5 Cool Apps for your Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

windows-apps5 Cool Apps for Windows Mango

Today it is time for me to share some of the best apps I have come across so far for my Windows Mango phone. As you might have read already I recently bought a HTC Radar smartphone running the new Windows Phone Mango. One of the things that make a smartphone smart is if you have some cool apps that can help you out. Yes I know. The Windows Marketplace does not have 500.000 apps like the AppStore and either does it have 250.000 apps as the Android marked, but with about 35.000 Apps so far Microsoft is on their way and new apps are added every day.

One of the programs that are still missing on the Marketplace is Skype. I find that a bit strange because who is it that recently bought Skype? Yep correct Microsoft themself…!! However a new video service called Tango is available for both: Windows Phone, Android and iOS.

Need help for reinstalling an App on Windows Phone Mango

If you like me sometimes find it necessary to reinstall an App you have tried to install once I came across this little article that explains how. It is not difficult at all, but it can be tricky to find the option to do it. I have been looking for this option in the Zune player many times, but it is not there. You need to go to the online version of the Marketplace to find the option.

    Windows phones may not have the applications that are available on iPhones or Android phones, but they still have some pretty good applications.

    I wonder if the app development will increase once Windows 8 is released as it seems to be a much anticipated OS.

    • Thomas says:

      Hi Paul
      I agree with you. There are a lot of quality apps for the new Windows Phone. Sometime I wish people would focus on quality instead of quantity. I don’t need 500.000 apps for my phone. I would actually sometime wish there was only a couple of hundreds quality apps for me to choose from.
      Windows 8 will for sure be interesting. In the Developer preview I have seen the have integrated the same kind of touch framework for tablets that they use on Windows Phone. It might make it a lot easier to transform a desktop app into a mobile app in the future.

    Hi Thomas!

    Thanks for the information on useful applications. I like the one that helps you get soccer livescores. Is there any application that offers live scores for international tournaments of any game that you like?

  3. Bob says:

    Windows Mango has been making a buzz in the market lately. It’s good to let people know about the applications in order to encourage people to buy windows phone.

    • Thomas says:

      Hi Bob
      In order to make it in the business of smartphone operating systems Apps support is a must. I think Microsoft have done a good job so far with more than 35.000 apps for Windows Mango.

  4. Rosalia says:

    With the advancement of technology, there are new developments taking place. I believe that are also other applications that windows Mango supports apart from those listed above. I like the Tango application that enables free calling on 3G. I believe its wonderful. Thanks for the providing information, Thomas.

    • Thomas says:

      Hi Rosalia
      Welcome to my blog. There is for sure a lot of other great apps for Windows Phone Mango. The Tango application is for sure nice. Some people think that it will replace Skype in the future.

    This article really got my interest making me read it from the top to bottom. Well, about the five listed Mango app above, luckily I have tried two of them, first is the IMDb and the Tango. I can say that the author has a good taste picking those app as it has a lot of useful feature such as having a video call and having a wide list of movies from your phone. Nonetheless, I suggest covering a new up to date app for mango such as Stitcher, a free talk radio app that lets your listen to your favorite programs on demand.

  8. Linda says:

    I almost got every app you name in this list only not the soccer app because I don’t like soccer. Great list and hope you make more lists like this one. Keep on the good work!

    I have been using this app even when I was using my iPhone and Android phone. Let me tell you this is the best app for me all the OSes and on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, Evernote has been updated with many improvements.While surfing on the Google search engine you can just make notes on this app. A must have app for all three platforms: Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, iOS and Android.

    I know this is some thing a very interesting initiation from Nokia to collaborate with Microsoft to enable this new innovation about this.

  18. Matt says:

    Apps that keep you up to date with the latest films and football scores – we’re all over them 🙂 Still think it will be interesting to see how the Window’s apps develop alongside the much more established iOS and Android platforms, but as long as there is some availability of popular core apps like some of those you mentioned, we definitely think the Window’s platform has got a future among consumers. Nice post.
