Microsoft recently announced its Windows Phone Marketplace app store had passed the 50,000 apps mark. It's still a way behind Apple's 500,000+ iOS apps but WinPho apps are no longer rarer than hen's teeth.
App: WP Shortcut Tiles:
Here's an app that does what it says on the package - it allows users to place handy shortcuts to their homescreen for easy access, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth settings.
Another app focused on pushing info to your Windows Phone's homescreen is the Live Calendar app. This lets users create monthly or weekly calendar Live Tiles. The tiles then automatically update, based on the background task in the calendar.
