Best new Android, iPhone and Windows Phone apps for July 2013

Best new Android, iPhone and Windows Phone apps for July 2013
Another month, another set of new apps... or is it so? Not so mundane - July 2013 marks the moment when Android’s Google Play outgrew the Apple App Store for the first time and officially became the world’s largest app marketplace and chances are it will keep growing its lead.

Most importantly, though, we are increasingly starting to see truly amazing applications that excel in both design and functionality appear on mobile. 2013 seems to mark a point in time when smartphones truly start becoming a commodity and the conversation shifts to more than just specs - to new form factors, sensors, capabilities and of course applications.

Right below, we have a pretty stellar selection of the absolute best applications on Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone. We tried to pick something for everyone, but this time we gave in to our geek nature and you’d notice that a larger percentage of the apps are pure nerd joy. Have you seen some other awesome new apps that we missed? And which of the ones listed below you like the most?

Android apps: #1 to #12
iOS apps: #13 to #24
Windows Phone apps: #25 to #35

I think the app makes a folder on the root of the device, and then you can transfer them over from your phone to pc ... I guess ... Best regards!

Since you do app reviews and all, do you see windows phone apps closing the gap between it and android+ios in terms of quality?

Not really, it actually feels like Android is accelerating in both quality and quantity.

I've got apk mania and appdrawer opened in my next two tabs. Chill, I'm just trying them out. And sometimes I forget to pay, you know...

Okay. So what's the disclaimer on Locket. Cause I can see some college kid using this to buy whatever college kids buy because mommy won't send money. Plus I have to wait another week to sell my blood plasma again.
