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.

Expand Your Windows Phone 7 Experience To Your PC Screen – WP7 RecX
How often do you find yourself looking at your computer and looking at your device by switching your sight from one to the next? Also, if you are a developer, you must hate using emulators to be able to show off your work to others. If you can identify yourself with the last two scenarios, then you will be happy to learn about this app by XDA member fiinix. The dev has tweaked the app to the point of actually getting rather good video performance, over 2.3 fps according to the dev. Some of the other features include a full screen mode by pressing F11, change of background, and the ability to start and stop the server with relative ease. It is worth mentioning that the original app was made by another dev, but was heavily modified by fiinix.
The thread contains a lot of useful feedback and information that you can use to help the dev in making this great app even better. So, please if you try this out, leave your comments and ideas if you can think of any way to improve this.
- Full-screen mode “F11″
- Presentation-mode background color chooser. (Useful in F11 mode)
- Great features on UI (The cn version suck’ed with UI)
- Chose what IP port WP7<>Server talk over
- See frames count’ received
- Start/Stop server at any time to continue later -button
- More than 2.3 fps! Yay.

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
