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!

I think the AsciiCamera app is really fun. It basically takes a picture and turns it into an ascii art.

This one isn't out at the moment, but I use it on my Android Handset, Kindle for WP7 looks pretty good.

Anyway I have these apps, some may be duplicating functionality I already have on the HD7 but i'm looking at which one has the best functions:

Adobe Reader
Attentive Phone (HTC)
Facebook
Flashlight (HTC)
Groceries (Tesco, Allows my to order Groceries on the go, UK only)
ITN News
KAYAK
Last.FM
Level (Microsoft)
Lists (HTC)
London Tube
Ministry Of Sound
My WP7 Idea (Great App for suggesting WP7 features you want, a little sluggish but refreshes every time you load it)
Notes (HTC)
Poynt
Shazam
Shopping List (Microsoft)
SteamCommunity
Stocks (Microsoft)
Tesco Real Food
Translator (Microsoft)
Unit Converter
Waterstones (Great app for ordering books, UK only)
Weather (Microsoft)
World Clock (Microsoft)
Youtube (HTC)

There is a new youtube app out called lazytube.

It has your subscriptions and your fav videos, you can also post comments. It looks OK but I would still like to see Microsoft take an attempt at a youtube app. I've just bought it and it doesn't include your video's yet or thumbs up and down but the free app before it was updated often.

I managed to get the xbox 360 version before it went live and thought it was brilliant, recently bought the WP7 version as well.

Since this is about apps, there's a Ustream client out now it seems.

ustream app has been out for a while in the US (since launch) and its utter crap.. have they fixed anything? don't see an update for mine.. i've only been able to watch a few shows, it mostly fails or won't watch anything at all - never been able to see anything live, just pre-recorded.

These are my personal favorites :

ilomilo the game. Really simple but addictive game.
London Tube. A simple app to check the Tube Status for London, plus has a station search and map.
TouchXplorer. A really pretty and functional File manager. ( Only works with Dev phones though )
Twitter, IMDB, Flixster and Facebook apps, obviously.
And Wordlist. A Vocabulary builder for entrance exams like GMAT etc. ( DISCLAIMER : I really like this app because I developed this myself! I don't intend to be sneaky. :-) And yes, it's a Paid app. :-( )

I think Polyglot is a fairly decent translator app, compared to Microsofts own one this supports dozens of languages.

I've been using BringCast - can download from the app without syncing. Excellent app, and multiple downloads will be available in next update I'm told from the developer.
ScoreMobile got released and it is by far the best sport app out there. Live tile scores and push notifications are in the works I've heard from the developer also.
Slickdeals is okay (3/5). Can't really get to the website when I click on a deal.
Tile Notes - (4.5/5) - You can put a stickie as a tile on your home screen - very useful!
Bing Splash - 4/5 - displays the bing image of the day as a tile

New Media Volume Manager app, I haven't tried it yet queued up for d/l when my phone syncs again later tonight but they say it works well. Lets you set the media volume for games, etc which should also leave things like ringer and alarm alone.

This is good for me since I want music/vids and games lower than the ringer/alarm volume.
