Best Windows Phone apps of 2012
This is our app selection with no games included. Go here for the best Windows Phone games of 2012.

We’ve long been saying the Windows Phone platform isn’t mature enough, lacks the apps and many other things. And while that’s still true to a certain extent, with Windows Phone 8 and 2012 behind our backs, the situation has improved and the Marketplace looks more cheerful, packing more quality titles.

The official stats mention 125,000 apps on the Windows Phone app catalog, but in reality what matters to most is just a few apps and games.

That’s why we have selected the best apps of the bunch here. Windows Phone still doesn’t have the backing of Google and its stellar apps, nor some popular apps like an official Dropbox client, but it has gotten much more content this year. With no further ado, here are our picks for best Windows Phone apps of 2012.

anybody else notice when phone arena talks the best of windows phone....its usually all insults then shows pictures of the apps or game without talking about why the APPS or games are good..........its like it hurts them to say something good. phone arena talk about the damn app or game and inform us.

these apps looks freakin gorgeous :O windows phone may or may not have alot of apps but it certainly seems to have wide range of quality apps.and i guess that's what matters at the end of the day instead of a zillion apps with a horrible ui.even android has still got alot of apps which go towards their seperate ways rather than following android 4.x's holo UI.
