We talk quite a bit about Nokia Lumia around here, but today I was updating wife's HTC Trophy and was surprised to find two new apps (in between many others) that looked interesting:

- HTC Location: a navigation app with local maps - like Nokia Drive you can download maps and use it while offline. It comes with 30 days navigation free, then after that it is $9.99 for a month, $41.99 for one year or $84.99 for unlimited use. Speed Cameras updates cost $4.19 for a month and $10.99 for one year.

- HTC Watch: a movie application that gives you trailers, movie rentals and purchases. Movie rentals go from $6.99 and movie purchase from $24.99... A bit more expensive than iTunes. 

Quite impressed with the apps being there, not so much with prices.

Flashlight is also pretty cool. I use it a lot when I need to checkout something in total darkness. It's FREE!




Do whatever you want to do man.

Two recommendations for flashlight? I thought I better give it a go. so I just installed it on my HTC Radar.

Quite a cool app!

I use widgetsoid on my android HTC. It puts the flashlight switch right on the home screen. Very handy.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
