Windows Phone 8 – Must Have Apps


The race to find the best mobile operating system is heating up. With the evolution of the app ecosystem, people have begin to list the apps available before choosing the OS suitable for them. For now, Blackberry is the one that it's lagging behind every other since it was a late comer, launching just months back. But, there are yet to release platforms such as the Ubuntu mobile OS, Jolla Sailfish and even the one from the browser giant, Firefox OS.

Today, we take a look at some of the best apps available for the Windows Phone 8 platform:

Instant messaging has been to a different level with this brilliant app. Whatapp allows you to share Photos, Videos, Audio and even Contact info with your beloved friends and family. The app is equipped with a huge lot of emoticons which aid you to express your reactions clearly.


The services offered by Google are always inevitable. The quality of their service is so great that cannot be expressed in words. Though there is Bing search pre-installed, people can have a taste of Google with the simply built Google Search app. It is similar in the case of maps, Nokia maps (rebranded later as Here Maps) is just superb, especially for the Indian customers. But Google search is something special. It even provides you with live features such as the traffic details and also the travel routes more precisely. Even though Google’s official Maps app is not yet available for the platform, “Gmaps” comes with all the features that Google could offer.

4.) Twitter:

  1. Weave is...moderately okay. Really the most popular RSS reader would be Nextgen Reader. Also 4th & Mayor (Foursquare App) is very good and not mentioned above. One of the newer releases for WP8 is Pandora, which is brilliant and beautiful. Also not making your list but hands down on mine is Weather Flow, which features innovative live tiles and the option to switch between metro / rich styling.
