    IMO weather apps should be free, but it seems that everyone that has one they like costs $1.50 or $2. Im not saying $2 is ridiculous, but spending $1-2 on every app can get pretty pricey. I dont mind paying for a few apps, especially if they have nice live tiles and work really well, but im seeing way too many people saying how bad an app is, or how the live tile quit working or whatever, and its a pay app. Spending $1 on an app to have to spend another $1-2 on another app to replace it seems like it would get a bit old and frustrating.

    Anyone have a good list of free apps that dont have any major issues, also, any free weather apps?

    Favorite Free Apps:

    Amazon Mobile
    Flixster
    IMDb
    Mixtapes
    remembeReel
    TuneIn
    Urbanspoon

    One thing I want to mention though is an app called TVshow. It's not free. However, it's one of the most polished apps you will find in the marketplace. Highly recommended.

    Weather Channel is pinned with a full size tile and accuweather is set as my lock screen, because it shows all the info I could possibly need, and both are free. I would never pay for a weather app.

    accuweather is free and among all the weather app i used, it seemed most accurate. live tile works perfectly and its not a battery hog.
    here are the free apps that i found good and use regularly:

    freda/ bookviser (first one has better features while the second has better interface)
    fantasia painter free (this is amazing)
    flashlight XT (simple flashlight, no ad, no fuss, metro style)
    fuse (best news reader+youtube channel subscriber. free version has ad and no live tile background agent) - i'm getting this as soon as my new cc arives
    icq (well i use it for gtalk only, has toast and tile notification, no ad)
    manga reader (good interface, no ads)
    comic book reader (average interface but no ads)
    photosynth (this is amazing)
    shazam (unlimited tagging now!)
    zomato (best app for foodies :))
    dictionary (good stock of words and amazing interface)

    using L710 on WP7.8

    Huh? A goat. . . Blah, my Nissan 350 is absolutely beautiful. I can't drive it anywhere without someone telling me how beautiful it is. It actually gets really annoying after a while.

    psshhh....I put 410 to the ground and can drive 4 full grown adults around. Not many cars from 7-9 years ago that can make that claim ;) Who cares that it looks like a bloated Cavalier, I like it ;)
