If you are following TouchXperience on Facebook, you might be already experimenting with the public betas of Windows Phone Device Manager and TouchXperience. And if you have already realized that Julien Schapman’s work is worth a few bucks then you might be very well familiar with these apps as a private beta tester.

Just in case you forgot, Windows Phone Device Manager is a desktop app, which is supposed to be an ideal Device Manager (c’mon, we all know that Zune isn’t what we call a “Device Manager”) capable of doing several useful and perhaps essential tasks along with some basic ones like transferring and syncing files.


On the other hand, TouchXperience is a phone app which is more like a custom UI with some Metro aesthetics. TouchXperience brings many missing features in current WP7 devices like multitasking, file explorer, task manager and much more.

Note: You will need an unlocked or registered WP7 device to use either of the beta apps.


  1. Buggy and slow as molasses. Couldn’t even launch one of Schapmans own apps, without the app crashing. Never tried the multitasking toggle cause I don’t know what it does or if its reversible. The app also added PushClient registry keys. So is this homebrew app accessing Microsoft’s servers? That would be a good trick. Oh, and did I mention its ad supported. Didn’t see that in the video. Never got to playing with the desktop element, Device Manager, but you can’t use one without the other, so its bye, bye for the pair.

    Schapman’s TouchXplorer and Reg Editor work well enough to get something done, but this one needs some more time before it will be worth anything.
