I won’t be too lengthy, just right to the meat. Here it goes:
6Tag– 3rd party Instagram client and possibly the most feature rich client on any platform. Better than Instagram Beta, official app. Must have.
6Sec– 3rd party Snapchat client. Again, there is no official snapchat client yet. This is too good. It replaces my previous post of “Swapchat” installation.
9gag– My 9gag client. Awesome for killing time and some light mood enhancement.
App Folder– A Samsung app for organizing apps in folders. I had to use a “fiddler proxy” to install this. Not straightforward.
Auctionapp– Yes, This app is better than the official ebay app. It has real-time notification. Perfect
Baconit– Best reddit client. period. WPcentral claims otherwise, but I am starting to think writers there get compensated to promote.
Battery, by arthur semenov– Best battery app in the store. It has quick shortcuts for orientation and other settings along with awesome battery stats.
Day Counter– This app is one of those productivity gem. It is a simple counter app to keep track of days but beautfully executed.
Dhingana– Best Hindi Music/radio app. This is better than Hungama; This has better audio quality imo.
Facebook beta– I like this app as it gets frequently updated and is the first one to get features. Flipside, it can be buggy sometimes cuz of beta tag.
Gimmalpoint– This was a shocker app. Best Sharepoint app on any platform. period.
Global TV– Streams live TV channels from around the world. A data intensive app but well worth it. Well executed.
Here Drive+, Here Maps, Here Transit– My go-to mapping solution for directions of all kind.
Learn on the Go– A third party coursera.com app for taking online classes for free. Also really good.
Metrotube– Best third party youtube client. Who needs official youtube app. pssh!
Mint.com– My new favorite finance tracking app. This app coupled with Mint for Windows 8, I hardly go to the website anymore.
Nimbuzz– An app for voip calls, although it is a ghost town there. Thanks to Whatsapp.
Nokia Camera– Best Camera app for tweaking intricate camera settings. Period
Nokia Refocus– This one is a surprise. Didn’t think I’d like it but it is a gem to use.
OneNote– Ultimate note taking app. Nothing else comes close. I mean nothing.
Skydrive– To manage files on skydrive, not a must-have but good to have app.
SysApp Pusher– This app is good for finding the hidden Nokia gems from the store.
Total Fuel– To keep track of my fuel and mileage. Highly recommended.
TouchTimer– This app has awesome voice integration to activate the times using Windows button. well done.
T-translator– Best translator app. It has real-time translation and voice. well executed.
Weave– Best news Aggregator. Better than Phonely, again recommended by biased WPcentral reviews.
Whatsapp– Really the only messaging app I use. It is not the best of any platform but video attachments and other features are coming sooon.
Xbmc remote free– Without this app, controlling my raspberry pi would be a royal pain the arse. This is the only remote I need.
I hope you like the list. I will be working on Windows 8.1 app list too sooo.
Please check back in future
