    WebApps is an "app store" full of web apps that are made from html5 code, meaning that these apps run the exact same UI as their mobile sites. The good thing about this store is that many of these apps found are either not available in the WP Store or are really bad. And they take up no memory whatsoever. So please check it out, and feel free to comment what you like/dislike about it. I find this app especially useful for saving memory on my phone.

    I am confused. Can you elaborate please on what exactly this does? So it just loads mobile friendly webpages, or actual apps? If apps, what are some "apps"?

    It gives you a new "store" of apps that are better versions of mobile sites, i.e. ESPN, Facebook, LivingSocial. They are web apps, hence the name.

    Search for WEBAPPS in the Windows Phone Store. On the surface, I give this 5 out of 5 marks, but can't upload photos in Google+.

    Why 5 out of 5 ?
    I can now pin some of the apps that I have been missing since I moved from Android. This is definitely one slick app !

    Give it a try.

    The best part about the web apps is that it gives a better icon then a snapshot of the webpage when you pinned it.

    Hi, I'm one of the devs of this app. We are working on getting a few more features into the WP8 version first and we plan to backport to WP7 after that - hopefully within the next few weeks.
