My Windows Phone App Wishlist

I love my Windows Phone, but the one thing that still needs improvement is the number of ‘big name’ apps available when compared to iOS and Android. This is a list of the ones that would make my day, in no particular order. I realize that there are apps for some of these, but I’m looking for official apps for the site/product.

  • Verizon FiOS DVR Manager
  • Verizon FiOS on Demand
  • Fidelity
  • US Airways
  • Amazon Cloud Drive
  • Amazon Cloud Player
  • Google+
  • Gmail
  • Google Reader
  • Angry Birds Seasons
  • Angry Birds Rio
  • NPR
  • Sportsline Fantasy Football
  • Sportsline Fantasy Baseball
  • Stack Overflow
  • WatchESPN
  • Audible – I’m hearing March 2012 rumors on this one.
  • Dropbox
  • Box
  • Instapaper
  • Tumblr
  • Posterous
  • 7 Wonders (1, 2 & 3)
  • Worms
  • A good Bocce game

What do you think? Let’s see your lists. Tags:

Live Mesh and Vista UAC




I was thrilled to see that I got my Live Mesh invite email last night. However, when I tried to install the client software on my laptop, I got this error:




“Product does not support running under an elevated administrator account or with UAC disabled.”


I’m not sure why I have to enable UAC to use Live Mesh, but I won’t be turning it back on any time soon. Maybe I’ll give it a try in an XP VPC.
