Two new applications to post:

First up, ZIM, or, Zune Instant Messenger, allows you to wirelessly chat with another Zune user. Uses an on screen keyboard, and a virtual 'chatroom', which other Zunes with the application join. (Note, wireless MUST be on, or the application will crash upon loading).

Have yet to test it, as I don't know anyone with a Zune nearby.

Second, a beta Sleep Timer application. Allows you to choose a time (hours, minutes, seconds) at which the Zune will restart. You can choose an album, artist, or playlist to listen to until then. (Note, Sleep Timer only restarts the Zune (Gets it to stop playing music, which wastes battery), to get it to restart without starting back up, put lock your Zune with the hold switch).

Keep in mind, since it uses the XNA CTP, and is considered a "Game", the backlight WILL stay on for as long as the application is running, considerably draining the battery. Author has made it so that you can turn everything on the screen off (black) by pressing the center button, but the backlight remains on.

My friend over at ZB created a nice, simple stop watch.

Applications sure to be popular as of late. Here are a few new interesting ones:

LedZepp has released a beta Text Book Reader. You take a plain old text version (or PDF) of any book, article, or whatever, and, following the instructions in the link above, it's implemented into the Text Book Reader app. Everything is self contained automatically, so no more converting a gazillion pages of text into images.

Another Zune Instant Messenger App has surfaced, with, IMO, a more attractive layout and an easier to use onscreen keyboard.

Two versions of an Alarm Clock application have also been released, one by XNA newcomer ShotgunSnipist, and another by Isaac Barrett (Huntsman85).

Darkblade the second Alarm Clock link does not work. Is there another link or has the developer stopped the project?  Thanks!

Here's another app to add to the list: zenReader

It's a lot easier to add books to it compared to "Text Book Reader," and more customizable as well.
