Showing Off Windows Phone 7’s Internal Apps

Get Microsoft Silverlight

Every smart phone ships with a number of apps included, developed internally by the programmers. Here’s a taste of what you’ll find no WP7: Spirit Level, Unit Converter, Bing Translator, Shopping List, Weather, Stocks, and Unite (and accelerometer game).

Not only will these be bundled with the OS, but Microsoft is releasing all the source codes for these apps to developers, allowing them to piggy back on the information from within. It also serves as a handy demonstration about how to use information from the accelerometer and other inputs, and how to use the phone’s themes to set colors for apps.

Now, where’s my Minesweeper?
