Top 3 Apps For Windows Phone
Windows Phone has always played third banana to the big-two duo of Android and iOS. In the past that was kind of deserved, Windows Phone has continually lagged behind the competition in almost every category. However, with the release of Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft has stepped up the game with a great, stable, good-looking product that given the chance could challenge the usefulness and usability of either major smartphone OS.
Another unfortunate with Windows Phone is the lack of apps. Many major apps share functionality between Android and iOS iterations, but the majority of content providers and services tend to ignore Windows Phone when it comes to providing their mobile offerings. This along with the plethora of fake apps that infest the Windows Phone Store, can make it difficult to find those must-have apps. We've taken the opportunity to provide three of our favorite apps that we find essential to using our Windows Phones.
Windows Phones have typically had excellent cameras with their Nokia Lumina line, but it the OS doesn't include a lot of stock options for editing those great photos. Fhotoroom changes that and brings a ton of editing tools that gives users a suite that rivals even a desktop application. This is a must have for those who love taking pictures on the go.
With Android and iOS, you have the likes of Google Keep, Evernote, and Notability that can store notes and to-do lists across platforms, with Windows Phone however, the Windows ecosystem is still quite fragmented so users will want to get their hands on Wunderlist. It's a great app that offers lists, tasks, subtasks and notification support, and will help you keep focused on the job ahead.
One of the biggest letdowns of Windows Phone is the lack of YouTube app support. Google has made it clear they don't intend to support to service on Microsoft's product so users have had to turn to third-party apps to get their YouTube fix. Tubecast is our favorite, not only does it support 4k streams at 60 fps, it also lets you use Chromecast, which pretty much makes it equal to or better to Google's own app on Android and iOS.
