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 :)

gReadie (£1.99) best Google Reader app by far. Has live notification.
WeatherBug (free) best weather app and has live tile.

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.

Shopping List is great I use it every week. I also like Level, 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

nice heads up on the beezz. I just opened my windows 7 htc surround. I think netflix may be the best app so far for me. is it just me or is the youtube not really an app, but launches you in the browser?

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.

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