How many Windows Phone apps do you need to get started? Well, we’ve gathered 15 Best Windows Phone Apps Of This Year 2014. This year 2014 we’ve picked out some of the very best Windows Phone apps for your new devices.

While the folks at Netflix recently updated the Windows Phone version of their streaming video app, the team at Hulu doesn’t seem to care about their Windows Phone port of Hulu Plus.
