Contract Killer and Copy and Paste Dialer for WP7

One common complaint among many Windows Phone 7 users is the lack of application and video development. It is there, but not in the volume that many users would like. This is especially true for those coming from other platforms that have a few more applications at their disposal. Now, WP7 has at least a couple more applications to help fill those gaps.

The first is a dialer app released to our forums by XDA Forum Member monotheist. A big and well known issue with WP7 is the inability to copy and paste phone numbers from various places to copy them into the dialer. The Copy/Paste dialer fixes that feature directly, and even adds a few other features, including:

Copy and Paste Numbers to Dial or Text
Search Phonebook directly from the dialler
T9 based address book name search from dialler keypad
Phone number search from dialler keypad
Ability to Edit number before call
Send Contact Number via Text
History of 500 dialled numbers

This can be quite beneficial for those who use their dialer often, and is a welcome addition to WP7–especially for those who have switched to WP7 from other platforms and miss these features.

The other application is a first person shooter called Contract Killer. Posted by XDA Senior Member Bidniu, the game is also free in the Zune Marketplace. Centered around the life of a contract killer, the game has pretty decent graphics and the polished game mechanics. There are a few other FPS floating around, but in the world of mobile gaming, more is always better. With these two additions, WP7 have at least a couple more applications to help reach application parity.

For more info, check out either the Contract Killer thread or the Copy and Paste Dialer thread.

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process.
