A look at the great built-in apps in Windows 10

We’re three days to our Windows 10 launch! Today, we’re sharing more about the great Windows 10 built-in apps like Photos, Maps, Mail and Calendar, Groove, and Movies & TV*. This family of apps shares an elegant look and feel and work consistently across all your Windows 10 devices.

Put your best photos forward with Windows 10. The new Photos app makes sense of your growing collection of photos, getting them organized and easy to navigate. You can sort your collections of photos by date for fast access.

The app will create albums of your life events, showcasing your best shots to help you tell a great story. With one click of a button you can count on auto-enhance to do expert touch-ups on the photos you take and keep on your Windows 10 device, and rest easy knowing that every photo is safely backed up with a full-resolution copy in your OneDrive online storage**. Once your photo has been edited to your liking you can easily share it via email with your friends and family, even set the photo as your lock screen or as your desktop background.
Maps on Windows 10 helps you navigate your world with the information that matters most to you. It’s a new application that works great on all screen sizes, and combines the best of Bing Maps and HERE Maps. Pin your favorite locations to your Start menu for quick and easy access, or add them to your list of favorites – and Maps on Windows will sync them across your all your Windows devices.

The share option allows you to share a specific location with a friend via email or to your OneNote. With the app you get up-to-the-minute traffic information, rich local search results, and robust public transportation options, with new features included like guided turn-by-turn navigation that works even when you’re offline. We’ve also added the Me Tile so you can find your way back home from everywhere. Discover the world in breathtaking hi-fidelity aerial and street-side views, with Maps in Windows 10.
