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
|Mobile eBay app
|Helps with random drawings for door prize at user group events (if the attendees registered with EventBrite).
|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.
|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.
|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.”
|This app is not very useful if you don’t have a Microsoft Store near you, but I’m hoping it improves w/ time.
|This is the Twitter app I use on my WP7.
|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.
|Simple IP display tool.
|Napoleon Dynamite soundboard for irritating other people, or for the occasional sprinkling of awesomeness in conference rooms.
|QR reader, not as cool as the logo or the name implies.
|Streaming goodness (provided you have decent bars of signal).
|Portal 2 Soundbox
|Soundboard for the Portal 2 game.
|REALTOR.com Real Estate Search
|See homes that are for sale. Really nice interface.
|Get to da choppa!
|SIX Stop Watch
|Very clean and nice stopwatch app.
|You can find some awesome deals on here.
|Springboard Series for Office
|IT Pro deployment and management content for Microsoft Office.
|Springboard Series for Windows
|Materials and resources for IT Pros for Microsoft Windows.
|Very nice app for showing the phone specs, firmware versions, and even .NET CLR version installed on the phone.
|Microsoft Tag Reader
|Tag reader for the ‘pretty’ (colored triangle) tag codes. I used this for my webcomic earlier this year.
|A soundboard for The Simpsons. Easy to navigate, though the sound levels are kind of up and down.
|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.
|Convert length, temperature, speed, time, volume, angle, weight or area.
|Weather from www.weather.com
|Pretty basic app. You’re probably better off just hitting the website in a browser.
|See what junk is for sale today on woot.com, shirt.woot, wine.woot, kids.woot, and sellout.woot.
|Watch YouTube videos on your phone – straight-forward stuff.
