App Recommendations

Let's start one of these..  We have great apps too!!

 

Weather -

 

For inormation completeness, Accuweather is pretty great however the app performance is pretty sub-par and it loads really slowly.

 

As far as a mix of good looks, great performance and even better Live Tile, I have to give it to WeatherFlow.   Now it isn't free for about 15-20 seconds with it and you'll want to pay the cost of it.

 

Twitter - Rowi - 'nuff said.  Fast, fluid, great.  Rowi [lite] for those of you who enjoy free with ads.

 

Games - There's a bunch of Xbox Live games on the platform.   A number of decent ones have had price drops to 0.99$ recently.  You can find em listed here -  http://www.wpcentral.com/angry-birds-and-six-other-xbox-live-games-windows-phone-get-permanent-price...

Re: App Recommendations

Some of my apps will echo those already listed, but my most used apps are:

 

Weave - News/RSS reader, very quick to update even with hundreds of unread news items and formatting of articles is generally very good

 

ESPN - Not much to say, great sports app for checking scores and game highlights.  My only wish is that they can add a Live tile/notifications or the ability to pin our favorite teams.

 

PrimeTV - Nice TV app to keep track of your favourite shows.  Good Live tile which updates to your next episode throughout the week.

 

Carbon - Twitter client.  I've used Birdsong and Mehdoh and found both nice as well, but I like Carbon the best for it's speed and features (in line images are cool).

 

4th & Mayor - Foursquare app, made by a MS employee and has better performance that the official app (although arguably not as nice looking).

 

WeatherMaster - Nice weather app.  As far as I know it is the only app which has a GPS location that can follow you on the Live tile which is handy during the week where it will switch from my home to work locations automatically.

 

Parcel Tracker - Track delivery of packages from any shipping service with live tile and notifications.

 

MyStocks Portfolio - Stock tracking app with Live tile for my employers stock price (Free version).

 

Also, a few of my favorite games at the moment:

 

AlphaJax

Wordament - Highly recommended, free and soon to be Live enabled as well

Rocket Riot

Orb

Trine's Hangman

Tentacles
