We’ve already talked about how to personalize and several of the great features, but we haven’t talked about apps that help you personalize.  Here’s a list of a few apps, that will help you make you’re HTC Windows Phone even more personal, and fashionable than it already is.

I can honestly tell you, the Windows HTC 8X takes personalizing a cell phone to another level.  I’ve heard and read that some feel there’s not enough apps in the Windows App Store.  I don’t feel that way, as I still haven’t touched a quarter of the apps, I have had every app that I actually need on my cell phone, plus all these awesome apps that you cannot get in with Android or iOs.

I am perfectly happy with the number of great apps that help me add a little more personality to my HTC Phone.
