Nokia announced yesterday of several high-profile apps coming to Microsoft's mobile OS - some of which will initially be exclusive to Lumia devices.
That includes the PGA Tour app, which will be exclusive to the Lumia for one year, and the ESPN app, which will only be on the Lumia until May 2013. An augmented-reality enhanced Groupon app and the AOL Entertainment Hub will also be available only on the Lumia for six months, while driving app Tripdots will be exclusive for three months.
Apps that will be available to all Windows Phone-based devices include cloud provider Box, Time Magazine, PayPal, and gaming titles from EA and Angry Birds maker Rovio.
Though Rovio's main title (Angry Birds) is already available on Windows Phone, it hasn't gotten the latest update: Angry Birds Space, while Android and iPhone users are already enjoying the update. Rovio says they are working on having future updates on Windows Phone come out at the same time with the Android and iPhone versions.
Upcoming EA titles include FIFA, Madden NFL, NBA Jam, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR, Mirror's Edge, and Yahtzee.
I'm still disappointing though this is good news, but these are not the popular/essential Apps we need on the Windows Phone platform, there's still no "words with friends" or "draw something" or any of the popular android/iPhone apps.
But it's still a step in the right direction.
