    If you're mad about windows phone and want to keep up with the latest news and app reviews for your windows device there is no better place than windows phone central. Personally, I've found the forums to be really helpful when it comes to issues with xbox accounts and general phone usage. I'd say that about 80% of the apps I've downloaded and find myself using a lot come as a direct result of reading the app review on windows phone central then popping into the app store and giving it a go. This is a really great app and one well worth having
