One of the best thing about Android OS is that it let us install an app directly if we are having the APK file of that app or game. I have posted earlier how you can have the backup of your Android apps and transfer them on your computer.

Windows Phones are also getting popularity these days as major brands like Nokia is coming out with some high-end Windows Phones. Also, recently Microsoft announced the Windows Phone 8.1 which is going to bring lots of new features on Windows Phones. Hope it will help Microsoft in getting more Windows Phone users.
