Default [Q] Installing apps from Windows phone store

Hi, Everyone.
I just got a Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 for work/personal use and wanted to download a turn-by-turn navigation for it. For some reason, Waze was not available for download from the Market Place and all other navigation apps did not give you turn by turn navigation. I use google maps on my galaxy s4, and it gives you a turn by turn on the screen. Is there a way to download apps from windows phone store to the tablet to use? Is there an alternative store to windows store? Also, would you recommend any other apps to use with the ToughPad?
Thank you for your help.

I like Here Maps - dunno about navigation though.

Thank you for your response.
I downloaded Here Maps. It shows a map, but does not do a turn by turn navigation, like tomtom or google maps on the whone or waze does.

Short answer: No.

Longer answer: Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 are not the same OS. You're doing the equivalent of asking whether there's a way to run iPhone apps on your Mac. Just... no.

Actual answer: I don't actually know of any turn-by-turn apps for "real" Windows. Most people use their phones for that...
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.


Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
