The Windows Phone Power Tools are a natural extension to the developer tools that come with the Windows Phone SDK.

  • Instead of allowing you to only install developer xaps the Power Tools let you test update scenarios by allowing you to update an existing developer app.
  • Instead of having to step through the IsolatedStorage file browser on the command line, the Power Tools provide a GUI to allow you to interact with your applications.

 

Here are some screen shots :
