Microsoft claims that it has published 75,000 new apps for its Windows Phone Store this year, vastly expanding the availability of tools and games for customers.
Those with handsets like the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X, which use the latest version 8 operating system, are able to take advantage.
Owners with mobile phones using older platforms are also able to install and utilise the vast proportion of apps on offer.
At the moment, Facebook is the most popular free app on the Windows Phone Store. This social networking tool allows members to easily keep up-to-date with friends.
WhatsApp, which lets users connected to the internet send messages to each other for free, is also high on the list, alongside VoIP tool Skype.
The majority of the top paid apps are popular games, such as Fruit Ninja, Angry Birds and Doodle Jump – all which cost just 79 pence.
Perhaps as people start to prepare for New Year’s resolutions, Gym PocketGuide has climbed the best-rated chart.
