Windows Phone still may be trailing iOS and Android, but Microsoft’s mobile-app library is growing every day, and currently includes more than 200,000 apps. What were once limited beta versions of popular apps are now fully featured and look beautiful on Windows Phone’s unique user interface. Windows Phone Live Tiles allow certain apps to show important information directly on the home screen, extending an app’s usefulness. The Windows Phone store gained some big app names recently, and is sure to capture even more in the coming years.
