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)

Anyone own a WP7 device and live in Greece like me? I wanna know if they're able to actually buy apps from the marketplace or not.

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 don't have a ton of apps, but my favs are Shazam, iheartradio, imdb, The Weather Channel, facebook, Netflix. And as soon as B&N gets off their lazy bums and releases a nook WP7 app, that'll be on the list :p

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.

Pageone looks awesome, be great if we had something similar that wasn't crappy, in the UK :)


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 would say London Travel is better. It has live departure boards and oyster balance. Plus it looks better and works faster. It's £1.99 though. But I would say it's worth it.

agreed, I used to have London Tube installed but found London Travel was much better, the latest update added a route planner as well.
