On XDA we tend to post things that are English-centric, simply due to the fact that the forum is in English. However, we need to remember that although English is our defacto language, many of our users have another language that is their primary.

XDA Member sma6871 has done just that with his latest release, Persian Browser for Windows Phone 7. According to sma6871 the app has:

For those toting Windows Phone 7, you haven’t had too many options in the anime department and your only option on your phone was to stream it from a website from the browser.

Until now, that is.

Enter Anime Online, an anime streaming application that’s already available in the Windows Phone Marketplace. It’s a simple app with a friendly and pretty interface that allows you to stream some anime goodness on your Windows Phone.

Get Into the Christmas Spirit With This New WP7 Game

This holiday season, XDA Member varavut has developed a game for WP7 people to enjoy. Who knows, it could be your next holiday tradition!

While delivering gifts you must be on the lookout for the monster who’s out to steal Christmas gifts. When you find this not-really-the-Grinch-but-the-game-plan-is-similar creature, you must thwart their attempts to take the gifts those kids spent all year working hard at not being brats to earn (and that you worked hard to deliver!).
