The Windows Phone platform is often criticized for lacking the sheer number of application as its counterparts. Well, here I am to prove that numbers alone isn’t everything. Here are a range of apps spanning various categories that I’ve found really useful over the past few months that I, as a student, have found extremely useful. Take a look — maybe you’ve missed a few as well!
Kids these days are hard to be entertained. Else, they keep bothering you and everybody needs a peace of mind then and there, right? Children between the age of two to five love to color. That is an established fact. There are not enough coloring books in the world for them. Of course you can let them use MS Paint. But having them see a computer screen for so long bothers me somehow.
This is where Shapes Coloring Book comes in to the picture. It is a Windows mobile app which consists of a lot of pictures for the kids to color. Of course that is not all it offers? Let’s take a quick look.
Like any other person, I spend a lot of my free time playing games on my mobile. I was on the look out for a new game when I came across Pencil Blade. One thing I should probably mention is that it is exactly like Fruit Ninja.
What made me download this game is that it has a very catchy interface. Even though it is the same as Fruit Ninja, people don’t seem to mind. I know this as a fact because I saw the ratings and reviews and it is actually very persuasive. Now, let me give you a gist about why this game is pretty cool.
The number of people from different countries that I know has significantly increased over the past few years. A lot of my classmates are from other continents and even though they can speak English, it is nice to woo them by sending texts in their own language once in a while, don’t you agree?
I found a nice app for translating text right from my Windows phone. Yeah, you can Google but it is useful to have an app solely dedicated for translation then and there. The app’s name is Translator and it is one of the best rated app on the Marketplace.
Word games are not for everyone. But if you like word games, I found a fun but challenging game that will make your brain spin called Wordament.
Wordament is a designed by Microsoft Studios and is one of their finest works and I absolutely loved playing it. The game is simply amazing and is really is one of a kind. I might be over selling it but when you play it, I’m sure most of you will feel the same way. Now, let me give you a quick gist of what the game is all about.
I absolutely loved playing Draw Something. Till now, I thought it was only available for Apple and Android platforms but no, they are available for Windows too. Sadly, it is not free and I didn’t really want to pay for a game that I play once a week.
So, I was searching for a free game in more or less the same category in the Windows Marketplace and I came across What’s the Word?. That was an interesting title, meaning I really had to check out what it really was. With 50k+ reviews, it felt like an easy choice. Let me tell you what the game is all about.
I’ve always wanted to write about a game for AppStorm. Even though the marketplace has an awful lot of games in its repository, Blocked In gained my attention the moment I saw it – mainly because of its ratings. It was love at first sight and I badly wanted to write about it.
Blocked In is basically a puzzle game and is one of the most downloaded game in the Windows Marketplace. True to the developers’ word, I found it a very addictive game. Should you give it a chance too? Read on to find out more!
For sometime now, I’ve wanted to try out the ebay app. Even though I buy 70% of my stuff in ebay, I had never downloaded the mobile version — I almost always use the web version. I guess it’s finally time and here I am with a fancy Windows phone and an app just for online shopping.
Do you know how tough it is and how much effort it takes to sketch something? I sure know how seeing as I’m not really gifted in the sketching department. I draw something, find it stupid, erase it and redraw from scratch. After a while, I end up with an entire layer of paper erased off. Yikes!
I recently found an app called Sketch Board. I was skeptical at first as usual. But I later found it to be a fun app to use. It’s just like using MS Paint in your desktop. I had always been a fan of sketching applications and I badly wanted to try this out. Now, let’s see all the features the app has to offer.
Do you hate it when you have to skip a song when you clean your house and your computer, which is playing it, is way back in the other room? Or think about this scenario – you hang out on your system after a long day at work and you go to your bed and forgot to turn if off? No one wants to get out of the cozy bed just to shut it down. Well… I don’t.
From now on, you can control your system from where you are using PC Remote! All you have to do is, have a Windows Phone, download the app and use it. PC Remote is loaded with a great deal of useful features. Let’s take a look at it.
