The WP7 Marketplace now has over 25,000 apps in it. But is there quality amongst all that quantity?
Back when I first got my HTC Mozart, I compared WP7 apps to iPhone apps. Now, more than 7 months later, it's time to revisit the list and update the apps I had, the apps I now have, and the apps I still want.
(It should be noted that every WP7 listed is personally recommended by yours truly, and the apps listed here make up about 90% of the apps I actually have on my phone.)
The apps (or equivalents) that I already had
|Australia Post||Australia Post|
|Weather||The Weather Channel|
|World Clock||World Clock|
|Flight Control||Flight Control|
The apps (or equivalents) I have found since
|Google Maps||gMaps Pro|
|NAB||NAB website pinned to Start|
|Angry Birds||Angry Birds|
|Plants vs Zombies||Plants vs Zombies|
Apps I believe to be unique to WP7
Apps (or equivalents) I cannot find on WP7
Overall, I'm impressed with the speed in which the Marketplace is growing, and that several of my wishlist apps have been delivered. I'm still waiting eagerly for some of my frequently accessed iPhone apps, with a priority on LogMeIn and Citrix to access my home and work PCs, Quota to manage my bank accounts, CityLink and Myki accounts, etc, and Qrank as it's the best trivia game I've ever played.
