Windows 7 app pick: Windows Phone "Mango" Beta Developer Tools
Windows Phone 7 app pick: Picasa Metro. A nice WP-based solution for interfacing with Google Picasa. Provides online album viewing of course, but also light photo editing (including captions), photo uploading (including bulk upload), online photo and album management, an album map view that utilizes Bing Maps, and "Share" capabilities from within the Pictures hub. It's $1.29 but there's a trial available too.
Mobile app pick: Plex
