Windows Phone Germany is giving away for a limited time, five free holiday (vacation) related apps worth up to 270 EUR ($350.46 USD). Taking a shot at Android, Windows Phone Germany's Facebook page takes a shot at Android by saying, "And best of all Windows Phone apps are checked for malware and malicious software." There's a comment that hits a sore spot with Android users and developers.

With 3,900 commonly spoken phrases related to travel, the app is designed to help users quickly find the phrase they are looking for. You can even pin commonly used phrases to the start screen of your Windows Phone 8 model for even quicker use. This app is usually 9.49 EUR ($11.68 USD).

In Europe, a holiday is what would be called a vacation in the U.S. And if you are motoring about, you'll need to put gas into your vehicle which is where the next app comes in. finds the cheapest gasoline in your area and also helps you find a petrol station while you're out driving. Usually 1.99 EUR ($2.58 USD), this app could certainly come in handy if you're traveling to Germany.

Lastly, MM Travel is an online travel guide that shows you the weather, places of interest and other information that you could use to plan your holiday. Priced at 8.99 EUR ($11.67 USD), this app is also free for a limited time.

You can pick up all of these free apps by heading over to the Windows Phone Store. Outside of MM Travel, which is for Windows Phone 8 only, the other four free apps can be installed on a Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8 model.

You have a windows phone, so I am glad to help. WP has several Flight Tracker Apps. The first three in the list go actually by the name "Flight Tracker". Searching for a flight tracker app, you will get over twenty results. I personally made good experiences with the first one on the list.

Reading the aggressiveness of the comments, I am surprised how defensive Android fanboys have become. I just relax; enjoying my new Windows Phone.
