HTC adds apps

HTC's Sense UI isn't so strong a presence on this phone as it is with the firm's Android handsets - WinPho 7 has some very strict guidelines, in this regard - but there are still some pleasing elements, such as the HTC Hub, which you access from a button on the home page and offers HTC-specific apps, such as the weather, stock prices, a photo enhancer, a sound enhancer and so on.

HTC's Sense UI is here relegated to one WinPho 7's 'hubs'

HTC has been fond of its weather app since the early days of the Sense UI and it's getting more elaborate with each update – this version has you flying through clouds each time you open it.

That said, the apps within the hub can be added to the main screen for quicker access. Unfortunately, though, they present a static face quite at odds with Microsoft's notion that the home page tiles should display useful information and update as the data change.

More apps are available from the inevitable Marketplace

Incidentally, the sound enhancer is an equalizer with different settings for music and movies, as well as processing modes such as Dolby Mobile and SRS Enhancement.
