Help

Anyone else having problems running the new apps? When I first run them my Zune reboots. After reboot then I get "item missing or can't be played"

Edit: I deleted them from my collection and reinstalled and they are now working... ...phew I thought my "experimenting" with Doom was going to cause problems with new apps.

Anyhow, Labyrinth is really cool!!!!

Nope. All running smooth here. Dave, congratz to the team on Labyrinth and Solitaire. Solitaire looks great and is nice and smooth. Labyrinth is awesome! Can't wait to show my kids that one - my wife just bought last holiday at an Op shop some of the old retro ball-bearing cube puzzles this is based on (where you guide the bearings into slots).

COOL !

Dammit, I wish the timer feature would have functions what to do when time expires, like play a song, or beep, or sleep (sleep timer please!)

A sleep time would be something I would indeed use.

I'd love it if you could add a shutdown (or sleep) command to the bottom of a playlist.

I have a feeling that a Windows Live Messenger app is coming sometime soon (few weeks to few months) too. iPhone/iPod touch app slated for June I think, so homegrown device should be coming first, right? Anyways can't wait to try out the other new apps released today.

So Dave now that the 3 apps came out today does the "soon" also applies to the other apps coming or is the status back to "later"? 0.O

We have more apps to come, we're aiming to get more consistent with releases, let's leave it at that...

Cheers, Dave.
Good sign of more apps somewhere between "soon" and "later".

What do you use it for that makes it "off the effin chain"?

Very nice to see a few new apps!

Solitare is just mandatory on a mobile device. Good little airport timekiller. It is nicely executed. Can we get Spider Solitare next please?

Stopwatch/Timer: simple, but well exicuted and useful.

Labyrinth: A really cool, fun and well made game (esp for free! Would expect to pay for something with 110 levels!)

But, mostly pleased to see that MS is paying some much needed attention to this device. Hope to keep seeing a few more releases over the next few months...

Thanks Dave!

First of all I really like Labyrinth!! ...but, your comment about paying because it has 110 levels is not so right though...its a program which use patterns, so each level/pattern is actually computed and not made by hand if you know what i mean..they just made graphics and objects and then ran a code to make each level according to some conditions.

Also, the sphere doesn't move so smoothly (probably something wrong with physics), but i guess this is a detail for most of the people..(i'm used spotting these details because i'm a pinball simulation fan...)

P.S. The graphics of Labyrinth remind me of LittleWing Pinball... http://www.littlewingpinball.com/con.../ft_screen.jpg

If we could only have one of their tables for Zune HD, it could be a miracle!!!
