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...
SC2Casts App for Windows Phone 7
XDA member Nudua presents his application SC2Casts for your Windows Phone 7, sporting all the same great features from the SC2Casts.com site but with a nice metro UI. With this app, you’ll be able to enjoy some of the most intense, amazing and unique battles between the Starcraft II Pro players, narrated in English.
So far, it has cataloged over 1000 games, and the database is being updated and increasing daily.
– Recent section – displays the top 20 matches from today/yesterday;
– Top section – displays the top 20 matches from either last 24 hours/week/month or all time;
– Search – there’s a search button in the top right corner that lets you search for players/casters/events;
– Browse section – let’s you browse by player/casters/event or match up.
This app is fully functional in free mode but with limited ads, only difference is that the full version has no ads. Get it via Zune and if you liked it, please leave your feedback.

Just wanted to share a project I’ve been working with SC2Casts.com, that lets you watch Starcraft 2 vods from the site.
There are currently thousands of vods up there, with players like Idra, White-ra and recent dreamhack winner Huk. (dreamhuk!) And more videos are added daily.
*Browse section – let’s you browse by player/casters/event or matchup
*Favorites – add any match to your favorites list, easily displayed on the first page
*Mediaplayer – a fully customized mediaplayer that lets you toggle the quality HQ (360p) / HD (720p) (u can also set defaults at the settings page)
The matches are displayed in a way that doesn’t spoil the results of a set.
You can also Like or Dislike any set, those are updated directly to the site as well.
This is the free ad-supported version, but it has all the same features as the full version.
Continue to the discussion thread.

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...
