20 Windows Phone apps for business (gallery)

Microsoft recently announced its Windows Phone Marketplace app store had passed the 50,000 apps mark. It's still a way behind Apple's 500,000+ iOS apps but WinPho apps are no longer rarer than hen's teeth.

Natasha Lomas of Silicon.com has taken a look at Marketplace's wares and rounded up 20 business-friendly apps from Microsoft's Windows Phone smartphone platform.

Here's an app that does what it says on the package - it allows users to place handy shortcuts to their homescreen for easy access, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings.

Does Apple really have over 500,000 apps? That seems like a bit much. I see a lot of reference books for $20 or more. Aren't these really glorified PDFs? Then there's the "Lite" or trial versions of apps and games. Really, 500,000? I just don't get that many returns when I am searching their store. It seems that a search using the word "car" should give me hundreds of choices, but it doesn't.

The Samsung Focus Flash looks good. It's the size of the iPhone, good for small pockets, and I think it does the same thing as the iPhone.
