Whenever someone starts out with a new device (iPad, smartphone, etc.) the hardest part is learning all the ins and outs. After that comes the inevitable question, “What apps should I download?” Well if you like gaming, check here เกมส์สล็อตออนไลน์ที่สนุกของไทย.
Apps are largely an extension of the person using the phone (job-related, social apps, time-wasters, etc.) With that thought in mind, below is a list of what’s on my Windows Phone 7, which happens to be an HTC Arrive on Sprint. If you are looking for games, check this one out.
– All apps listed below are FREE unless marked with “$” symbol.
– Items in BOLD are docked in my Start page.
– I haven’t listed any games on this site.
Your apps: If there’s a WP7 app that you think should be in the list, please add it to the comments below.
The Apps On My Windows Phone 7:
What It’s Used For
|QR Code Reader|
|Dictionary.com – Dictionary||Reference|
|eBay||Mobile eBay app|
|ESPN ScoreCenter||Sports scores|
|EventBrite Raffle||Helps with random drawings for door prize at user group events (if the attendees registered with EventBrite).|
|Evernote||Like OneNote, but not as nice. Syncs with my desktop and iPad though, and you can use the web interface too. Great for organizing notes on multiple devices.|
|Fart Nukes Free||For irritating other people.|
|Flickr||Links to my pictures online.|
|GasBuddy – Find Cheap Gas Prices||I use this app a lot! It’s updated regularly, and sometimes I’ll find gas for $0.10-$0.15 cheaper per gallon only a few blocks off the beaten path.|
|The Home Depot||Handy price lookups for parts around the house.|
|IMDb Movies, TV & Celebrities||Almost every time we go out to dinner and I hear, “What’s the name of that girl who was in the movie with what’s-his-face with the dog from outer space?” Now we know.|
|Lynkee||Barcode reader. I’m trying to find a nice reader that does barcodes and QR codes and Microsoft Tag codes. Haven’t found the perfect one yet.|
|Microsoft Partner Info||Information resource for Microsoft Partners (promos, news, videos, etc.). Think “Eric Ligman inside your phone.”|
|Microsoft Store||This app is not very useful if you don’t have a Microsoft Store near you, but I’m hoping it improves w/ time.|
|moTweets||This is the Twitter app I use on my WP7.|
|MyComic||Put comic captions on your photos.|
|My Contact Info Free||Lets you create a QR code with your contact info.|
|My Home Server||Manage your WHS 2011 box from your WP7, stream music, videos and look at pics. Very handy.|
|MyIP||Simple IP display tool.|
|Napoleon Dynamite||Napoleon Dynamite soundboard for irritating other people, or for the occasional sprinkling of awesomeness in conference rooms.|
|NeoReader||QR reader, not as cool as the logo or the name implies.|
|Netflix||Streaming goodness (provided you have decent bars of signal).|
|Portal 2 Soundbox||Soundboard for the Portal 2 game.|

|Microsoft Tag Reader||Tag reader for the ‘pretty’ (colored triangle) tag codes. I used this for my webcomic earlier this year.|
|The Simpsons||A soundboard for The Simpsons. Easy to navigate, though the sound levels are kind of up and down.|
|Tip Pronto||Figure the tip / split the bill app. Doesn’t let you put in the pre-tax amount though.|
|Tools for Phone 7||Lots of weird stuff here. Password generator, way to fake a phone call, GPS, Morse Code, etc. Weirdest is “Teen Repel” which generates a 17 KHz tone.|
|Unit Converter||Convert length, temperature, speed, time, volume, angle, weight or area.|
|Weather||Weather from www.weather.com|
