Using Apps Corner In Windows Phone 8.1

Many times it happens that we share our Windows Phone with friends, family, co-workers, but due to privacy concerns, we don’t want to display all apps to the person. In others words, if you want to show only few apps to the one to whom you show your phone. For such cases, Apps Corner is the prefect tool for you. Apps Corner is a native Windows Phone feature that allows you to pick and display only some apps when you launch it. So when you give your phone to somebody, launch the Apps Corner mode, and you’re good to go.

Apps Corner is also beneficial for multiple user accounts on the same phone. So if you’re concerned that some one could tweak your phone settings without your permissions, this features makes you safer – just enable this feature when you’re not using your phone.

Here is the quick guide on how to set up Apps Corner in your Windows Phone:
