Best windows mobile apps?

Just got a htc hd2 last week and am really pleased with it so far. I had the VERY first windows mobile which seems like eon's ago. I've been out of the game too long. Just wondering what are the best apps for it and what they do? I know there's tons more apps for iphon and andriod, but there's quite a few apps for winmo i'm sure that aren't on marketplace. What do ya'll run on your winmo's?

i resisted typing "please don't tell me i should have bought an iphone or android" in my OP, i now see i should have went ahead and typed it, haha. I've had an android phone, they are brilliant. I was offered a FREE brand new iphone and turned it down. Iphone also is brilliant, i can't and won't knock it. However I think winmo is recovering slightly. If they can get the app amount up then with htc's new sense UI i think they're onto a winner. I can multitask away til my heart is content, fiddle with roms, change this and that. All things you can't do on an iphone. However for eejits they are great, couldn't be easier to use and only runs one app at a time so people don't get confused:))

eejits lol thats so the commitments ,good luck to ya on your quest for sale and trade is that way when you sell it ,fantastic screen though and top of the mornin to ya


The only way i'll sell it mate is if i'm gonna revert back to my old phone and buy another toy with the money, and i don't see that happening. Won't be going for an iphone thats for sure. I've got experiance with iphones too. I had one shipped from the US on the day they came out over there for my best mate. He's had every version since. Great phone but not for me. No bluetooth? mental.

oh and the commitments was such a good flick.

your not wrong ;-) i have a nexus 1 well untill the htc supersonic comes out and then only untill the iphone 4g comes out well if its drastically overhauled and fresh which i hope but doubt


i was close to getting another android. Very close. If there'd been a hd2 with android i'd have probably snapped it up. However winmo 6.5 with htc sense is pretty sweet. Hasn't put a foot wrong yet.

I got a HD2 today, great phone I dont see any problems with windows mobile when its got the sense ui on it, BIG screen as well ! better than the iphone imo

keep using it once youve stopped getting a hard on over the screen then the problems appear


I phone people on it and occasionally text so im not really too worried but thanks for your concern, and when it gets the free upgrade to wondows mobile 7 it should be even better :)

i'm not getting too excited about winmo 7. It isn't just the screen of the hd2 though thats impressive. The only flaw of the whole package is lack of apps.

Its the first HTC phone ive bought and im v impressed by the build quality,Ive had several phones over the past three years but kept going back to my LG Viewty because its built like a brick and has a great camera, the Nokia N96, Tocco Ultra and others have all been flogged but ill be keeping hold of the HD2, Tocco Ultra............ now there IS a **** phone !

I've had a few htc phones and been impressed with them all. They just seem to get better and better. Quietly brilliant is their motto and i think it suits them. Your average joe won't have heard of them but they make super phones. Had an n96 for about a month and flogged it. Great idea, bad phone. I updated the firmware and the battery lasted about 6 hours with little or no use. I'm sure it could have been fixed but you pay that money for a phone why bother!

What apps have you installed?
#11
Non so far as I say I only got it today, ill probably just install last.fm and divx, Ive had a lookin the app store but like you say, a lot of the stuff is a rip off £5.19 to play pacman !!!

I actually loved the n96 but i got rid because the buttons squeaked slightly when i pressed them and the whole thing felt too plasticy and cheap, ive got my eye on the x3 though, seems to be a bit of a poor mans n96 but the build quality looks better

aye had a look, but i kept getting less excited at the prospect of a new nokia as each one felt pretty much the same. As you say the build quality got bad.
