Microsoft Band Apps – The April Sequel

Microsoft Band Apps – The April Sequel

Last month I went through the Windows Phone store to find out what apps developers were creating for the Microsoft Band after the release of the SDK for the platform.

At that time the numbers roughly doubled in the store for Band related apps and this month they have grown that much again.

So I went through the store to see the latest additions to the Band and bring those to your attention here. This listing and our earlier one should be very helpful to our friends in the UK who are just getting their Bands starting today.

As you will see below it is almost an even mix of those that are free and available for purchase. However, this month I saw my first freemium app which requires in app purchases to unlock some features.

Included in this update is the first selfie and flashlight app for Microsoft Band as well. I think that getting your first flashlight app means you have made it as a platform doesn't it?

As you take a look at these don’t forget to review all of our Microsoft Band related coverage here at the SuperSite.
