Angry Birds

A number of top tier apps have finally found their way to Windows Phone 7. This week the popular Angry Birds game flew into the Windows Phone Marketplace, along with mobile check-in app Gowalla, cross-platform messaging service Kik, and cooking app Epicurious.

The sudden rush of apps from big-name developers could be a sign that Windows Phone 7 has finally arrived and that developers aren’t solely focused on iOS and Android anymore.

On the other hand, the fact that it’s big news that apps which have been available for Android and iOS for ages is telling. It’d probably be more exciting if we saw stories about big apps launching first on Windows Phone 7.

Still, if you’re a Windows Phone 7 user, it’s nice to know that there are a growing number of third party apps available for your platform including some of the most popular apps for other mobile phone platforms.
