Default Check Out Windows Phone 7 Apps via Your Desktop

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><img src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>It's strange that Microsoft still hasn't updated the&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Windows Phone Marketplace</a> to reflect the newly launched platform, but&nbsp;Paul Willen has delivered a solution in the form of <a href="" target="_blank">Marketplace Browser</a>. It allows you to browse available apps via your desktop browser, and when you click on download, it will open up the Zune desktop application and show you the app. I think that function might only work in the USA though - for whatever reason, whenever I click on the download link, the Zune Desktop software tells me that "the requested item isn't available" in my location. Yet when I do a search for that same app, it's there in the marketplace. Maybe it will work better for you?</p>
