    Considering this is my first Windows 7 phone i only have a couple apps. I haven't done much digging around for new stuff yet though.

    No particular order
    Facebook
    Poynt
    Halo Waypoint

    Small list i know. I'm really hoping for Heytell to come to the OS. It seems to be all the rage with my friends and i'm feeling a little left out.
    Poynt has always been one of my favorite apps, mainly for the gas prices so i can always find the cheapest gas. Awesome, awesome app.
    Halo Waypoint is obvious. I play Halo: Reach almost every single day. Its nice to see who is online and get all the news on my phone.

    My Top 11 (because I couldn't choose just 10), no particular order:

    AP Mobile - when it works...update was supposed to be released weeks ago to address crashing and has not been. But when it doesn't crash, it's the best news app on WP7)

    The Weather Channel - LiveTile works better than Weatherbugs, like the app better as well though it's a bit laggy and buggy at times

    Facebook - for the stuff you don't get built in. I expect to use this less when mango comes out.

    The Onion 7 - Nice Onion reader, has some issues and some things require cliking through to their site to see properly, but the big bonus for me is in the Video and Radio playback, which is much faster through the app than when using their mobile site

    Telenav GPS - Pay 10 bucks a month for this, can't wait for Mango and Bing turn-by-turn. I know there are market place apps I could buy for less than 10 dollars to replace Telenav until Mango comes out, but I don't trust them. Maybe I should try one out if they have demo mode.

    Amazon Kindle - Nice ereader for the phone. I read public domain classics and the occaisonal splurge on a paid ebook, the prices for which are highway robbery.

    Bank Of America - No brainer if you bank with them, bill pay in particular is easier in the app than on the real website. I use safepass for logon which makes logging on to this somewhat akward, Mango and Multitasking should help with that. One thing the app is missing is picture deposit. Hopefully with Mango and the camera API addition this feature will be introduced.

    Windows Phone News 7 - There are actually two apps named this and I have both. They each crawl various news sources for WP7 related content and present it up. Can't get enough WP7 news so i use both.

    Walgreens - Picture/Barcode Perscription Refills

    Fandango - Movie Reviews / Buy Tickets

    OpenTable - The Tonight for 2 slice is awesome, provides a quick way to get a glance at what is open that night nearby for you and your SO.

    Flowerz
    Fruit Ninja
    Need for Speed Undercover

    I've not had the phone too long, but I've been through a few apps - I haven't got ten stand out ones yet, but these are worth a mention:

    Rowi - responsive, pretty, easy to use, a marked improvement over the official Twitter client and the tile adopts the theme colour instead of staying Twitter logo blue (this is a bigger plus than it should be...)
    IMDb - makes full use of the Metro UI, much easier than going via browser
    TuneIn Radio - an internet radio app that does everything I want it to and gets all the BBC stations (handy since they're now using a Flash-based player for radio)

    Amazon Kindle is impressive too, but I can't get away with reading for long periods on a backlit screen.

    I'd like to see Firefox (maybe less important after IE9 arrives in Mango), but I can't imagine that'll happen...

    You might be interested to know that Microsoft are making this against the submission terms. To make the tile adapt to the colour of your accent you have to use a transparent live tile image, I recently got an e-mail from MS's marketplace telling me that the next version of RateYourBeer will fail certification if I use a transparent background again.

    Evidently Microsoft either wants a colourful homescreen or to distinguish first party apps/hubs from third party ones.

    Thank you Microsoft. Can't stand the monochromatic look of my Start screen.

    I want to download trial version of Need For Speed. But i don't have wifi at my place. Also when i connect it to PC to get it downloaded it does seem to download anything. Can anyone please guide me as to how to download this game using ZUNE SOFTWARE on PC. Btw i own a Samsung Focus and my PC is running Windows XP SP3. A stepwise procedure will be a great help. Thanks in advance
