Half of February came to an end, and it would seem that nothing bad will happen this weekend, as Google once again “laughed” at Windows Phone users, depriving them now in the mobile version of Google News: when switching to this section from a device running on a mobile operating system from Microsoft, an ugly version of the site will be opened, made for older devices such as those that worked on Symbian. In the meantime, I suggest you enjoy the wonderful programs available on the Windows Store.
Recently, developers have been actively releasing updates for their applications that are optimized for Windows 10. And if it’s a moot point regarding developers from Mcirosoft, then this is quite true regarding third-party developers, as can be seen from the numerous application updates.
Despite this, most application creators still do not forget about users on Windows Phone 8.1, and continue to refine them. For example, Dropbox, whose developer is Rudi Huyn, has recently been updated and brought many useful changes, for example, the ability to comment on files in the repository.
Throughout the existence of Windows Phone, AdDuplex has been known among users due to its regular statistics regarding the development of the mobile operating system and the general situation in the world. Recently, this company became known thanks to another important point for Windows Phone: at the end of last year, it introduced the AppRaisin program.
The essence of this application is that it is a platform where novice developers can present and promote their applications absolutely free. For a short period of time, the program received several updates, and in the latter there was an opportunity to comment on the creations of developers.
Today, winter is coming to an end, very soon green leaves will begin to grow on the trees, the sun will shine warmer, and schoolchildren and students will pass exams. At such a time, some begin to learn lessons, and in order to effectively implement them in their usual daily routine (somewhere between lying on the couch and playing on the computer) you need an organizer, or at least a visual planner.
This is exactly what the experimental Boards application from the creators of Todoist is. The main interest and meaning of the program is that you write all your plans for the future on special cards that are placed on the “interactive” board, where they are sorted in three columns: “make”, “in progress” and “done” - experts say That such an analysis of the work helps to focus and complete the tasks.
In the prologue to this article, I wrote about the next trick of the Monopoly Corporation, and here the gMaps application comes in handy, which appeared on Windows Phone back in version 7.0 and continues to provide a good alternative to standard Maps and HERE Maps, based on Google Maps.
For its long existence in the Windows Store, the application received many updates, but there is no limit to perfection, and most recently the developers released a new version of the program, thanks to which the Panorama of Streets function is now available for free, as well as search by voice input has become available - and this is not counting the numerous improvements and fixes.
Owners of devices with a mobile operating system from Microsoft probably know that on Windows Phone the official Twitter client is not the best solution for users of this social network due to the old design and backward features. Fortunately, third-party developers this time also help out the Windows community.
In releases of the best programs for Windows Phone, alternative clients for Twitter have slipped more than once, but each "artist" sees differently, so you can try Aeris, another unofficial client whose developers claim to have a modern design and constantly updated features.
