    I was wondering if there is a wide range of applications available on the lumia? Things like Facebook, candy crush and other freebies.

    Hey Jamie,

    There are 160,000 apps available in Windows Phone Store – this certainly covers most of the essential apps, but there are still apps missing as you would find on Android or iPhone.

    Facebook is available as a free download, but it is also built into the phone (as is the case with Twitter, Skype, Office). Top free apps for the Lumia 520 include WhatsApp, eBay, Kik Messenger, Viber, Shazam, VEVO, Temple Run.

    Unfortunately Candy Crash is not available for Windows Phone.

    Official Instagram, SnapChat and Vine are not available for Windows Phone. However, free third party apps are available, including Instance, SwapChat and Viner.

    Hope this helps!
