So a little bit ago my second Windows Phone app was approved.
Here are my two apps up on the Windows Phone Marketplace:
Once the approval came through I filled out the form on the Mango App Challenge page.
I didn’t hear anything back for a while, so I contacted Paul Laberge (@plaberge) on Twitter. He got back to me immediately and before long I was declared a winner! The phones that they were offering were a bit disappointing, so I have asked to be put on a waiting list for a newer model. I would like to play with a Windows Phone and I’m kind of a gadget snob. I like fresh phones, I cannot lie.
Kudos to Microsoft for running a great promotion. I’m happy that I did it, it gave me the kick in the pants that I needed to get started writing some mobile apps. Hopefully I’ll keep up the pace and get Android and iOS apps for Shuttr [http://shuttr.com] released as well.
