A lot of Windows 10/Windows 8 users don’t take advantage of the Microsoft Store. And that’s a shame because there are some apps on the store that make life a whole lot easier; especially if you use your laptop for work. And the Microsoft Store comes pre-installed on computers that are running Windows 10, as well as some versions of Windows 8.
You would be surprised by how much a dedicated app on your PC changes the email experience. Blue Mail is a great app that allows you to add and easily switch between multiple email accounts. One of the great things about Blue Mail is the desktop notifications that you get even after you’ve closed the app. Of course, this app also comes with a dark mode option.
The Your Phone app allows you to connect your phone to your PC. It’s great because it allows you to access your phone without having to reach around to grab it. You can finally fully charge your phone. The app’s features include access to the most recent pictures in your gallery from your phone, making calls right from your computer and access to your phone’s notifications. The set-up process is a bit long—you have to get the My Phone Companion on your phone—but the app is well worth it.
If you already use WhatsApp Web on your computer, you’re going to love this. It is a more comfortable alternative. And if you don’t use WhatsApp, you should consider getting WhatsApp Desktop anyway. It allows you to have a conversation without having to keep switching back and forth between your computer and your phone. This app also allows notifications while it’s minimized, which is great for holding conversations right from your PC.
