StickyTiles (Free)
Live tiles are square, colored, and they remind us of Post It® – why not being able to personalize them and add notes to our Windows Phone 7 home screen?That is what Sticky Tiles does, and it makes it pretty simple: select a color for foreground and background, type your message and select the font size. Select if your tile also has a back that flips from time to time and type the back image.

Tap the pin and the note is on your home screen. Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezey!

Color selection could be easier with predefined colors and making front and back of the same color, also the slider for the font size is hard to tap, but overall this app is pretty simple and gets the job done well.

If you need personalized reminders or notes on your home screen, with Windows Phone 7 and Sticky Tiles, now you can!

Flight Monitor: track your flights with WP7 /2011/11/flight-monitor-track-your-flights-with-wp7.html /2011/11/flight-monitor-track-your-flights-with-wp7.html#comments Mon, 14 Nov 2011 03:42:37 +0000 bestwp7apps /?p=2263 Monitoring flights it’s a breeze with Windows Phone 7 and Flight Monitor.

Flight Monitor ($ 3.99, Trial)
Monitoring flights it’s a breeze with Windows Phone 7 and Flight Monitor.

Search for airline name and flight number and see what the status of your flight is. Simple, right? Wait, there’s more: Live Tiles!

The paid version of Flight Monitor allows you to pin to your start screen the flight you want to follow, and here is where the magic happens: the live tile will tell you how many minutes before the flight takes off, then give you an precise idea of where it is with a mini-map and in how much time it is expected to land, and finally the icon changes to indicate that the flight has landed. Perfect!

Bing provides all the info for the flights, and we were able to track US, European and intercontinental flights with no problem – which you don’t get with other flight track apps.

Flight Monitor loses half a star in our rating for the price: $3.99 seems an expensive tag price for a simple service – we are sure that the sales of the app could get a boost with a $ 1 or $ 2 price tag!

Another half star is lost in the poor search interface: too many clocks to get to the airline, and if you know a flight code it should be possible to enter it directly. Also a list of recent flights or favorites would complete this app.

Nonetheless, this is the best flight tracking app we have found on Windows Phone 7, so if you are flying or waiting for someone who does, check it out: you won’t be disappointed.

Bump Out (Free)
Bump out is a fun board game which is getting a lot great reviews on the Windows Phone 7 App Marketplace.

Be warned: this is not a soccer game, but a puzzle one: you have to clear all the colored soccer balls placed on the board on each level. Hitting the balls makes one of the two flying off the board; hit them all until there is only one.

Clearing the board requires strategy: the balls can only move horizontally or vertically on the board and you might remain with no moves left and still a lot of balls on the board. The handy undo option will help you backtrack your moves though, making most boards not frustrating.

Bump out has 150 Levels with a level-by-level mode and a timed mode; the boards are interesting and should keep you intrigued for a while. Graphics are basic (especially on menus) but do the job.

Bump Out is a recommended pastime for your WP7: check it out.

Clowning Around ($ 0.99, Trial)
Clowning Around is a smashing new game for Windows Phone 7 – fun and catchy, it is destined to climb the App Marketplace charts!

The circus is on and the clowns and are making their dive-in-a-barrelnumber, but… there are chains holding them and trampolines, traps, man-cannons and all sorts of obstacles.

Cut the clowns chains with the right timing and get them to the right barrel. Green clowns go in the green barrel, blu clowns in the blu ones and so on… you get the idea.

If you don’t want to spend the $1 right away, you can try Clown College as a warmup. It’s free and it gives you the first 15 levels for free. But, trust us, you will want to pay the $ 1 for the extra levels right away.

Clowning Around is just a gorgeous game, already a success on iPhone and Android is now delighting your Windows Phone.

The graphics are top notch, but the music jingle is really annoying: do your ears a favro and turn it off, it will ruin your experience.

Ace Viral got the inspiration from Cut the Rope, true, but mixed in multiple elements that will make it as fun and even more challenging.

Jake Poznanski, the developer of WP7 best sellers, incuding Solitaire, Mars Runner and Word Search, is back!

Crazy Casino is a simple casino game with Slots and Video Poker.

The gameplay is simple but entertaining just right: the chances of winning are high enough to keep you going and low enough not to get dull.

As you play, you earn tokens to unlock more slots and different poker game types. There is not too much brain to apply here, though: spin the wheel or hold the higher cards and tap again.

Graphics are super-solid (as usual), but sound could be better.

Crazy Casino is cute and fun game, but does not have a lasting appeal due to the limited modes available and its simplicity.

The author is synonym with solid games on Windows Phone 7, and the game is free, so you should definitely give it a tap.

new group* (Free)
One of the most useful features of Mango is the ability to pin custom app tiles to the home screen. New Group* will help you order and group your Windows Phone 7 start screen tiles.

You simply enter the name of the new group/category you want to create (for example games, utilities) and select Create Category, New Group will create a tile with that text in it, that you can place in your start screen where you need to make order.

That is it. Simple but powerful!

If you were expecting real folders, well then we have to ask to the Apollo team (the next version of the Windows Phone 7 OS).

The color of the tile will match your theme background; if you change theme you need to launch the app once to update the tiles’ color.

When you need to order the tiles on your home screen, new group is a great and free way to do it- tap it out to see.

Chromatic (Free)
Chromatic is the latest addition to the not so-crowded category of vertical shooters on WP7, and it comes down with a bang!

Waves of enemies of different shapes and colors come down the screen while you defend the bottom with your lonely gun, which fires shots in every direction you can tap.

You have a selection of different gun types: from the basic pistol to lasers, mines, spread guns, freeze and missile). Guns level up the more you use them, and you can equip multiple ones for specific battles, switching among them as you go – in our gameplay sometimes the guns got activated without control, though, which was somewhat annoying in the harder levels.

Gameplay is hectic and exciting; multiple waves of enemies come down really fast, forcing you to multi-tap and to make quick decisions on which enemy to take on first as well as which weapons to use.

Both game art and music are great, especially the gameplay music, which will ring in your head for quite a while after playing; social gaming features such as leaderboards complete a very solid package which gave us quite some fun.

The developer, StackPop Studios, offers Chromatic in a free version as well as an ads-free paid one, and we recommend you to give it a whirl – check the gameplay video below!

Super_Mario_Ringtones (Free)
With Windows Phone 7 Mango, you can now set your personalized ringtone through an app. Super Mario Ringtones lets you use some of the classical and famous Mario tunes on your phone (cool!).

Tunes are available from the classical NES and N64 titles: Super Mario Bros 1,2 and 3, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World, Super Mario RPG and Super Mario 64.

Multiple tunes per game are available – you can simply preview the jingle, save it to your phone and make it your ringtone right from the app. The app is snappy and very responsive, which helps your navigation through the available tunes.

Tunes in this app are original and acquired from supermariobrothers.org, a super-fan based web site. One of our favorite tunes is Mario Underworld, but, after sampling a few tunes, we ended up with setting the Level Complete tune from Super Mario Bros as our new ringtone. Now heads turn when our phone rings: sweet!

Tangled Birds: free cute birds on WP7 /2011/10/tangled-birds-free-cute-birds-on-wp7.html /2011/10/tangled-birds-free-cute-birds-on-wp7.html#comments Mon, 31 Oct 2011 20:00:19 +0000 bestwp7apps /?p=2219 Untangle cute singing birds on your WP7 and set them free to fly!

Untangle cute singing birds on your WP7 and set them free to fly!Tangled Birds is a fun little un-tangling game for WP7.Similar to The Jumble, the goal is to untangle birds that are tied together, but here, as soon as a bird gets all his ropes straight, it flies away, leaving less spaghetti-mess on the screen for your cleanup. On the other side, as time goes by, more birds show up with more strings attached to their chirping red fellows.

So it comes down to timing: you play against the clock trying to untangle birds faster than they tangle up. A game can be very long if you are fast enough – leaderboards show games with several hundred birds freed which require quite some time – and at the same time challenging and fun!

Game Art is good but not great with mixed colors (especially on the menus) and music is anywhere between funny and annoying (it can be either one, based on your taste and mood).

Tangled Birds is free – go check it out on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.

WhatsApp (Free)
Free text messaging across mobile platofrms? We are IN! WhatsApp is a simple messaging app, but is present on the major platforms, making it a viable alternative to (expensive!) texting.

Available for Windows Phone 7 (Mango only), Android, iPhone, Nokia and Blackberry, WhatsApp simply allow you to send text messages, a picture taken from your WP7 phone photos, Facebook or Skydrive, or your GPS location to another user of the same app.

The genial idea around this app is that you register using your phone number. So people that have your number on their contact list can immediately see you as part of the WhatsApp network.

Remember the first days of Facebook when you were like: “oh, look this guy is also here, let’s send him a message…” – well this works on WhatsApp too: when you register the app will find all of your contacts who have the app installed so you can text them immediately.

If a friend is not in the list, you can invite them to install WhatsApp via email or regular text message, so you can message them for free after that!

WhatsApp is free on the Windows Phone, go grab it before you need to start paying for it!

The Mango OS update (WP 7.5 or 7.1 or whatever: Mango) brings some new features to our platform of choice: the ability to create pins for each individual setting as well as for internal app pages. This feat brought an initial burst of new shortcut – maker apps.

ConnectivityShortcuts is currently the bestseller in this category, and we must say it is simple and to the point, so it is well deserved.

Other apps like WP Shortcut Tiles or Network Dashboard are also available: they are useful and well designed, but Connectivity Shortcut was the one we preferred for its simplicity.

Just pin it to your start menu and with 2 taps you can control Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, the Cellular radio and the Airplane mode. You can also pin one of these shortcuts directly to the start screen to complete this task with one less tap – if you use these switch a lot you will save tons of taps over time!

Connectivity Shortcuts is one of the best seller Mango-only app of the moment, we recommend you to try it out.

Monster Stack (Free)
Physics games are taking over Windows Phone 7? Well, after Physi Bricks, (which we reviewed last week and is now number 2 on the marketplace!), is now the turn of Monster Stackto climb the charts!This time you have to build, rather than destroy: the game starts from an empty board with static pegs (boxes, triangles, circles or crosses); you have to build a house-like construction with small monster-like pieces of similar shapes. Build the house with all the pieces without letting the monsters fall!

The physics engine is good, the game is fun and the level progression pretty adequate: first ones go in a breeze, but the last few require thinking with trial and error attempts. Right now there are 25 available levels plus an additional pack which is “coming soon”.

Monster Stack is the fourth game of the series for Health Pack Games, what is striking is that this game is free, but it has all what’s needed to be an awesome paid game! Art design is beautiful, gameplay is enticing and music is entertaining!

But wait… there’s more! There is a level editor to create your own levels! And social game features such as achievements (scoreboards are coming soon…).

We thanks Health Pack Games for such a beautiful, FREE, game!

RunKeeper (Free)
We have been working on our weight lately to shake off some of the extra pounds gained on a lazy summer. Holidays are near, and this is another reason to get back in shape before it’s too late. What better opportunity than this to try a fitness app on our Windows Phone 7?

Runkeeper has been out for a while, but it still stands out for its simplicity and effectiveness among the fitness and running apps on WP7, it does what you need: measures the speed, distance, calories and tracks your path on the map.

Runkeeper supports multiple activities besides running, including cycling, walking, hiking and so on, it simply tracks the progress and reports it to you.

No fanciness like tracking your position to the significant other or showing you routes on the map, nothing advanced: just plain activity data that is useful to most beginner to intermediate runners.

After the activity is complete, you can post the results to the major social networks with a comment, as long as you registered your online profile to runkeeper.com (which we find a bit odd, why can we not post it from the app directly?).

The site also supports more advanced stats for more professional runners than we are, for a monthly fee. If you are marathon runners, check it out to see if it’s worth your money.

One defect that we found is that the app has a hard time to lock on the GPS when it starts. We have to wait a bit before it lock on, sometimes we need to get out of the app, run GMaps, wait for it to lock on and then come back to Runkeeper again. This is not a deal breaker, though – as long as you know and wait for it to pick up the signal.

Runkeeper is free, so if you are looking for a running or other activity companion for your WP7, check it out.

Physi bricks is a fun little physics based game, like many coming out these days on WP7.
Your goals is to send the green bricks off the screen, while keeping the red ones on, using a variety of balls, including small and big stone, exploding, imploding and inverse gravityamong others.The game is fun and catchy, but very short, there are only 30 levels to go through, and since the game will intrigue you, they will go by fast. Also, sometimes you complete a level by chance more than by strategy, hey but this is true also for big casual games like Angry Birds.The graphic style is not bad, but could use more personality. A nice touch by the developer Stiq Joy is the video walkthrough published on their site. If you get stuck: go herebefore quitting.Overall Physi bricksis a good physics game that will get your attention for the short time required to finish it… until the next upgrade!

If you are still trying to get 3 stars in every level of Angry Birds, or trying to beat the last pigs bunch, this app will save your thumbs.Angry Birds Uncovered is a simple app that will show you videos of how to get the maximum score in the top mobile game of the year. A menu allows you to select episode, world and level and then displays the helping video that will show you the right way to get the precious 3 stars.The app is free, but a lot of the screen real estate is used for ads, maybe too much. Anyways, the app is useful, unless you want to search for online walkthroughs and you tube videos – which is not easy on the phone.

Go get those last achievement points on Angry Birds using the Uncovered option -

Note that there are 2 versions on the marketplace, the free one – reviewed here – and a paid version that for $ 1.49 will give you no ads, full screen videos and written walkthroughs. Unfortunately the paid version does not have a free trial…
