Windows Phone apps

If you've ever been to university there's a strong chance in many parts of the world you'll be familiar with Blackboard. A software platform used by institutions to communicate with its students on a whole host of things, as yet there aren't any official Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone applications for it. But that could be changing in the near future as the company is looking for "a Windows 8 / Windows Phone / Windows Surface Developer to revolutionize the role of mobile technology in education." Sounds promising.

Last week we looked at how the iOS App Store compared to the Windows Phone Store in 2014. It was a sobering look at how much work Windows Phone still has to close the app gap between the two platforms. That's especially apparent when you look at 'fad apps' like popular games or apps from a new startups or company.

It's not all doom and gloom for Windows Phone. Over the past two months we've seen major apps officially join the platform. Thanks is due in part to the Universal Windows app model that allows devs to target Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 with minimal work. Recently we've seen updates or releases for apps like Comedy Central, PlentyOfFish, UPS, AutoCAD 360, Barclays Pingit, Adobe Photoshop Express on Microsoft's platforms. The future is looking bright for Windows Phone and Windows 8.

Today we're going to turn the tables and look at some apps that are unique to Windows Phone and not available on iOS. We'll list some of the more popular ones and our favorites. Then you can hop into the comments and tell us what apps you love on Windows Phone that you can't get anywhere else.
