Top 5 free Windows Phone apps - May 2012

Top free Windows Phone apps

Following up from last month's entry, this is our second post in the Top Free Windows Phone Apps series. Here are five wonderful apps for your Windows Phone for the month of May:

  1. Board Express for Tapatalk

    If you use forums, then most of you must've heard of Tapatalk. Tapatalk is an app for accessing forums in a mobile-friendly way, and Board Express for Tapatalk is its alternative for Windows Phone. Board Express lets you access over 25,000 forums which support Tapatalk. It's a quick and easy way to access, post and reply to threads. You can also read/write personal messages (PMs). It also has a feature of backing up your logins and favorites to SkyDrive. This free version is ad-supported but not limited in any way. You can always go for the paid version to support the developer.

  2. WhatsApp

    WhatsApp is a popular instant messenger for smartphones. It is available for all smartphone platforms including Windows Phone. WhatsApp lets you chat with your buddies, send pictures, audio clips or current location, and share contacts. WhatsApp works over EDGE/3G and Wi-Fi networks. It's free for the first year and $0.99/year later.

  3. IM+

    If you are an iPhone or Android convert, then you must be really missing Facebook chat and Google Talk. IM+ not only supports GTalk and Facebook chat, but also supports AIM, iChat, ICQ, Skype chat, Yahoo! and more.

  4. IMDb

    Movie buffs require no introduction to this app. IMDb stands for Internet Movie Database. It has the largest collection of movie, TV and celebrity information in the world. Browse over 1.5 million movie and TV titles, watch trailers, browse photo galleries, find out about movie show times at cinema halls near you etc. All these features and information are presented in a very beautiful way. In my opinion, it is one of the best-looking apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

  5. Shopping List

    This is a great little app for shoppers. Nothing fancy, but very functional. I expect SkyDrive integration to come in the near future because this app is developed by Microsoft.
