What five Windows Phone 7 apps are missing to meet your needs?
The WP7 launch today was focused on hardware, but we also saw some included launch apps. Looking a my situation with a likely HD7 purchase there are really only 5 more apps I need to move from Android to WP7.
Now that I am intimately familiar with the Windows Phone 7 operating system and have seen some of the apps we will see launching on the hardware, I am left wondering what other apps I would need to see to give up my HTC EVO 4G Android smartphone. I personally think Windows Phone 7 offers a zippier and more consistent user experience than Android, while Android is very personal and customizable with all the apps I need readily available. WP7 is also better with support Exchange and Office (obviously) while my EVO 4G has WiFi tethering.
When I look at my HTC EVO 4G, I see I have something like 50+ apps loaded up on it. However, in reality many of those are rarely, if ever, used and it seems I go to a few key apps on a regular basis. These apps and my thoughts related to Windows Phone 7 include:
Twitter (MS showed an app coming for this.)
Amazon MP3 (Zune takes care of this need.)
Facebook (Well integrated on WP7.)
Angry Birds (I am sure it will come eventually.)
USAA Banking (This killer service lets me take photos to deposit checks. I don't see this coming to WP7 anytime soon.)
Google Listen (Zune should allow for podcatching.)
Slacker (Included on HD7 and Zune supports wireless streaming too.)
Nook & Kindle (Haven't seen any ebook reader news yet.)
Bible app (Haven't seen any news for WP7 here yet.)
Endomondo or Runkeeper (Haven't seen any news for WP7 here yet.)
