For more free mobile apps: 50 Best Free Apps for Windows Phone 7

Ah, the joy of free mobile apps...

Forget the iPhone with its incessant bragging about oceans of mobile apps available. If you've got a cell phone loaded with Windows Mobile, there are many mobile apps available for you as well. There might not be an "app for everything" since Microsoft has only about 15% of the amount of mobile apps Apple has available -- which Microsoft is trying to change with the new Windows Phone 7 Series.

But there are some great mobile apps to help you save money, time, patience, and to have fun. All from your mobile device that used to only be a phone.

Without further ado, here are 50 of the best free applications you'll find for the Windows Mobile platform, which is conveniently categorized but not necessarily in a prioritized order:

Personal Productivity

1) Skyfire Mobile Web Browser

Tired of web pages that don't load right on mobile phones? With this they'll appear just like they would on a PC, including Flash, Silverlight, and videos.

2) Opera Mobile Web Browser

Save favorite sites to speed dial, sync bookmarks with your desktop, and use tabbed browsing.

3) Fusion Voicemail Plus
