Question

Posted

In line with the two other threads about iPhone and Android, we might as well get the ball rolling with the Windows Phone 7 apps!

Can this be stickied? [img]http://www.neowin.net/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif[/img]

Ones I'm using currently:

Apps:

[b]Shazam (free)[/b] - most will be familiar with this already, free app that will recognise music by recording a clip and trying to match it to a song.
[b]Attentive Phone (free)[/b] - nice app to do things like setting the phone to mute ringing when flipping it, or turn it into pocket mode to ring louder when in a pocket/bag
[b]IMDB (free)[/b] - really nice looking way to access IMDB, also shows US movie times and shows your closest cinemas on bing maps associated with your current location
[b]Photo Enhancer (free)[/b] - this htc app can apply extra cool filters to photos taken (black & white, vintage, auto contrast adjustments etc).
[b]Sound Enhancer (free)[/b] - another free htc app that can add dolby mobile & srs enhancement effects to audio and video sound, if you have the headphones in you can also manually configure the sound via an equalizer.

Games:

[b]Unite (free)[/b] - accelerometer based labyrinth game from Microsoft Game Studios, only the goal is to join multiple balls into one ball. Very good considering it's free!

Pretty sure Attentive Phone, Photo Enhancer and Sound Enhancer are HTC apps only, and they're not available to (other manufacturers) handets. Certainly couldn't find them on marketplace.


I'll add [b]Cocktailflow[/b] though. SO BEAUTIFUL.

Ah I see, which handset are you on? Is your hub any good? The HTC one seems absolutely purpose-less?

BTW, what is Cocktailflow for?

I'm waiting on a Dell Venue Pro (expecting it next week with any luck), and I don't think Dell actually did any OEM software whatsoever. The HTC one does seem a bit blah. LG's DNLA software is fairly nice.


Cocktailflow is an app for cocktails (duh :p), can go by name, ingredients etc. More information here; [url="http://cocktailflow.com/"]http://cocktailflow.com/[/url]

[b]IMDB[/b] is probably the best looking I've seen. The twitter and facebook apps are quite good but they come with the phone.

The marketplace should start to fill up to Christmas once developers have their hands on a device. I would like to see a better windows messenger app, a better youtube app, some better ways to upload to eg twitpic, multitasking and better text editing but the multitasking and better text editing is coming after Christmas, hopefully a youtube app comes soon unless they are going to have to wait for flash which is also coming after Christmas but there is plenty more to keep me satisfied.

Attentive Phone sounds awesome (it's just like the options HTC added to Windows Mobile 6.5) but can it actually do those things? Because WP7 can't multitask, ya know... so I don't see how it can handle those features, unless it is triggered when it detects an incoming call? Once I get my HD7 I'll try it for myself of course.

It can because it's an OEM app added by HTC (hence why the features are like the ones HTC added to WM6.5 :p). OEMs are allowed to bend rules and utilise APIs not available to most developers. It's also why it's only available on HTC handsets, and not Samsungs.

Weather (from Microsoft)
Sound Enhancer (HTC only) - Dolby Mobile makes it hard for me to believe that I'm listening to music through a headphone. Seriously feels like there are speakers surrounding me.
Flash Light (HTC only)
Shopping List (microsoft)
Lists (HTC)

Facebook, Twitter
World Clock
Level (to see if a surface is level)
Attentive Phone (HTC)

maybe I'm dumb... but I just downloaded the youtube app and can't make it work.

Well all it does is start m.youtube.com in the browser and can search and listen from there. but when I'm browsing normal web content in the browser and come across a youtube video... nothing happens. I've tried tapping it, double tapping it, hold my finger on it, etc.

Works fine for me. Are you wifi or 3g when surfing youtube? Hopefully we'll see an app to give a logged in experience a little bit easier but i'm SUPER happy youtube mobile works out of the box - especially logged in and favorited videos. The quality is also great but i haven't tried it over 3g, just wifi.

I really like IMDB, Netflix, Shazam and Seesmic. The Nasa Mars app is also pretty cool - being able to do the cataloging for mars data on the phone is pretty fun :)

Location Marker is a nice app. I use it often when hiking. It does however need placing manual pinpoint (only does in-place) and maybe an export function.

Torrent Buddy works as said, I would love to see that you can change speeds on it though. Other than that, works exactly as described.

WeatherBug is alright, doesn't work properly for me though. It doesn't seem to update properly, 3 degrees and sunny outside in BC? Don't think so.

[b]Shopping List [/b]is great I use it every week. I also like [b]Level[/b], which as you guessed it allows you to check if a surface or object is level. Both are free.

I am waiting for a usable LinkedIn app....

Beezz is the best app I've found so far. A sexy (and not slow) Twitter client with push for replies and DM's

Yes. What the YouTube app does, is that it lets you play videos from m.youtube.com. But when you launch it, it simply opens the browser.
