Lumia 630 Review — "Another thing which i was seriously bugged about is that there is no proximity sensor and if you don’t know what a proximity sensor is used for, it is that sensor which turns off your display when you take a call so you don’t accidentally press" Continue reading.Big named apps like Snapchat and specifically the entire Google app selection like Gmail, Google Maps, Google+ and Google Photos still do not exist on the Windows Store because the people behind them don't like Microsoft. While the Windows Phone app gap definitely exists, devoted developers like Rudy Huyn have expressed their loyalty to the Windows platform by filling out that app gap with an unofficial version that tends to work better than the original one.
But here it is, 4 essential apps that you need to have on your Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile device.
6tag (Free ad-supported)
But basically, 6tag is a third party instagram client for Windows Phone and the app will soon be a universal application that will work across Windows 10 devices. In terms of features, 6tag has everything the official instagram app has and the developer has also implemented some nifty features like a dark theme, an option to disable ad posts and you can actually unlike a photo on 6tag. Not to mention that 6tag also has multiple account support before the official instagram app actually had it.

Inside the app, the first tab is a highlights section which displays popular articles and this implementation is pretty nifty as it helps me to quickly sift through the 'hot' stuff each morning. Of course, there is also another tab which displays articles in terms of the time it is published. Converge is not a perfect app as the formatting for some articles are a little off but it is the best new reader app that I have come across on Windows Phone. If you think there's a better app out there, do tell me in the comments section.

Other than that, nifty features like being able to download the video in different formats or as an audio clip is a handy thing to have. You can also play music in the background with MyTube and the best part about this app is that there is no rolling ads before the videos. As to what I know, most YouTube apps on Windows Phone allows you to download videos and play music in the background. And if you think this features sound a little familiar, you're not wrong to think so as this is what YouTube Red is all about.
The app itself costs $0.99 to buy but like most Windows Phone apps, MyTube will work across all Windows 10 devices.
