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.
