Best new Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone apps for November 2012

Best new Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone apps for November 2012
This is our monthly app selection with no games included. Go here for the best Android, iPhone and iPad games of November 2012.

After we saw Google Play even out with the App Store in terms of the sheer number of apps in October, it is time to move the focus of the conversation away from numbers and into quality. And that is good news.

Luckily, November saw no shortage of great new apps on both application stores. We tried to pick only the best new apps, trying to squeeze the number to less than a dozen. Interestingly enough, we are starting to see some of the first successful Android apps arrive on iOS (like FxCamera), in a migration that used to be only the other way around. A tribute to Android’s popularity? Maybe.

This month Windows Phone 8 has finally had a full month to get developers’ attention, and we’ve included a few neat applications for those of you sporting a WP8 device. Still, the platform clearly has a lot of catching up to do.

To avoid all confusion and flamewars in the comments, this month we are again separating the iOS, Android and Windows Phone apps. First come 9 best new iPhone and iPad apps, then - starting from number 10 - we have listed our picks for Android, and finally - starting from number 21 - a few neat new Windows Phone applications.

Take a look at all those new apps in the slideshow, and don’t hesitate to let us know about your favorites in the comments section right below.

If you bothered to you know read the article, you *might* have noticed that the majority of new apps are for Android. You might have also read this:

Good list, I may give Fhoto a whirl (though I like Nokia's own Creative Studio).

Translator has been available for months, it may be "new" for WP8.

Correction: ForeverMaps 2 shows on the Play Store as 99 cents.. How is it free? I know the offline maps must be but not the app itself.

I've been addicted to the new game "Dragon Terror" with different games and challenging levels. Such a fun game and got TiPB Pick of the Week!

Hey check this one called streetquest - run is a game. My personal best, its app for runners but not usual km counter but more game oriented.
Really good even for newbie joggers plus give lots of fun ;)
