I was excited to see Windows Phone listed, and that they started so early meaning a lot. Then they were mostly Bing apps (which are great) but I already have them. MyTube looks good though.
Also, more and more apps look like they're designed for Windows Phone, even on other platforms. Very Metro-like. And some users mistakenly call the interface ugly, yet their own OSes are being inundated with it.

they only hate it because it is MS and not android
seriously... these people have so much hate for MS not their bias is ever evident
Google and MS could do the VERY SAME THING and only MS will get the flack
take for example NSA and prism... you never hear anything about google or apple, they just got a pass... but everywhere you hear something about MS NSA backdoor, spydrive, spyboxone, etc
they just want to attack the giant or bully
even though google is the most prickish company on the planet.... surpassing apple

I still hold apple's patent EVERYTHING (even previously made stuff by other companies and individuals) strategy worse than anything google has done yet.

Oh com'on! No one is hating on M$ or WP right now so leave it alone.

I've seen much worse, this wasn't worth going ham over.

That's more like it phonearena! The calculator app is very good.

I'd also like to point out that the Windows Phone also has the NFL Mobile app that was highlighted for Apple and Android. The article should be updated to include it's link too! Otherwise great stuff, loving seeing the Bing App's mentioned, Bing News and Bing Weather are amazing.

6tag is better than official Instragram imo :)
WP apps are great. I'm very satisfied with my new phone - ATIV S.

Next time they need to use the screen shot feature in WP8 so that the pictures of the WP apps look as good as the iDroid apps.. And, they failed to mention that Inrix is also available on WP.

Personally I think these, with the exception of 6tag, are a poor representation of the best apps on WP.. Try Hipstamatic Oggl, Proshot, Nokia's new Pro Camera app, 6sec, WPCentral, any Rudy Huyn, or Liquid daffodil, app.. OMG the list goes on... And, like it was mentioned before these top quality WP apps are setting a new design direction even for iDroid apps... The WP experience is just absolutely amazing❕

I agree with your list actually. Wpcentral is by far the best app imo
20. Dastrix (Posts: 393; Member since: 23 Nov 2012)
+1 Totally agreed!
I'm loving those new apps that are coming out. I really like Hipstamatic Oggl, although I kind of defaulted to Nokia Creative Studio after a while. That's just me though, but the app is great. On a side note, the Nokia Pro and Smart Cam apps rolling out for the Amber update are brilliant! I actually set my default camera app to Nokia Pro Cam!

These are just the new ones per-month, not best overall :)

I'm not able to view the slideshow in IE10 on my WP8 device.
27. Dastrix (Posts: 393; Member since: 23 Nov 2012)
Sorry, late reply. Yes, it works fine, but I'm also having the same issue with the buttons. I'm not sure if it happens on all phones.
24. -box- (Posts: 3470; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
Works for my Lumia 925, however I'm still unable to hit "reply" , "report", or "thumbs up" with it before it disappears. Need to get Ray S. on that since he has a 720.
25. alterecho (Posts: 465; Member since: 23 Feb 2012)
Was going to say about that too. Those buttons appear when the the finger is on the screen, but disappears when you stop touching. There are many quirks with the behavior of IE10 on many sites.

I have to say that I quite enjoy Bing news. Looks amazing and has a great ui
