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.

Game – Chicks’n’Vixens for Windows Phone 7
Can’t wait for Angry Birds to come out on Windows Phone 7? Here’s your chance to have a similar gaming experience on your new device.
