the magazine layout at the top so you get a feel for the context of the article. There are some loading pauses as the magazine graphics load, but I am still enjoying the experience and broad library of magazines.

    Platform: WP8

    Price: Free

    I enjoy an ice cold frosty once in a while, and being from the Pacific Northwest where microbrews rule it is fun to discover and try new beer variations. Untappd is a beer discovery and social application that makes finding beers and sharing your experiences with friends an enjoyable experience.

    Platform: WP8

    Price: Free

    As we enter the summer season when people enjoy a beer or two at picnics, athletic events, and in the backyard after mowing, it is fun to track what beers you have tried and find new ones. I like to try new local beers when I travel and am enjoying the application.
