Our 5 favourite new Windows Phone apps of the week

Last week we were treated to a ton of marvellous new apps in the Windows Phone Store, and this week is no different.

There were plenty of new ones and updates to old favorites alike, which we’ve sifted through to find five appy gems just for you. And we’re pretty pleased with our selection this week, showcasing a good balance between fun games and useful tools. Read on to find out what’s new.


What is it: A smart dialer for Windows Phone

Why we love it: Truedialer is an update to your phone’s dial pad, which lets you automatically search for information about a number you are dialing. The app, developed by the TrueCaller Team, searches both your own contacts and Truecaller’s 1 billion+ numbers database. This means that you can learn the name of a person or business of a number that you dial, even if they aren’t in your contacts. If you use TrueCaller, TrueDialer is a nice addition.

Who it’s perfect for: People that use TrueCaller



ProShot (update)

What is it: A popular photography app

Why we love it: We don’t hide our love for ProShot here at Connects, so naturally we’re pretty excited to try out the updated version of the camera app. A ton of improvements and new features were added! A few of our favorites include startup time improvement, increased max zoom, and the option to save 20/41MP images directly to your camera roll. There’s plenty more cool new things, so be sure to check it out.
