Windows Mobile did the third-party app thing long before Apple came along. While many of them were expensive and difficult to install, today Microsoft's much-maligned smartphone platform has plenty of awesome free contenders.
Discovering those apps can still be a chore, though. Microsoft's Windows Marketplace for Mobile now works on all Windows Mobile 6 phones, but it only has a few hundred apps. If you don't have Marketplace on your phone, you can get it athttp://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/get-marketplace.mspx. Other stores, most notably Handango (www.handango.com) have larger selections, but even then, some apps can only be downloaded from manufacturers' Web sites. We'll tell you how to install each app in our story.
Obviously, we're only scratching the surface of free Windows Mobile apps here. If you have favorites of your own that we're not mentioning, add them to the Comments section below.
From upgraded browsers to Microsoft's tweaked-out mobile search engine, here's how to power up your Windows Phone for the new decade.
