Metrotube is now live on the Windows Phone Marketplace. It’s an awesome Youtube app that we recently previewed. The price is 99 cents, but for a limited time, the trial version is unrestricted, unlimited, and ad-free. This means you only pay if you love the app and think the devs deserve it.
Here’s a demo of Metrotube on the Nokia Lumia 800. The official YouTube app for Windows Phone is ridiculous. As far as I can tell, it just opens the mobile Youtube website. Keep your eyes open for Metrotube, an alternative that shows how the official Youtube app should be. It’s currently in beta, but will be available in the marketplace soon.
Seesmic for Windows Phone was just updated to support Mango and I’m showing it off on the Nokia Lumia 800. Seesmic lets you manage multiple Twitter accounts, your Facebook account, your Salesforce Chatter account and organize all your accounts, searches, trending topics and lists in your customizable “spaces” dashboard.
I keep finding new things to love about Windows Phone on the Nokia Lumia 800. I really like the deep integration third-party apps can have with the core Windows Phone experience. For example, let’s take a look at the app called Thumba Photo Editor. After taking a photo with the camera, you can head to options then tap apps. This will send the photo directly to the app for some photo editing. For the end-user, this makes the third party app feel like a built-in feature.
The Windows Phone team definitely knows how to throw parties. Here’s a video recap of what happened on Monday. We checked out the big Windows Phone display at Herald Square in New York City on Monday. There was a performance by the Far East Movement. The giant Windows Phone was very functional. Live Tiles were moving and even received push notifications.
I use Google to search the web, but Bing Search on Windows Phone is surprisingly good. To be more specific, the four options at the bottom of the app are actually fun to use. There’s location, music recognition, product scanner, and voice search. I made this video so you can see how it works before you get the Nokia Lumia 800 or Nokia Lumia 710.
SoundHound is another Windows Phone app I recommend. It’s free at the marketplace, so I suggest downloading it when you get the Nokia Lumia 800 or the Nokia Lumia 710. Here’s a video I shot to show you how SoundHound looks.
I want to show Nokia users how the email experience is going to look when they finally get their hands on a Nokia device running Windows Phone. That could be the Nokia Lumia 800 or the Nokia Lumia 710. I’ve been a long time Nokia user, so that means I’ve been using Symbian for a while. Email isn’t really one of the strong features on Symbian. I think you’ll like the experience better on Windows Phone.
