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:
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).

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
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.
