Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
ChatCentral for Windows Phone 7
Here’s another chat application for your Windows Phone 7 developed by XDA member JoeTheFro. ChatCentral does not feature a list of channels like other apps of its kind, so in order to join a channel you will need to do so by typing in a name and letting others to know that you are there. This was done in an attempt to keep chats kind of private, so you don’t have random people just showing up. According to the developer, most items will have context menus, settings, avatars (synced with server), push messaging, and the option to find people around you. The app is still in beta stage, so there is plenty of room for improvement. Please post your feedback.

Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
