We're back with the fifth installment in our monthly Top
Free Windows Phone Apps series, where we scour the Windows
Phone Marketplace for five amazing apps for your Windows Phone.
Audible - Audiobooks
If you listen to audiobooks then Audible needs no introduction.
Audible for Windows Phone offers you more than 100,000 audiobooks
to download from its mobile store. The most notable features are
Play-as-you-Download and Sleep Mode. It comes with Facebook and
Twitter integration, so you can let your friends know what you're
BandWidth is a speed testing app which will test the speed of
your Wi-Fi/3G/2G connection. It will automatically list servers
based on your location. Your test results are preserved and past
test results can be viewed in the History section. You can also
share your results on Facebook or Twitter.
If you are an Android convert then you must have felt the need
for a quick switch to enable/disable Wi-Fi, cellular data,
Bluetooth, etc. There is no easy way to do this on a Windows Phone
by default, but ConnectivityShortcuts solves this problem. It lets
you pin live tiles on the Start screen which directly take you to
the respective settings screen. You can also customize the live
tiles as per your taste.
LinkedIn is a widely-used professional network and this official
app for Windows Phone lets you keep in touch with your professional
connections on-the-go, tune in to the latest news from your
industry, get regular updates on your connections, manage your
profile and share content with your network.
Weave is a news/RSS app with a very beautiful interface. Weave
offers over 180 pre-loaded news sources and 33 categories
out-of-the-box, but also comes with an option to add new
categories. In addition to that, you can also search and add RSS
feeds of your choice. Articles can be shared via email, Facebook
and Twitter. Weave has Instapaper support, so you can save an
article to read it later at your convenience.
