The number of apps available in the Windows Apps Store may not be near to what is available in Apple or Google Play store. But it has apps that can help your make the most out of your Windows Phone 8. Also, the number of apps for Windows Phone 8 are increasing day by day. The devices that are being released running Windows Phone 8 are no doubt good and Microsoft is working hard to make the operating system compete with Android and iOS.
If you are new to Windows Phone 8 and are looking for some useful apps, we have compiled a list of some of the most useful apps that are available in the Windows Apps Store.
Ladies and gentlement, am back with the final post of my three-part series. In case you missed the previous ones, here are the links, go have a look:

In this last instalment, I’ll talk about some of the features on Android that I wish Windows Phone 8 had and what I think can be done to make to make Windows Phone 8 even better.
Welcome to the second post of my three-part series. In case you missed it, here’s Part 1, where I spoke about my thoughts on WIndows 8 Phones, the performance and stability of the operating system and the the current state of apps.
In this second part, I’ll tell you about the features of WIndows Phone 8 that I have come to enjoy. Here are the ones that made my list…
After the lunch of Windows Phone 8 the smartphones war has changed. Finally, has Microsoft created a worthy OS to compete with Android and IOS. Big changes has occurred to the operating system but the question lies on the devices it offers. Two of the best Windows Phone 8 devices in the current market are dominated by Nokia’s Lumia 920 and HTC’s 8x.
Since, the launch of these phones the market competition or at-least people’s thoughts on the Windows Phone has massively changed. While, both the techies are tightly features packed and beautifully designed. You might have heard of these phones, and chances are you have probably also heard that one is better than the other or vice verse. The truth however, is that you can’t really pick one or the other, because they are both excellent.
Now, lets take a look at these splendid phones.
A year back, if you’d told me that Microsoft would beat Apple in unifying all your devices I would’ve laughed at your face. Plus, knowing Microsoft of the past, one would’ve expected them to botch it up, even if that were true. When legendary Allard, godfather of Xbox, quit the company, everyone, including me, started screaming that MS’s future is on the brink of destruction.
But this new Microsoft under Ballmer had other plans in mind. It was evident when they launched WP7. It was not just another wrapper on their old broken mobile engine. Rather it was a completely thought through, totally revamped product, focused on improving your experience. It turned out to be one of the best mobile platforms and the user experience is particularly phenomenal.
Still, even for Microsoft, Windows 8 is a greater leap, and far from their comfort zone. Many people are still looking out for the Start button, while others are busy calling names. Amidst all this hoopla, Windows 8 was launched recently and Microsoft has been under incredible pressure. It’s facing a never seen before competition from Apple and Google, threatening to erode it completely. Today we’re going to take a look at the challenges faced by Microsoft.
Back in the old days of smartphone infancy, your options for some ravenous digital gaming were somewhat limited; anything more than downloading a basic open-source port of Civilization or ‘some game from some site somewhere’ would require the ownership of one of Nintendo’s coveted Gameboy systems, lest you be relegated to the living room sofa. However most of the handheld consoles of the day were generally regarded as mere child’s play, certainly much too juvenile a pastime for the crisp-suit-toting, HP iPAQ-wielding business elite.
Of course, with the completely game-changing advent of the iPhone, iOS and Android, focus has turned to the viability of the modern-day smartphone as a viable gaming platform to rival dedicated solutions from Nintendo and Sony. So far we’ve seen some rather stellar results, with titles such as the casual hit Angry Birds and the more console-quality titles such as Infinity Blade demonstrating that the phone of the 21st century can entertain you in the gaming space, too. With the welcome introduction of the Unity 3D platform to Windows Phone, things could get a lot more interesting.
