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.

I don't know why everybody miss RealTube. It allows you to watch videos from YouTube, DailyMotion, MSN Videos, Funny or Die etc. in HD quality.

I bought Remote Desktop.

It does allow you to view your pc but it has limitations:

1. It's really slow even on wifi.
2. You have to move the screen around, you can't move the mouse around it sticks in the middle of the screen.

I don't think phones are ready for this feature yet, maybe tablets with 4G but I can't do anything really productive using it so for £11.50 it's to expensive.

Lazytube does youtube video's well for me but the subscriptions doesn't work for me but the favs do. But Realtube does play it in HD quality unlike Lazytube.

^ 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.
Thanks guys... :-) I'll give London Travel a shot.


I'll be trying it out in London this Friday so that will be the real test.

The official Flickr app has been upgraded to 1.1 today which also brings Picture hub intergration. Now you can directly upload pictures from the hub right to flickr without starting the app.

The rest of the update covers a performance boost and also adds tag support.

It got me through this weekend in London just great! Needs bus support as well as support for the thames riverboat services, because without it it's not really London Travel, it's London Underground/DLR, but it's a great little app. Oyster balance on live tile would be nice as well.

The route planner has support for Bus and Coach, Riverboat, Tram, DLR and Overground Rail services as well.

Worked really well for me as well, I was able to plan my route from the train station where I live to the underground station near my destination.

My mate has an iPhone4 and has a cool (stupid really) app, called talking tom cat .. or something like that. I've had a quick look, but from what I can tell - it's only available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Anyone know if it (or something similar) is available for WP7?
