    Just got my first Windows Phone last week and I'm looking to max it out with the best apps. Here are a few I am interested in using. Instead of trying this, that, and the other I figured I would reach out to the community.

    What do you think the best RSS Feeder is (Pulse, Weave, etc.)?

    Are there any good Navigation/GPS Apps available?

    Also looking for some fun multiplayer games if you have any suggestions.

    Thanks

    I don't really do the RSS reader thing but for GPS I suggest Navigon and for Multi player Gaming I suggest Armed

    I've been using FeedWorm, which is a Google Reader client. It's a simple, clean interface, and gets the job done.

    Thanks
    I second the suggestion of Wordament, which is a Boggle game with live leaderboard. Very addictive.

    For rss readers I have two suggestions: rss central and (for google integration) wonder reader. While neither of these apps are as beautiful as pulse, fuse, flux, etc, what they do have is stability, a very efficient reading interface, and reliable background loading. This last point is very important to me. With either of the mentioned apps, I can be reading the latest feeds within seconds of opening the app. That said, I would love to combine the features of rss central and the look of flux for my perfect rss reader.

    I use Fuse.

    Best multiplayer game is definitely Armed!

    Thanks for the response everyone. I am really enjoying my new phone. Looking forward to trying out some of the readers you have suggested. I know this might be asking too much but is there a good cheap or even free GPS/Navigation app? I know iPhones and Android have Mapquest which seems to work great on my fiance's iPhone.

    If You do have a Google Reader setup I would recommend Flux. Weave or Rss Central if You do not.

    I like the ribbon format of Pulse, but it's currently limited to 20 feeds. Thus, I am using Fuse, which is similar visually, but unencumbered by feed limits.

    If the Pulse developer ever gets around to making our version as good as the iOS/Android version, I'll definitely switch back.

    My app walk-run-bike-drive is a comprehensive GPS, routing, tracking, location app. It has a free trial. What specifically are you for in a GPS app?

    Depending on whether you are using it as your primary GPS device or an just in case GPS, the built-in Bing Maps has fairly decent navigation. I use it pretty frequently and never have any issues. Just have to get used to tapping the screen for the next instruction, which, IMO, is blown out of proportion by some people. As far as RSS readers go, if you use Google Reader, Nextgen Reader is very good.

    I have, or have tried, all of the mentioned readers, and a couple others. Wonder Reader is the best I've tried so far.

    NextGen and Weave are both fantastic, and nav-wise I've never encountered a need for anything other than Bing Maps. The GPS finds me fast and never loses me, even on rural dirt roads, and it even save my bacon when I took a wrong turn on one such road. If your new device is a Nokia, I would recommend looking no further than Nokia Drive.
