    I'm all for the "Alarm" being renamed to "Clock" and given the extra features that are required. World times, stopwatch, and timer are really quite basic. :)

    At present I use "Super Timer". It's a decent quality app.

    It's a decent app, but MS should have this feature build in with a nice Metro UI app. And the lack of official Mango compass app... :)

    I wish I had the time to learn how to code for WP7. I'm a graphic designer, and I completely understand the idea, metaphors and visual language of Metro UI, so if I knew, I could replicate native apps from the outside icon (which way too many third party apps suck at, replicating iOS, or worse, Android) to the icons and transitions inside the app. Maybe someone interested in collaborating? ;)

    Sorry but that's excuses. There is no reason Microsoft couldn't have come out with beautiful stock Metro utility apps(world clock, calculator, compass, calendar). No excuses at all. More stock apps != bloat or degraded performance. It just means more value out of the box.
    So give everybody something that only some people need? I never needed world clock or a timer so I am glad I don't have those apps that won't be used by me and eat up my memory. Also... there is a calculator and calendar built into every WP7 device so I am not sure what you are talking about there.

    My Radar doesn't have a compass built in so I guess it doesn't really matter for me. I don't really explore caves anyways and I can tell which way is which day or night if I am outside so I am good there too.
