Microsoft has placed great emphasis on integrating functionality into the Windows Phone operating system. But just like iOS and Android, apps are the easiest way to add functionality not built into the operating system. In this tutorial, you will learn how to install apps on Windows Phone.
It’s important to note that apps on Windows Phone are basically the same as any other smartphone, except they use pivot and panorama. These pivots and panoramas sometimes hide other options and more information, so if you can’t find a feature or find yourself in an unfamiliar part of the app, keep scrolling until you find the app you’re looking for or the option you want. we are trying to use.
Unlock your Windows Phone 8 by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. If you have a PIN or password, you must enter it when you remove the lock screen.
Search for the app and tap to open it. It may be at the top or bottom of your Start Screen, depending on the device and carrier your device was purchased from to work with. In our example, the Windows Phone Store is at the bottom left of our Start Screen.
You can also open the Windows Store from the app list by placing your finger on the right side of the Start Screen and then tapping from the app list.
If you’re looking for a specific app, tap once at the bottom of your screen in the Windows Phone Store.
Like most Windows Phone apps, the Windows Phone Store is a panoramic experience. This means you can swipe from left to right for more options. A single swipe will show you the Windows Phone Store’s featured app, a second swipe from there will show you a list of featured apps. Swiping again reveals a “games” area, and a final swipe reveals the featured music section.
Of course, you can browse all of them by tapping their category in the first left panel of the Windows Phone Store.
Enter the name of the application into the search engine. In our example, we’re looking for the iHeartRadio app.
Just like when searching on Google or Bing, the Windows Phone Store will bring up the relevant results of your search above the fold. Exactly because we wrote iHeartRadio, it is at the top of our list. this is the most relevant to your search.
Faucet . Swiping from left to right on any app page also shows the latest user reviews, app screenshots, and related apps.
If the app requires permissions, you will be asked to authorize the app for those permissions. In our example, iHeartRadio uses location data, so the Windows Phone Store asked us to allow it before it loads.
If it’s okay, tap it.
Windows Phone will now take you to the app list and install the app. A small progress bar will show if the download has finished. When that bar is gone, tap the app’s tile to open it.
To add the app to your Start Screen, tap and hold the app’s tile to reveal a pop-up menu. Then tap .
From this menu you can also uninstall the app, share it with other Windows Phone users and uninstall it.
