We can’t help but notice how August marks a time when developers finally start to pay close attention to design and looks of their apps. iOS applications have long set the gold standard, but now Android is also catching up and we have to point out the awesome Timely Alarm Clock app.
There was more than this however, and we have summed it all up below - the best new Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone applications. Make sure to let us know which ones you like and which new ones you have that we did not include - all in the comments below.

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'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.

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❕

+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!

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.
