Best Windows Phone apps for 2018

We list the important Windows Phone apps to help you choose what to download

AirWatch MDM Agent

AirWatch, LLC

Category: Business

Price: Free

A management tool for the company that relies on communication and collaboration, this app can be used with the AirWatch console to monitor and manage all devices across a company. This app keeps track of everything, and is easy to set up and use.

Main Idea: With the rise of BYOD in business, it's already true that nearly everyone works with a mobile device. The app helps to manage this, improving security and more.

Box

Box

Category: Business

Price: Free

Box offers 10 GB of free storage space out of the gate that's currently 8 GB more than competitor Dropbox (2 GB). If that's not reason enough to use this reliable and, so far, secure cloud storage service, we don't know what it is. It's also cross-compatible with Windows 8 and 10.

Main Idea: 10 GB of free storage and the ability to sync your files to all your devices.

Alternatives: OneDrive, Dropbox

CalendarPro Free

eWebSoul

Category: Business

Price: Free

By their very nature, calendar apps tender to be pretty straightforward, but with the frequency that we use them only the very best are worth your time. CalendarPro is among the highest-rated scheduling apps on Windows Phone, offering a smart interface and deep integration with Live accounts.

Main Idea: Advance calendar features that integrate with the user's Windows Live account.

Alternatives: True Calender 8, Chronos Calendar

Call Recorder

Asleroid

Category: Utilities & tools

Price: Free

Perhaps even more important than an audio recording app, this app lets you record your phone calls and refer to them later. Play back the file on your phone or upload it to OneDrive to save or share it so that you can follow those important phone calls without busying yourself with note taking. You can even password protect sensitive calls to keep conversations confidential and secure.

Main Idea: Recording phone calls can keep the focus on your conversations and help you refer back to important details in the future.

CamCard

IntSig International Holding Limited

Category: Business

Price: Free

Keeping track of paper business cards can be difficult and lead to a cluttered desk, but CamCard cuts out the physical mess by storing pertinent contact information in an e-card. Simply scan the card using your phone's camera, then read the information to complete the profile. The card data syncs across smartphones, tablets, and web so that you have access to the information you need when you need it.

Main Idea: A fast and efficient way to keep track of your business contacts, CamCard recognizes sixteen languages and allows you to exchange e-cards with other app users.
