This week, Windows Phone Radio welcomes Michael Stroh, who's writing a weekly post called "Pinworthy" highlighting some of the coolest apps to hit the Marketplace each week.

Stroh's pinworthy for this week includes:

  • Skeleton Key lets you store your passwords securely on your phone. You still have to create and remember a master password, of course. But the app serves as a pocket vault for the rest of your secrets.

    Zune Marketplace, Price: $1.99 + free trial.

  • Droplets Free is a visually lush puzzle game that consists of a bunch of water beads arranged on a board. The goal is to fling them at each other until there's just one left. The rules are simple. You can't fling droplets off the board. You also can't fling one at its immediate neighbor. So the trick is determining the correct order to eliminate the drops--and finishing your flicking before the clock runs out.

    Zune Marketplace, Free.

  • Marketplace Search!'s specialty is really search. When you open the app, all you see is a search box. There're no "top" lists, categories, or other options for random browsing. Still what Marketplace Search! does, it does well. Search results are grouped by category--apps, artists, albums, etc.--which you browse by flicking left or right. Another plus: You see results for podcasts, too. And if you pick up Melting Bot Software's companion Podcasts! app, you can stream or download them straight to your phone.

    Zune Marketplace, Free.

  • Bye Bye Brain Lite you command a group of quirky, weapon-wielding horde survivors. There's The Spanker, a kid with a cricket bat, The Nerd, The Cleaner, The Fuzz (a cop, natch), and my favorite, The Colonel, a dude in a KFC uniform brandishing a big-boned chicken leg.

    Zune Marketplace, Free.

  • Speedier Dial: Pin this app instead and your favorite contacts are still just two taps away--only now you've fewer Start tiles to flick past. Programming the speed-dial slots is simple: Just tap an empty one to see a list of your contacts. Tap a name, then a number.

    Zune Marketplace, Free
