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.

Yeah had a couple of crashes myself.

When adding files, it always ends up at the root folder of the isolatedstorage and it doesn't refresh the treeview so u can see the new files either.

If you have bug reports, I would suggest using codeplex as it has better tools to actually track that sort of thing in the issues section. Discussions are useful for any questions not related to specific bug/feature requests.

A .application is usually a ClickOnce file and when you double click it should install the app. The .appref-ms extension is basically a pointer to the internally stored app location and it's quite easy to break this relationship. You could try uninstalling the app via the Control Panel and reinstalling via the .application file. It's rare but possible that you got a corrupted install.

If you're really savvy, you could locate where the app is stored in IsolatedStorage and double click on the .exe directly but it's a lot of work when this should just work for you.
