Here are our picks for the monthly Top
Free Windows Phone Apps blog series. Another five
awesome-yet-free WP apps, for the month of October:
This is the official remote app for μTorrent. You can add,
remove, start, stop and check the progress of torrents running on
your home computer right from your Windows Phone. In addition to
that, you can also shift completed downloads to your Windows Phone
for local playback. This app is in beta so don't be surprised if it
crashes on you.
Endomondo Sports Tracker
Endomondo is a popular sports and fitness app that is available
on almost all platforms. It's a feature-packed fitness app that
will appeal to a fitness freak, but at the same time, won't
intimidate a newbie. It claims to track any distance-based sport
and calculates factors like speed, distance, duration and calories
burned using the phone's built-in GPS. There's also a feature to
play songs from your phone's library. You can share your workout
with your friends via Facebook. You can pin the Live Tile to your
Start Screen, which will show history and/or news feed updates.
It is a Pastebin.com client. You can
create new pastes and view the ones you've created before. The
pastes can be shared via SMS, email and social media. You can also
view the trending pastes. They have updated the app with stability
enhancements, but it may crash occasionally.
This is the official Windows Phone app. You can watch videos,
manage your existing ones, like, comment and share them. You can
discover new content by browsing the categories and the Featured
section. The most important feature is that you can upload your HD
videos. And you can pause/resume them.
Though this is an unofficial app, it is the best-looking
Wikipedia app in the Store as of now. And it's not just
good-looking, it's feature-rich at the same time. You can pin
multiple Live Tiles, change the font size and color of the app, add
any article to your favorites, and view a summary of the article.
You can share any article via email, Facebook or Twitter and add it
to Read It Later or Instapaper for viewing it later.
