    [Marketing] Find Great Apps for Your Nokia Lumia Phone with AppSocial
    If you’re in the market for a Windows 8 phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a great one to pick. 'One of the things I find is missing about mobile app stores is the ability to find suggestions from people you know and trust. Sure, an app may have 1,000 reviews, but you don’t know who these people are. For example, I’m more likely to trust a review about a social media app from someone who is a social media professional vs. an average user. This is where AppSocial by Nokia comes in. AppSocial is exclusively for Nokia Lumia users on the Windows 8 platform. Silly, yes.
