    How about envision? It’s a basecamp client, see http://www.envisionhq.com

    Facebook app. Even though it’s built in to the OS in peoples hub, I prefer having it as a standalone experience. Plus, the app looks great even if it’s missing a few features that its Android and iPhone siblings have

    Cocktail Flow. Along with Flixter these two applications are the best examples of beautiful “WP7 style” applications on the marketplace.

    Check out Weave – the UI is particularly good-looking, and embraces the WP7 design philosophy!

    There’s also a cool app called Soothr which is similar to the Ambiance iPhone app. The interface is not the best out there, but the sounds are great and the functionality is all there.

  • Atta

    There is actually an integrated app for YouTube it’s called “YouTube by lazyworm”

    we buy this focus is there any app to play the farmville because adobe flash dont work on this phone

  • bull2dog

    Very disappointed with the apps. So many are just “fluff”, especially
    all the free ones. No Flash, no eReader. My friend has Droid 2, better apps.
    Had phone 6 wks – losing it’s luster.

  • Solartoy

    I personally like TinyText. Simple and effective text messaging app that pulls my contacts from facebook.

    I’d recommend Pencilio for people who like to carry a sketchpad around.

  • rx

    For those who want to read “.TXT” books on their window phone, I recommend the app “TXT Reader”. It sells for 2 dollars, but has all the funtions for its trial version. Definitely the best of the kind in Microsoft Marketplace until now.

  • Carsonabigdog

    cccccoooooolllllllll

  • http://phoenix2life.blogspot.com phoenix2life

    Awesome list. musiXmatch Lyrics is such a cool idea. Love to know lyrics for songs playing. It is awesome.

    Other free apps I use and love are Samsung Now, Microsoft Tag Reader, Engadget Reader.

    Looking forward for the Windows Phone 7 update and related apps from that update.

  • http://www.facebook.com/loryl Loryl June

    except you cant have your own ringtone, and i dont think they’ll ever update that and its really annoying

    • BradM

      I was quite angry about my purchase. Got pissed multiple times, but then just did the unlock thing so i could finally get some peace of mind. Also can change my accent colors to whatever I want!! woohoo!!

    Check out the TigerText app for free texting and chatting with your friends. New version just uploaded to Windows marketplace

    I wish they would port some real VOIP apps like Vopium, nimbuzz, fring or truphone.. Desparately waiting for one..

  • Yellowjeff

    App>Photo>MyComic

    I recommend a awsome free apps Mycomic,
    it’s just cool to put subtiles or talking bubble on photos.

  • BradM

    Good list of must haves.
    **Check out TopApps, better marketplace search b/c it puts highest rating apps/games on top. Filter by Category – pretty easy and useful.
    Here are apps/games I enjoy: Crackdown 2 (fun base defense game), Weave is a pretty good news app. Dog Whistle 7, one frequency only females can hear…lol, too funny. Monopoly (a classic), Freecell, Crosswords, Constitution app (pretty cool), US Congress app w/ all members of Congress detailed out. 3D brain app is nice – details the sections and operations of the brain, along w/ other useful info. Periodic Table Pro – just in case you like having that stuff available.
    *There are definitely a lot now, and the number keeps on growing. Something for everyone… but they do need to open up more functionality to the developers…because otherwise, we’ll end up with 50 of each type of app/game idea out there.

  • Racher5

    Its a Great Start

  • Modean2525

    A good start. But if you like Star Trek, download the Star Date app: http://social.zune.net/redirect?type=phoneApp&id=caf99ae4-6d3d-e011-854c-00237de2db9e

    omg I am a ringtone fanatic! I want my ringtones or music ringtones and this phone sucks when it comes to ringtones!!!! Phone is nice but without personal ringtones its just a phone.

    • Joshua Folkerts

      There is too. not available yet but you can download windows phone manager and do it there. people, stop freaking out.

    Microsoft seem to just be being Microsoft with Windows Phone. I mean… every other OS has a way of of having an MP3 ringtone. There isn’t even an app for it. Let me guess… DRM? I wonder if they’ll update it so that you can only use WMA ringtones. That is the kind of company Microsoft are. Also… they need to stop blocking Windows Server, as it took me 45 mins to sync my phone, due to driver and program issues. And now it’s pointless cos they have no purpose. FFS!

  • Smit

    I think moneyManager (by Punit) is one of the best apps for managing expenses. It’s new and developer has been trying best to regularly update the application with features requested through email. Recently managed to put in my Easter trip expenses and it worked well on my HTC HD7.. I think the list needs to be revisited as this is way too old (Nov 2010)

  • JKJH

    not to forget “MagikMail” which adds visual voice mail to WP7

  • William Howell

    Must check out Speed Dial Executive — for quicker access to making calls or texting — and the trial is fully functional

  • Idkaidek77

    Add to this list (GPS My Way), it is really a good app

  • http://www.enterakt.com Shobz

     i can’t wait to try these apps once i get my hands on a WP7 device.

  • Savercoupon304

    I just tried the new pool plus friends online multiplayer game. Really cool, a must download.

  • android lover

    windows phone 7 just sucks

    • Samuraistrikemike

      sorry but I have never had an app force close like I did every day on my Nexus 1. It is a much cleaner os that actually works 

  • tropaz

    You should definitely check out Sleep Bug. Weather you want to fall asleep to weather sounds, horror, sci-fi, jungle or city Sleep Bug has it all. I just love it!!

  • http://blog.robdolin.com/ Rob Dolin

    Instead of Foursquare, you should have 4th and Mayor.  It’s a great WinPhone client for Foursquare.

    • http://twitter.com/_hybridatomsk Hybridatomsk.

      4th & Mayor actually isn’t that great. It’s better to use Foursquare. But then again neither are them are accurate in locating the exact address of where you are. 

  • DarrenUtd

      The iPhone is probably about your educational level. I understand lots of other five year olds get quite excited by those rows of tiles too.

  • Tommio29

  • raj kumar

    how long you will include adobe reader as killer app. where is the dropbox,autocad,ps,and teamviewer.

    I dig Soothr. Let’s you mix different sounds together to create whatever atmosphere you like. Use it to sleep all the time, and at work helps drown out everyone else around me.
