Tis the season for new Lumias as the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are finally getting into people's hands. Some are previous Windows Phone users while others are new to the fold. Still, there are a few who are just not familiar with Windows 10 Mobile and some of those new universal apps (Universal Windows Platform or UWP).

To get you started, I'm sharing with you some of my top apps for Windows 10 Mobile that are worth checking out. These are just main apps that I use every day, but I have omitted for now apps for photography and games as we'll feature those in another article. To be fair, not all of these apps are "true" Windows 10 Mobile apps as some are using some legacy coding from Windows Phone 8.1, but they work just fine due to backward support.

Think I missed something? There's a real good chance I did so let us know in comments what you would recommend people try out!

The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL both feature a USB-C connector supporting the USB 3.1 standard for faster charging and data transfer. It replaces the micro-USB port we've grown accustomed to. This means buying new cables if you lose one or need an extra charger at another place. We'll help explain more about USB Type C and what cables to get in case you need an extra one.
