In this episode of the Windows Phone 7 App Roundup we demonstrate five applications in 30 seconds each. These apps will entertain, keep you and your family organized at the grocery store, and keep on the latest sports scores. To download these apps directly to your WP7 device, just click on the title of the application and the Zune software will automatically launch to the app in Marketplace. If you have the free Microsoft Tag app installed on your WP7 device just snap a picture of the Tag image and the mobile Marketplace will navigate to that app.
Shared Shopping List A free application
Shared Shopping List makes it easy to know exactly what your room mates and family have either purchased or need to purchase at the grocery store. The app syncs the shopping list with other users on the shared account and shows which items have been purchased and which need to be purchased.
Score Mobile A free application
Score Mobile is your do-it-all sports center in the palm of your hand. The app gives current scores and standing of nearly every major sporting event around. Add your favorite sports to the dashboard to know exactly who is “winning!” There are even options to add your favorite teams for easy retrieval.
WinFone Alpha A free application
WinFone Alpha is an easy to use calculator that ties directly in with the popular Wolframalpha site. Just plug in virtually and equation or problem and WinFone Alpha will not only spit out the solution but also give you step-by-step instructions on how to get it.
Control the havoc of the streets in Traffic Cop. The game is simple in concept, yet difficult to execute. Direct oncoming traffic to stop, speed up, or change lanes. Some vehicles do not stop on any command such as the tanks and emergency vehicles. See if you have what it takes to keep those cars from crashing.
RC-AirSim A lite and $2.99 full application
If you have ever wanted to fly a remote control aircraft but the thought of crashing that $500 machine pushed you away, then RC-AirSim is the app for you. The flight simulator is easy to control by using the red joystick as the accelerator and the blue as the guidance system.
