Nokia Lumia 900 countdown: useful apps on Windows Marketplace

Forget about Android and iOS, the operating system set for big things this year has got to be Windows Phone.

Windows Phone has been plugging away for a while now, but Microsoft has failed to make any kind of serious dent in the smartphone market.

But collaboration with Nokia has produced an exciting new challenger to Apple and Android in the form of the Lumia 800.

The Lumia 800 has been well received by critics, and rightly so. And as Nokia is not one to rest on its laurels, the Lumia 900 has been tipped for release in June this year.

The Lumia 900 is set to be another very exciting addition to the smartphone market. So with that in mind, what are some of the most useful apps on the Windows Marketplace?

The Windows Marketplace is still in its relative infancy, and has a long way to go before reaching the dizzying heights of Apple’s App Store. But the Windows Phone OS means that the Marketplace apps offer something a little different.


In these money-saving times, there are all kinds of voucher apps available. But Vouchercloud is one of the best.

With Windows Phone’s tiled interface, you can pin this version of the app to your home screen to ensure that it updates geographically without having to be kept open.

Bingle Maps

This map app searches locations, gets directions, drop pins and synchronises with DropBox. As you may have guessed from the clever name, this app integrates with both Bing and Google to bring you as much information as possible.

My Expenses

If having access to different money-saving vouchers isn’t enough to keep your spending down, the maybe download this app to help you manage your finances.

The My Expenses app lets you do pretty much anything to do with money management, from creating balance sheets to drawing up pie charts.
