  1. You ignored the most important aspect of a Windows phone and that is the Live Tile and the information they display. By the way, my favourite apps from that point of view are WP box, Engadget, and Bing News.

    • While I agree that Live Tile display is important, you may have ignored the fact that these are just some suggestion of apps based on their user interface design and ease of use along with the complexity of features they offer. Most importantly the categorization has been done based on their functionality which falls into specific category like RSS feed, Pocket client, Reddit client apps etc. and therefore not every apps could be included in this list.
      Please don’t get disheartened if your favorite apps couldn’t make it to the list this time. This post is part of series and we will continue to point out other beautifully designed apps on Windows Phone.
