Weekly App Round-Up: March 8th, 2011

Posted by Steven McPherson in "Windows Phone Software" @ 08:00 AM

This week's app round-up includes 4 apps that I think are really beginning to show the power of the Windows Phone 7 platform and the dynamic content that is starting to become available for the platform.

Included are a new Twitter client, a universal printing application, a contact sender for forwarding contact info directly from the people hub to other contacts, and finally a Groupon browser.

moTweets

First up is moTweets an application that has been around the Windows Mobile platform for awhile and has only gotten better with its addition to the Windows Phone marketplace. For Twitter users, this is the app for you on the Windows Phone platform. The application is clean, simple and easy to use. On first impression, the one feature that I think should be added is the ability to resize the text within the tweets.

Some of the interesting new features include the inclusion of location based info in your tweets and a ability to truly see what's going on around you. The "Near Me" thread enables you to not only see the tweets of those around you but their last mapped location. This could have some interesting uses in itself but for now it makes for a pretty cool visual.

Groupon Coming to Windows Phone Soon

Posted by Adan Galvan in "Windows Phone News" @ 09:00 PM

Eagle-eyed observers during the Mobile World Congress Keynote were surprised to see that Joe Belfiore had on his home screen a Groupon app. For those of you who don't know Groupon, it's a website that offers great deals on products and services. The catch is that a certain number of individuals have to purchase the item for the deal to be on. Google recently attempted to purchase Groupon for $7B, a huge valuation which indicates the growth potential of the budding company. Either way, a Groupon app will be a welcome addition to the growing library of apps on Windows Phone.
