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...
Get Organized with pTasks v1.0
XDA member pangel83‘s pTasks has been popular enough that it earned a spot in Windows Marketplace. For those of you not familiar with it, this application will help you to keep control of your expenses such as on supermarket, gas, or any expense that you incur. Moreover, this is the ideal tool to get organized, so that we remember to get everything we need when we go out shopping, even the little stuff that we sometimes forget to buy. This update includes finger scrolling and multilingual support among others.
This application is still on early development process and some bugs still need to be fixed, so feedback from users will be very appreciated by the developer. You can download this app from Windows Marketplace for free.

So I got fed up waiting for someone to write a decent tasks interface for WM, and put something together to make my life easier. I am reasonably happy with the result, and therefore I am releasing it here on XDA.
Some things to keep in mind:
- .NET CF 3.5 Required.
- To get reminders, enable “Reminders” in the “Notification Sounds” (Sense 2.5) or “Sounds & Notifications” (elsewhere)
- 100% compatible with outlook exchange and activesync
- Could be used in conjunction with Remember the Milk’s MilkSync
New in 1.0
- Modify Scrolling Speed
- Flagged Emails
- Different colour for tasks due today.
You can find more information on the application thread.

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...
