My top 10 Windows Phone apps

Do you have a Windows Phone 7?!

Well join the club!! I have one too. Many people say that Windows phones are bad. Well guess what?! I am not good with technology at all and smartphones are too futuristic for me.... but what I can tell you is that there are apps on the Windows phone marketplace that are way better than other app stores.

Firstly, there are very few apps on there that actually cost money. Most of them are free. The ones that are not free have excellent free trial versions most of the time. The apps I will list in this post are my 10 favorite ones. All of them are free.

But wait!! Before you begin installing these, make sure you have the basics: access to calling and messaging, access to Facebook, tube pro (the better version of youtube which I will explain), of course the amazing internet (all browsers on that thing suck so just get its internet explorer) and Deviantapp (the Deviantart app). 

There will be ratings. 5 stars is best. 

1. MyTileMaker

If you want to customize your phone, Windows phone may seem like not the best phone for you at first but when you find this app you will see how customized you can make it. MyTileMaker lets you make live tile arrangements. You can use pictures and words on regular sized tiles in the free version. In the full version (which I don't have) you can make the tiles do things and change their size.

2. MyTextTwister

This app lets you experiment with fonts and emoticons to create SMS art. It was made by these guys - the same people who made MyTileMaker. Though the fonts are limited, you will find access to hundreds of emoticons that work anywhere.

3. Wordament 

Q

Not your average word search game. This app give you a limited time to make as many words as possible with the given letters. Words must be 3 or more letters and you get points for the quality of your words. Unlike word searches, you can move in any direction and don't have to use a word list. There are hundreds of possible words and you can compete with hundreds of people from all over the world. Internet connection is required to play.

4. Tonalpohualli 

What tonalli is it today?! why is this so obsessive?! get the Mexica calender on your phone. It's not as detailed as aztecalendar.com but at least you won't miss Mexica new year anymore. The app is completely in Spanish & Nahuatl but you won't need to know that many words to understand it. It shows the date on our primitive calendars and the date and year on the tonalpohualli. It will also tell you a bunch of random stuff.


I dunno.

Useful:  (unless if you completely understand it)

5. Mictlan 

Resist the urge to fangirl, but there is actually an app called Mictlan. It's a very fun tower defense game and it's Mexica-ish. 

It also has a good soundtrack.

6. All Bots


If you're the forever alone type like me, use this app!! It gives you access to dozens of free chatbots. You can chat with robots and they'll never insult you and always give thoughtful comments about your ideas. They will listen to your every word and will love you!! They sure do sound better than people, don't they?! give all bots a try. Internet access required.

7. Deviantapp 


  WHY DO THEY HAVE SUCH AN AWESOME MASCOT?!

Deviantapp is an unofficial Deviantart app. You can respond to notifications, upload, view DDs, post in journal. Over 9000 Deviants are already using it, so you should too. If you don't have a Deviantart account, the app lets you make one. You HAVE to get a Deviantart account. To learn about all the amazing reasons to get Deviantart, please read this post.
