Well, I'm going to put the ones I'm using and liking for now:

Adobe Reader
Shazam
Translator (Microsoft)
Weather (Microsoft)
World Clock (Microsoft)
Youtube (HTC)


But I have to say....I'm waiting for a better Translator. I didn't like English > Chinese > English. :/ But then again, IRL it's difficult to translate, nevertheless.

These are my personal favorites :

ilomilo the game. Really simple but addictive game.


QFT. XD

MyComic

just know it from a friend, we love it very much.
and it's definetely one the best Free app in my phone.

I found someone test it:
http://mobilitydiges...(Fuze Mobility)


Oh yeah, I'm testing it out too and liking it! I wonder if they will improve though.

It's perfect for a crazy person like me, I like to doodle on the photos with photoshop and tah dah! There's this version to WP7.

Why not try Polyglot, I use that now rather than the Translator app that Microsoft put on the marketplace.

after using birdsong, beez only has the live tile thing going for it. once birdsong starts having the live tile i'll switch over.

- ztitch is pretty awesome, create panoramic photos
- windows phone news, weaves all wp7 news in one app much easier
- voice recorder, great app
- scoremobile, once it gets push/live info it'll be more awesome
- handyscan, comes in handy at times
- realtube, better youtube app doesn't find all the videos though
- tv show alert, doesn't load what a waste of my money (for some reason these tv show apps never work)

*trying out the trial version* Till now, sounds good to me! :D Thanks. I'll put some more difficult words afterwards....*evil laughter* Maybe Japanese too....



Another one that I'm trying when I'm bored at parties or waiting for my friends:

Svasti = rating 4.0 of 5.0

It's not the most useful app but it's fun and it's free so...downloaded it. It got those cute chinese motif style, the type I like. It's sort of prediction thing, to see if you'll have luck with your friends today, or family, or money etc. The down side of this program: I'm not sure if it's very accurate. XD

TuneIn Radio has made the hop from iOS to Windows Phone 7. The app supports over 40,000 AM and FM radio stations that also stream over the web, with the stations characterised by genre or searchable by call letters. Even better, as long as the station is broadcasting RDS information, TuneIn Radio will search it to see if the station is playing the song you want to hear.

Anyone know if there will be any decent GPS apps in the mix? Made the leap from iOS and am missing Navigon.

Cocktail Flow has to be the best looking app so far. Its usefulness is to be debated, but the design is gorgeous!
My LG Optimus 7 (and other LG owners) can download some great apps which are free from the LG Apps Store:

- Cocktail Flow
- Weather & Clock
- Today
- Toolbox. It has Level, Date calculator, Flashlight, Unit converter and many more.

My favorite and most used apps are:

- Weather Bug
- IMDB
- Shopping List
- Facebook. The official app is awesome

I haven't tried Lazytube but I will try soon as other have pointed out the ability to watch HD content from it.
