In this episode of the Windows Phone 7 App Roundup we demonstrate five applications in 30 seconds each. These apps will keep you entertained, allow you to listen to music others are playing in your vicinity, and search through Wikipedia with ease. 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 smartphone just snap a picture of the Tag image and the mobile Marketplace will navigate to that app.

GeoDefense Trial and $2.99 full version
In my opinion tower defense style games are the most addictive games you can play, and the Xbox Live game GeoDefense is no exception. While this game has interesting electronica style graphics, the gameplay is easy to execute. Build your towers and defend the goal to prevent the enemies from defeating you.
Wordament A free application
In Wordament you play against other Windows Phone 7 users from around the world. The game is similar to Boggle in which you have letters arranged in 4×4 square and you need to come up with the most number of words in two minutes. See how well you rank against the other players.
