We’re always on the look out for first-rate apps in the Windows Phone Store, and this week we found 5 fantastic new additions to add to your list of favorites.

What did we dig up? Well, we’ve got you covered if you’re looking for a good game to play while waiting out the April showers or an app that can help you get in shape for summer. Read on to find out which apps made the list, and be sure to give the ones that catch your eye a try.

Timelapse Studio

What is it: a time-lapse app

Why we love it: Timelapse Studio not only lets you create cool time-lapse sequences, but you can encode those sequences to MP4 videos on your phone as well. The app is easy to use and offers a number of features that let you control how your time-lapse comes out, such as focus, exposure compensation, white balance and more. You can trim the ends of the video, set a delayed start time, specify a capture completion point (like number of slides or timer), and even choose from a nice selection of filters.

What is it: a client app for Snapchat’s Discover

Why we love it: While not a client for Snapchat itself (sorry, guys), 6discover lets you explore Discover, a story service from Snapchat with a fresh look aimed at creatives. With stories from places such as MTV and National Geographic, you can catch up on news and more with a story list that refreshes every 24 hours. The app itself is easy and clean, and was developed by Rudy Huyn — so you know it’s worth the download.
