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

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

July 2012 is now officially a history, but as August kicks off we look back to remember the best apps that launched on Android and iOS in this past hot summer month (in our part of the hemispehere, that is!).

The summer isn’t the most active period for phone makers, but when it comes to apps they just keep on coming, so if you open your app catalog you’d never be bored. But you could easily get lost or waste a lot of time on sub-par applications. That’s why we cherry picked the best applications we saw in July - check them out and let us know how you like them! 

Have you found some other awesome apps we missed? Don’t hesitate to also share with everyone in the comments below.

WP 8 will soon kill Android, so it makes sense to me. Also, finding a good app in the ton of crap is nearly impossible on Google Play.

Yep. Google Play is a bunch of crap with a few jewels that get pirated.
