Win 10 apps (pic)
1

Office Lens

not functional in 10 on my phone, but I still use it on my Win 10 desktop, which I preferred anyway when it worked on 8.1

Rich Capture mode is a remarkable achievement IMHO, allowing for great flexibility in post & I think may even improve resolution, though I have not tested this formally ...brilliant camera app in general, but this might be its best feature

Co-Pilot

long time user of gps driving & still mourn the passing of Waze (lost for political business reasons) but this app makes up for it

possibly the best driving graphic implementation & quite accurate

the otherwise excellent Here which came bundled with the my Lumia is handsome, but a backup now for me

Cortana-Edge

i am a browser whore & greatly enjoy using multiple ones over the years

while a long fan of Mozilla & Opera, I have come to love how well this combo works on my phone

Win Mobile's app disadvantage may be partially due to this combination's outstanding implementation on their phones

I am using it more and more now & can see the beauty of its architecture

just for fun I have a shot I took thru a dirty glass window, hand held, using the Rich Capture mode on my Lumia 950 ...my old Fablet may do even better, though it doesn't have Rich capture mode as I haven't tried Win 10 on it yet

I left the moiré un altered which can be seen in the R mid upper quarter of the image & much better appreciated in my pbase small sensor gallery HERE

MS needs to get some apps working again, of which SkyOrb is one I lament, though I can still get it on my 8.1 device

I also wants them to make a small footprint, but high powered clam shell, like my beloved Veer ...go for it MS

audacious sells nowadays

Long Live WinMobile!
