HTC Windows Phone Apps
Available via the Marketplace on the HTC HD7, HTC Surround, HTC 7 Mozart, HTC 7 Pro, and HTC 7 Trophy handsets, the HTC Apps sit in their own sub category, alongside Applications, Games and Music.
Thirteen apps are available in total, ranging from the whimsical to the extremely useful.
The HTC Hub is essentially a weather app that also features a Sense UI style interface, which, while attractive, seems somewhat alien to Windows Phone 7. Meanwhile Love is an amusement, allowing you to pluck the petals from a flower in true romantic manner.
HTC’s exclusive apps really take off with YouTube, a superbly executed app that plays back content within the app rather than booting you out to the browser (as per the official app) and lets you view in landscape mode. Sound Enhancer affords various enhancements to audio playback and features a preset equalizer, vital for getting the most out of multimedia, while Photo Enhancer performs a similar task with your camera snaps.
Connection Setup is intended to allow HTC phones to be used anywhere in the world, while Attentive Phone can be used to add some interesting new responses from your device when a call is received, such as increasing volume on the ringtone when the phone is in your pocket.
Finally among the HTC apps are a Stocks tracker, a Notes app, a unit Converter, a typical Calculator app and a useful Flashlight.
