Also Available in the HTC Hub…
The Windows Phone HTC Hub is more than just a weather app, however. Accessible here are any HTC apps that you might have installed (although these can also be accessed from your main phone screens) as well as access to any games that you have installed.
By providing this set of apps and games, the HTC Hub can be used as an alternative to the standard Windows Phone 7 screens, useful if you’re not keen on the Metro UI and have recently switched from an HTC Android device.
To access the apps and games, tap Get more; from here you can view the list of available HTC applications as well as launch anything that is available from the HTC Hub.
For instance you might want to run the HTC Photo Enhancer app – despite being run from within the HTC Hub this app will still be able to access any images you have saved to the phone. Meanwhile any software listed under the Applications tab can be installed, so look out for new apps; Games are listed on their own tab, but note that these are no different to the ones you would find in the main Windows Phone Marketplace.
To some, the HTC Hub is little more than an alternative Marketplace, but as you will have seen it can also be used as an alternative to the main Windows Phone interface if you like your options limited.
