Orange to give its Windows Phone customers a surprise free app on Windows Marketplace every day throughout July

1st July 2011, London - Orange today announced that it is working in conjunction with Microsoft to give its Windows Phone pay monthly and pay as you go customers a free app every day in July.

For customers new to apps or simply wanting to extend their collection, the move will provide them with the perfect opportunity to try a series of premium pre-paid apps, spanning everything from games to travel information to sport.

All customers with an Orange Windows Phone can download the free apps from the exclusive ‘Orange Selects' folder on Windows Marketplace. Here they will see a selection of the best apps, with the top app available to download for free - just for that day. This list will change every day, with the customer able to download a total of 31 individual apps worth more than £70.
