Microsoft Gulf has added fresh applications to its Marketplace.  Microsoft Gulf in partnership with Prototype, a full service digital agency helping brands develop online marketing, web development and mobile solution strategies in the UAE, has released customer-built applications to benefit Windows phone users. Applications are available free of charge on Marketplace and are meant to make life easier for users.

New applications include the Time Out Dubai Restaurant application with Time Out reviews, search, and an inspire me screen to show restaurants for randomly selected criteria. The Aramex Application allows users to easily track and engage with the courier process so they can keep track of their shipment requests.

The mParc application is a fast-growing favorite and allows the user to automate data-entry for Dubai’s paid parking locations. The application then assembles the information into an SMS and allows the user to send. mParc is native only to Mango phone software and allows users to easily park their cars without worrying about the hassle of renewing their paid parking.

Microsoft is working on a number of additional applications to support Windows Phone users in their day-to-day life. All applications can be found on the Windows Marketplace for free download.'
