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.

Handyscan for Windows Phone 7
XDA member pckshd presents Handyscan for your Windows Phone 7. This application will turn your device into a small scanner by using your camera. The latest update includes a free lite version with ads and some minor limitations such as not being able to send the scan via email directly from the app. Instead, you have to go to the image created and then send it. Also, you can´t convert to PDF and the images saved to media hub have a small watermark at the bottom. Even with these limitations, the app is very useful and will let you create collage pages with scanned images, import & export images from pictures hub library, send scanned document via email, either in JPG or PDF format and choose size and quality for sending scanned results.

Handyscan is your personal document scanner. With it you will be able to use the device’s camera to scan (picture) physical documents and send them to your inbox or to any email recipient, either in JPG or PDF format. You can scan multiple pages per document, you can also align/rotate the resulted scan or crop it if needed. Handyscan has also a ‘typewriter’ feature which allows you to type text into scanned documents or forms. Traditional scanners are usually big, tough and hard to use; now with Windows Phone 7 you can take advantage of its high resolution camera in conjunction with handyscan to scan easily, quickly and effectively.

If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. 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...
