Best Nokia Lumia 900 Apps List
Apart from all the above apps, you can try following apps on your Lumia 900 handset.
1. Rowi: Last time when we compiled the must have lumia apps list, Rowi was missing from the list because the new version 2.0 was not available to the general public. Users of this generation must be aware of what twitter is. Rowi 2.0 will knock your socks off with abundance of features. Of course, Carbon app did impress us in the past, but the new version Rowi has just added more impressive features that enforced us to list it here.
2. Skype Beta: Though in beta state, Skype beta app is a must have app for those who love doing Skype calls. Ever since the acquisition of Skype, the tattlers are claiming that Skype will eventually be baked in Windows Phone 8 aka Apollo OS. Even though, this seems likely to happen, nevertheless, users have to rely on dedicated Skype beta for now. There are certain restrictions like it doesn’t work in background. The overall performance of the app is decent which offers better audio and video clarity.
Alternatively, you could also try Tango video chat app which is available in the marketplace for free.
3. AppFlow: Browse Windows Phone marketplace in a most beautiful way. AppFlow has a most engaging UI and provides tons of insight about the apps. Besides, AppFlow there is also yet another marketplace browser app called WP7 Applist. Both of the apps provide unique and subtle way to browse through different categories, latest app, most reviewed app, games and more.
AppFlow has slight an upper hand as it has more unique categories and lists that may help you to discover only best apps for your Lumia 900 handset.
4. Nextgen Reader: The winner of Nokia Conversations app madness March 2012, Nextgen reader is truly NEXT Generation Google Reader client for Windows Phone. In essence, it is truly an amazing app with offline support. Read your favorite feeds, news, YouTube videos and share them to popular social sharing like twitter, Facebook instantly.

Alternatively, WP7 AppList also brings the similar features to the table. Why buy expensive app when you can buy it for cheaper? To keep track of latest discounted app you can pin the app to start screen. There is also push notification to get latest deals and publishers exclusive news.

7. Pinsation: Pinterest is arguably the most fastest growing social networking site of 2012. Although, there is yet no official client available, there are plenty pinterest clients available in the marketplace. We would like to give shout out to the Pinsation. It uses official API and hence is faster than compared to other apps available in the marketplace. Enjoy pinning new pictures, repin your friends pin, share it to your social networking crowd and do much more with this app.
8. Calculator²: Though the default Calculator app has basic and scientific calculator support, it lacks more functions. Calculator² supports basic, scientific, programmer, unit converter and currency converter calculators. It supports 50 scientific functions, 125 mathematical and physical constants, 150 world currencies, 200 units for conversion, signed and unsigned numbers and much more. It also stores last 50 calculations so you can easily go through them or utilize them in your next calculation. It is one of the must have calculator app for students and geeks alike.
9. Connectivity Shortcuts: How often do you feel that WiFi setting takes lot more time to browse than it should be. Strangely enough, there is no way to pin WiFi, Bluetooth and few other settings to homescreen. Connectivity shortcuts provides an easier way to access all connectivity settings like WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode and cellular setting
10. Next Browser: Next Browser is a very slick browser for Windows Phone. It works on IE9 core engine but adds few extra features to make your browsing breezing fast. Users can open 10 tabs at a time, pin the site or deep link as a live tile, change default search engine provider, change background color and much more. Overall, Next Browser is a decent alternative of default IE9 browser. But unlike, UC Browser for Windows Phone it misses SkyDrive integration, in-build download manager.
No matter how many apps we include in the list, it will always be incomplete since we don’t get a chance to test each and every app. However, we would still like to give shot out to the following apps for their awesome performance.
