Of the apps mentioned I’ve only used Marathon (the first app I ever installed, had it on my old windows mobile, too) Facebook, and Accuweather (although somewhat redundant for those of us that have HTC Hub). I use Rhapsody for music (Zune doesn’t stream well) and I found Dictionary.com app handy for when I use a word in a sentence and someone asks: what does that mean. Throw my phone and say, “look up”. there’s also a “google maps” app gMaps that isn’t too bad, but the it’s ad supported unless you buy.
other apps I’ve used, Adobe Reader (wish FoxIt was available), Soduku (Microsoft Games– never played before), the HTC ones, especially attentive phone: flip for speaker works 99% of the time.
Also don’t forget that your “‘Me” tile has a “check in” function. And the search function to for text/barcodes and the search function for music identification (works very well for me)
I am surprised that Weave – RSS news feeder did not make the cut. it is the best news feeder i have ever come across. It is beautiful, customizable, and fun to use. I love getting all sorts of news from all perspective from U.S. news to news from all around the world. Everything from cooking to music to getting just microsoft news to politics, religion, and the list goes on and on. Hands down the best app i ever come across for news.
Spotify… seriously? That app is horrible. I love the service but the app is very weak and the sole reason I do not pay for the Spotify service. Rdio is a way better app, although not perfect, either. And the facebook app is actually pretty weak, too.
Les jeux sont fait. Nokia est coincée avec WP8 suite à l’aide d’un milliard de dollards fournie par Microsoft et Samsung lâchera Android quand Tizen sera au point. Le superbe Samsung Ativ S est désormais un objet de collection.
Seriously lumia us going down n is no match against android….,android has google goggles on da other hand bingle goggles is of no use …..lumia market will fall apart if this continues due to da lack of apps …….fuck lumia make all those pathetic apps free n come up with good ones…..
Of the 25 apps listed, there is only one I would bother with, Kindle. The other stuff mostly seems like stuff a journalist might need, not things an ordinary user would bother with.
I’d have included a few like Wikipanda, Musixmatch, No. 1 Toolbox and a decent weather app (Weatherflow is pretty but it’s also quite basic). But mostly the apps everyone needs are specific to them, like their bank’s app or travel-specific apps like Kayak or Bing Translator, so a list is pretty pointless, really.
