It often happens that we share our Windows Phone with friends, family, work colleagues, but due to privacy reasons, we do not want to show all applications to a person.In other words, if you only want to show a few apps to whomever you are showing your phone to. In such cases, Apps Corner is the perfect tool for you. Apps Corner is a built-in Windows Phone feature that allows you to select and display only certain apps at startup. So when you give your phone to someone, launch Apps Corner mode and you’re done.
Apps Corner is also useful for multiple user accounts on the same phone. Therefore, if you are concerned that someone might change your phone’s settings without your permission, this feature will make you more secure – just enable this feature when you are not using your phone.
