Shortcuts:

WP8

Why?

Instead of going to “Settings” of your WP8, finding the setting (Wi-Fi, BlueTooth, Airplane mode etc.) you are looking from there , just pin those commonly used settings to your Windows Phone’s home screen. It is extremely simple  and free!

Nokia Music:

W8, WP8

Why?

Love music? Nokia Music for Windows 8 is a complete playback and discovery experience for your computer. Many of us use our Windows 8 tablets and Phones every time when we are mobile; so Nokia Music app offers the best Mixes as well as the Offline Mixes.

My favorite feature of the app is the “Play To”; so you can stream your music to any DLNA-enabled devices like your TVs, pretty cool…..

Bing Translator 

WP8, W8

Why?

Bing Translator is an indispensable resource for helping with on the fly translation.  It supports some great features with the ability to translate from voice, text and a photo!  Pin it to your Windows Phone or start screen and get the “Word of the Day” in your default language.  Perfect for those people in MEA HQ who need to visit multiple countries :-)

CheckMyTrip Mobile for Windows Phone:

WP8

Why?

Being always on the move and having several trips to manage can be very difficult, you can easily forget your flights dates/times.

With this very useful app, I can have a single repository for my flights and check if any time changes have been made.

Camera360 for Windows Phone:

WP8

Why?

Great app with tons of customizable options, I use it to take photo and video when travelling.

The different modes integrated with it (Auto, Portrait, Scenery, Food, Night, Microspur) and the variety of effects make easy to get wonderful picture that you can edit and share  immediately on Facebook or Twitter .
