Yesterday, Microsoft announced that "46 of the top 50" mobile apps are on Windows Phone 8. What are these top 50 apps, and which 4 are missing from WP8?


The four apps are:

  • Instagram
  • Viber
  • Pinterest
  • Wells Fargo

according to Joe Belfiore. Source

  • And of course, these are either now available, or coming...

They didn't publish any list of apps. but I could find 3 of the 4 missing popular iphone apps

  • Instagram
  • Instapaper
  • Flipboard

guess they looked at a combination of itunes charts and google's play store charts to make up the top 50

  • If anyone can find the 4th app, I'll accept this answer.

I guess the four apps referred might be the following.

  • Instagram
  • Voxer
  • Wells Forgo
  • Pinterest

For much more into the apps in market and whats not, I read this article which you might find interesting Fact Check: Microsoft’s Claims About App Numbers for Windows Phone. BTW, the author was a previous macworld author, so you might find it bit partial. But, anyways you just want to know the best apps so it will work :-P
