Hey Everyone, While I'm awaiting the arrival of my Radar in the mail, I was curious what any owners thoughts were on the HTC Hub features and apps. I've read a few reviews of the phone and the Hub features are usually barely mentioned. I'm sure the Flashlight app is dead useful, but what about some of the other apps like the weather live tile and the notes app (any bonuses over Office?)

I use the HTC Weather application a lot. Besides weather, it includes Stocks, HTC News, and any other News application you have installed, along with featured HTC applications.
I use HTC notes simply for work reminders.Check out the great deals on Windows Phone Accessories: http://store.wpcentral.com

I hate the hub. I immediately uninstalled it.
I love HTC's stocks app and flashlight app though. I use USA today for all my news and weather. I don't think there is a better app out there for combined news and weather. It gets regular updates too. USA Today has really taken to WP7.

Yep. Delete HTC hub first thing after a hard reset. But as noted, Flashlight and Stocks work well. Some of the other apps are ok, but you can find better for free or 0.99 in the Marketplace.

Hey guys, good news, I got my Radar tonight and have been loving it so far. Thought you guys might be interested to know that while setting up a HTC Watch account I ended up getting a pretty nice credit. Check out my other post for details $10 Credit

Not me. I use it because I like the double-wide tile XD I have HTC HUB on top of ny apps, Pictures in the middle, and Calendar at te bottom. I actually like Weather Live but sometimes it can't find places I enter, HTC HUB will usually find these.
I have Flashlight very useful
Watch (never uses it though)
Dock, sometimes use it
HTC YouTube a must have, also has HQ playback
And I love Sound Enhancer, never had any problems with it personally
Also Attentive Phone (gets put in settings once installed) is a must have for HTC devices

the HTC hub is pretty, but it does make your phone look like an Android device...
the HTC flashlight is my flashlight app of choice... and the weather app is really cool to look at it
and as stated above, the double tile is pretty sweet

Deleted it immediately. I wish it also included radar and had a single tile option to take up less real estate. Being a hunter, I have found AccuWeathers hourly forecast suits my needs better. I really enjoyed the weather anis with WinMo. Looking back I guess it was more new and novel. It just doesn't feel right for me now with WP7. Just my opinion. I must be getting old lol.
