750 Windows Phone Apps?
750 Windows Phone Apps?
July 28, 2013

Today I picked up a Lumia 1020. I am impressed with the camera as you’d expect but I am also loving the size. It’s about the same size as the 920 except for the extra camera bump. It feels lighter than I expected. The AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 3 looks great too.

While I was setting up the new phone, I headed over to Windows Phone’s website to install my apps. The website has a feature called “purchase history” that allows you to look at what apps you’ve purchased and re-install them on your phone with a single click. What is interesting is that it seems I’ve installed over 750 apps over the time I’ve had with Windows phone. Yeah…750. I was surprised too.

The list includes trial apps, apps that are no longer available, duplicate entries for apps with full and trial versions, and a handful that were never certified for Windows Phone 8. So realistically there were probably over 400 apps I could have installed from my prior I used this tool to reinstall the apps I wanted (and no, I didn’t install them all ;) After chatting on Twitter, I was asked if I would list my favorite 50 apps. Instead of that I am going to list all the apps I actually used (as of today) in no particular order (with description if necessary):



Did I miss your favorite app (that you didn’t write)? If so, post it below!
