Get the New YouTube App (if you have an HTC device)

HTC are on a roll at the moment regarding their apps. They recently updated their ‘HTC Hub’ to display the weather on a live tile on the home screen. Today, they’ve released their own YouTube app which is far superior to the standard YouTube app. It’s now easier to browse and search for videos as well as watching the videos in full screen and high quality. It’s also possible to jump to a particular location in the video by clicking on the time-line (just like on the YouTube website).

The Defence of Lushington Springs Game for WP7

I covered a game that was in early development called The Defence of Lushington Springs. The developer has been busy working away at the game and it now a few days away from submission. The game is based on the ever popular Tower Defence games and contains nice visuals and audio. Below is the latest preview video showing a couple of the levels. Hopefully not too long before the game can be downloaded!

If you’ve created your own wallpaper, you can share it in the gallery.

YouTube often has the Wikipedia effect. I visit for a specific reason and end up on a completely unrelated subject and never leave bread crumbs to find out how I got there. Well, today I was on YouTube watching some physics videos and ended up with a trip down memory lane with the X-Men cartoon intro. With the theme tune on loop in my head whilst working on an app, I was inspired to take a break from development and update my lock-screen wallpaper on my device. I had an idea of creating (Wolverine-inspired) claw marks as part of the lock screen. All the wallpapers I’ve seen for Windows Phone 7 contain no transparency. I thought it would be cool to be able to display the home screen ‘through’ the claw marks.

Chrome to WP7 App Now Available

We’ve all had those times where we need to leave the computer in the middle of an interesting web article. Well, Chrome to WP7 alleviates that pain by allowing you to easily send that website from your brower to your Windows Phone 7 device – for free! You need to be using Google’s Chrome browser for this to work (hence the name ;)). Simply download the plugin from developer Dave Amenta’s site and install it (literally takes a second). Then grab the free app from the Zune marketplace. Using it is extremely easy. When you find yourself wanting to send the link to your phone, simply click on the Chrome to WP7 icon in the Chrome browser and it will send it to your phone. You can then click on the item from within the app to continue browsing on the phone. What’s more, you can also highlight page on a text, click the icon and have that sent over to your phone as well. A neat little touch is that if the app isn’t running, a push notification is sent to the device. Cool app, and free! Check out more information on Chrome to WP7 over at Dave’s site.
