I saw this article yesterday from the New York Times, The Best Apps, Although a Thinner Selection, for Windows 7. With 25,000 apps and growing, I have been able to find the ones I use easily. I have not included a review about a CRM mobile app… yet.
- Facebook for Windows Phone 7 (free): Built by Microsoft, the software is nicely designed, making good use of the big screens that are common on many Windows phones. The result is far less clutter than you’d find on a mobile Web
- The Weather Channel (free): When judging the company’s other mobile offerings, the word “lovely” doesn’t come to mind. It does here. Most of the vital weather information breezes by with a flick of the finger. The app would be almost flawless if it didn’t force you to click a link and wait for the hourly forecast details.
- Evernote (free): In my experience, Evernote offers the best mobile note-tracking software because it’s easy to use and fast. Enter a note, audio or text, and it is immediately synchronized with your Evernote account, so you could log onto the online version and it would be waiting for you there. The free version is enough for most purposes, with added storage available for an annual fee.
- Amazon Kindle (free): The Kindle app is optimized for the Windows Phone, giving users the ability to read Kindle books on a beautiful, easy-to-use interface. You’ll have access to over 750,000* books in the Kindle Store, including best sellers and new releases. Amazon Whispersync automatically syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across devices (including Kindle), so you can pick up where you left off on another device.
I also have loaded some for my hobby as a musician including a metronome and a tuner.
