Ebay for Windows Phone 7 walkthrough video

This one apparently slipped down under my radar last week but it’s never too late to post about a neat looking Windows Phone 7 application.

Foursquare and Seesmic released on Windows Phone 7

Two of the most anticipated social apps have now been released on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. I’m talking about Foursquare and Seesmic. Both applications are obviously free of charge and can be downloaded on any WP7 device. The Foursquare application seems to feature everything you can expect to find in it but Seemsic apparently still lacks Push Notifications and Landscape support (but obviously includes full Twitter and Facebook integration). Interestingly it seems that a lot of developers are rushing their applications out of the gate to be among the first in the Marketplace which means that you will  encounter a couple of “unfished” apps at first. I’m also currently thinking about what to do with the release of the MobileTechWorld Windows Phone 7  application. There are stilll a few features that I haven’t implemented yet so I’m debating whether I should release it now and update it later or wait untill I’m feature complete before submitting the application.

Adobe Reader X PDF reader for Windows Phone 7 announced

I have to admit that I was a bit worried about the lack of PDF support in Windows Phone 7 but Adobe has thankfully cleared the situation today with the announcement of Acrobat X for desktop PC and and Adobe Reader X for  Windows Phone 7 , Android and Blackberry. One thing that will be interesting to know is ; how are we supposed to load PDF files on our Windows Phone 7 devices? Only via mail attachment I guess? Will the reader be integrated in the the web browser so that when we click on a link pointing to a PDF file the application will automatically launch? Hopefully we will know soon enough. Also note that Acrobat X includes Microsoft Sharepoint integration and Word & Excell exports. Press Release after the break:
