Favorite Apps For the Windows 8X Phone

 

I have spent the last month getting used to the Windows 8X phone, and have finally discovered some of my favorite apps. It is true that the app store is a bit lacking, however I have found some great substitutes, and new favorites, check them out!

Fhotoroom- Mobile photo editor, good substitute for Instagram. Filter your photos with 50+ filters, then share to skydrive, Facebook, twitter, or flickr. There is also a basic editor to tweak your photos.

Allrecipes- Delivers thousands of recipes featuring photos and reviews, and it’s free! Choose by ingredient, time it takes to cook, or type of dish 9appetixer, dessert, etc.)

The Emergency Kit- Store your blood type, allergies, medications, or your emergency contacts. A personalized lock screen will contain your emergency contacts even if screen is locked. You can also turn your phone into an SOS light beacon and learn how to treat different injuries.

Pinspiration – Browse and post to Pinterest from your mobile phone. You can even sign into your account and share images.

Rowi- Third party Twitter app. You can use multiple accounts so you can “tweet as” different accounts.

  1. Allrecipes is AWESOME! I love how you can go on the site and choose recipes into your recipebox and can pull it right up on your phone, along with shopping list. Makes it so easy!

  2. That emergency kit app sounds very cool. I have the regular Pinterest app — any idea how Pinspiration is different? Or is it special for this phone (I have an iPhone). I use all the social media apps ….

  3. I get overwhelmed with apps but they’re all so cool! ;)

  4. I definitely needs to get the AllRecipes app! Thanks for sharing!

  5. I have an iPhone so I have millions of app choices. My favorite and most useful is Happycow. It works kind of like Yelp to locate and review vegan and vegan friendly restaurants. So helpful when traveling, I use it all the time.

  6. I just discovered Lomogram for Windows 8 as a possible Instagram replacement. Doesn’t have the cache of the intstagram url on the links, but with 40 filters that are easier to use than Fhotoroom, I’m going to stick with it for awhile.

  7. Licensed Nail technicians provide services in saloons and spas alongside other aesthetic professionals.
    The range of colors would span from clear or transparent, all the
    way through the pinks, to darker purples, and black.
    It is all about making your nails look really attractive by using
    various nail art pieces like 3-D ceramic flowers, animals, marine life and even donuts on your nails.
