Windows Phones are slowly beginning to become contenders to Apple’s iPhone and other smartphones. However, their number one problem is the limited selection of good apps. I have handpicked some of the best apps for Windows phones, that work well for me. The following apps are free, but some allow for upgrades to unlock more features, or to remove ads. There are more and more apps being created for this platform every day. Remember when the Android App Store was devoid of apps, and now it’s surpassed 800,000 apps. The same will surely be true for Windows Phones as well.
1. Facebook HD by KittyDev
This is a third party Facebook app which is much better than the official Microsoft app. It attempts to fix some of the issues that the official app has been having and for the most part, has been quite successful. You can do many more Facebook related things on this app than with others – which is the overall point. It’s not perfect, but it’s as close as you’ll get.
2. Gym PocketGuide by Dominic W
This is by far the best workout guide on Windows Phones. It gives you different exercises and programs to help you focus on your particular workout. From muscle building to weight loss, this app has a bit of everything. Easy to navigate and a great workout companion, this is easily one of the best Windows Phone apps.
3. PhotoFunia by Capsule Digital
Photo editing apps on Windows Phones that are truly worth trying out, are few and far between. However, when you come across PhotoFunia, you’re sure to be hooked. This is because it’s packed full of features, and numerous different effects. The ability to put a picture of a friend on a “wanted” poster has been a personal favorite. The varied photo effects and funny face photo montages make this a fun app to have.
4. Nokia City Lens by Nokia Corporation
It’s almost like sci-fi come to life with software that overlays businesses on your screen while you’re on the move. Nokia City Lens is a great way to find interesting places nearby and it is very simple to use. All you have to do is hold up your phone wherever you are, and up pops an overlay of info about the places around you, be it coffee shops, hotels, bus stops, landmarks, or restaurants. Finding a place for lunch has never been such fun.
