Early examples of Windows Phone 7 apps

Early examples of Windows Phone 7 apps
It has become clear that if you want to have a successful operating system (be it mobile or not), you also need to have an extensive application catalog accompanying it. Judging by its actions, Microsoft seems to have understood that and it will surely invest a lot in order to attract as many Windows Phone 7 developers as possible.

We have already seen some 3D games run on WP7, although we weren't exactly stunned. Now it's time to check out some other, simpler apps that developers are currently working on. First off, a jogging app has been written, which is linked to the Bing API so it can track the distance traveled by the user. Another app is Alien Sokoban. It appears to be a simple game where you need to collect some gems with the least moves you can. Pretty Windows-like, according to us. Other products are a weather app with a nice cartoon interface, a horoscope app, basic paint program, screenshot maker and an app that will let you create Microsoft Tags with your phone.

Of course, these aren't that impressive at all, but still every mobile OS should have such simple offerings. And everyone needs to start somewhere, isn't that right?

This is a sad example of things to come from WP7... looks just as "good" as apps on my TP2

Looks like Windows 3.1 from back in the day.

I really think WP7 will piss of the business users with this interface

My how they forget that windows 7 can use Xda tools and had that demo of the full 3d diablo like game that was so uber cool only a few months ago. Sounds like this was written by part of the "I love iphone" coalition, trying to trash competition.

Is this really come from winmo 7 ? what a pity. I'd expected more impresive than winmo 6.5. What a waste of money if we buy that kind of product.

yea! I'm excited with winmo 7 but that screenshots kinda didn't do the justice, they all look basic and square-yyy... i guess, it's still early stage for winmo 7 apps.

It's only one aspect of the OS...the weather app is actually kinda innovative. The same makers of Windows 7 which is a pretty good OS I'm sure have some tricks up their sleeve. OS hasn't even launched yet...and already the bashin has started. I don't think changin the interface will take away from the business capabilities. I agree with the earlier poster...based on the biased comments made...we must be dealin members of the Steve Jobs Society.
