No More Ambiguous Icons in Windows Phone 7!

Thank Goodness! The latest build of Windows Phone 7 adds little text descriptions for the bottom bar icons when the bar is expanded with a swipe. This makes it MUCH easier for you to figure out what those icon buttons mean while maintaining the clean/simple design when the application bar is collapsed. I don’t know about you, but I was certainly looking at some of those icons wondering how I was going to decifer what their functions were before pressing them.
