    Remote 4 Roku Free

    Platform: Windows Phone 8

    Price: Free

    I cut the cable over a year ago and enjoy Internet video content on my TVs. The main device I use is a Roku box, but often have trouble finding the remote. Remote 4 Roku now gives me the ability to control my Roku from my phone.

    The one improvement I would like to see is the ability to have a library of Rokus since I have one in my rec room, kitchen, and bedroom.

    My Trips

    Platform: Windows Phone 8

    Price: $1.99

    I travel about once a month for work and find the TripIt service to be invaluable. I have gotten enough in flight fees credited back to pay for years of TripIt Pro. The official Windows Phone app is not very good though, but thankfully there is a great alternative in My Trips.

    You can leave the paper behind and view all aspects of your trip itinerary with My Trips.
