WP7 App From Walgreens Enables Prescription Refills In Seconds

"This exclusive Walgreens app feature lets you use your Windows Phone 7's camera to order prescription refills in seconds. It's time you experienced the convenience of Walgreens on your Windows phone."

Chalk this up as a potentially very convenient app if you need to refill prescriptions on a fairly regular basis. The process the app enables is quite straightforward: use the phone's scanner to scan the barcode of your prescription, then have your refill order placed automatically. There are other options for ordering a refill as well (entering the prescription number and reviewing your prescription history). The app also has shopping and photo ordering features. While this app does not adhere to the Metro UI standards, it is one that you may really appreciate for its convenience.

Instapaper Client for Windows Phone 7

Posted by Brad Wasson in "Windows Phone Talk" @ 07:00 PM

"Instapaper (previous TUAW coverage) is a read-it-later type service born, as so many great apps are, of personal need. Arment would often come across long web posts he wanted to read at work, but at the same time was bored on a long train commute armed only with an iPhone and sketchy cell coverage. He wrote a quick service that would accept web pages from his browser and build a queue of them that he could download to the iPhone -- and he integrated a markup remover into the software that stripped away almost everything from the page except the content, for quicker syncing on 2G networks and easier reading on the iPhone's small screen."

With the release of the Instapaper API developers have had the opportunity to develop client apps that expand the reach of the service. Windows Phone 7 is the first third party app to use the new API. A new app in the Marketplace, called Stacks for Instapaper, has been developed using the API. It allows Instapaper's paying subscribers to organize and read their bookmarks on their Windows Phone. If you are the type that surfs the Internet and constantly finds articles that you'd like to get back to some time, then this might just be the app that allows you to organize and read those articles once you have a few spare moments.
