  • magicalclickmagicalclick Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Dog-A-Pedia by 8th grader? Oh man, I need to catch up.

  • It's nice to see a NON-Xbox live game being featured somewhere.  I think there is some policy somewhere that says to only feature xbox live games even though there are a lot of non xbox live licenced apps out there that are great like the chickens'n'vixens game.

    It gives me hope that my laser puzzle game might one day be featured... it's called 'Reflections' and 'Reflections Free' in case you want to check it out. Smiley

    It's nice to see some quality apps/games being produced.  Hopefully at MIX we will see some awesome changes to the platform and hopefully more things that the developers can utilize.


    @LanMark, just got your game looks cool, can't wait to try it out.

    Hey Laura, maybe it's time to show 10 apps in 6 minutes!  At the rate the apps are being added to the Marketplace it will take you a life time to just scratch the surface. Smiley

    Hi. great show again. one for a future show. 'Where Did I Take That' in the photos section. great app, free, no more do i look at a pic on my phone and say where did i take that?

  • Parachute reminds me of an old Atari game.  I think it was Skydive or something like that.  You had to parachute your little 8 bit stick figure onto a platform.  The platform could be one of two sizes and moving or stationary depending on the settings.

  • These are some cool apps. It would be great to see them all entered in the WP7 App Challenge. Somebody is going to win! http://wp7challenge.com

    @SheldonS - that Atari game exists in the WP7 Market Place, search for Sky Diver Classic ;-)

  • Console.WriteLine(Chicks'n'Vixens == Angry Birds);

    >> True

  • Windows phone Apps really need to improve... a lot!!

    Please have a look at "Zen News Reader". I hope you'll find this interesting.

  • DanDan

    How about checking out The Onion 7 - it's getting great reviews in the marketplace!
