Ever since I started using my Windows Phone Lumia, people have been constantly asking me about the apps. What are they like? How many are there?
The good news is, there are a lot. I am still missing a few of my favorite iPhone photography editing apps, but in general, everything I need is there. So here is a list, current for 2015, of all the apps you should get as soon as you get a Windows Phone. They are in alphabetical order, and I left off games because that’s a whole ‘nuther post in itself!
