Hello. My name is Ramin and I have a question.
I have Nokia phone with Windows 8.1 and recently accidentally uninstalled some apps from the phone. I have tried to download them from Windows Store but unfortunately they are no longer available for my type of phone. Could you please let me know how can I retrieve these apps and from where?

Hi @Ramiram1

 

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. The problem you are going to have is Windows 8.1operating system is no longer supported. 

 

You may have noticed you were no longer receiving security updates and no further features to the device.  With Microsoft no longer supporting 8.1 Windows phones, it's unlikely you will be able to download any replacement applications to the phone.   However, it won't do any harm to see if there is anything available from the Microsoft store but with the applications having been updated and with your device not supported it will be unlikely.

Have you tried googling for the apps ?

Some apps can be sideloaded via apk files or similar but one does have to be careful downloading apps this way @Ramiram1

There maybe a forum of other owners who have workarounds or alternatives you can choose from. 

 

Can I assume you didn't create back ups that includes your apps ?
