WP7 apps???

Hey,

are WP7 apps eligible for the contest? It is not explicit listed as platform for the developer contest.

Thanks

    Glad to see another WP7 developer here!

    A WP7 app doesn't seem to be accepted, no. Not to say that you couldn't use the Hosted API to develop one (or use something like PhoneGap), but for the contest purposes, we're SOL in that arena.

    Do you know for sure? Any official statement about that. Haven't looked into the SDK yet but shouldn't it at least possible with cloud account?

    Yes, I mentioned you can definitely create a WP7 app for MintChip, as you can for iPhone, Mac, or any other platform you can think of, using the Hosted API.

    But no, there's no official statement saying what *can't* be submitted; it's a lot easier to provide a list of what *can* be, which they've done.

    Another WP7 developer here!

    Even if a WP7 app WAS supported, the WP7 sdk (and silverlight) doesn't support client certificates which are required to use the hosted api.

    Well, since we have an OK on submitting WP7 apps, the WP7 developers here might be interested in this.

    Even if we have an OK on it, WP7 still doesn't support client certificates. I started a codeplex project to create an SSLStream type class that will work on WP7.

    Any help would be appreciated. Any help would also make it get finished faster and thus allow you to make your apps faster.

    thanks @Greg!!! My idea just makes sense as smartphone app.

    @Josh M count me in. I don't have much experience with this kind of stuff but I can write C# code. Just point me in the right direction and let me know how I can help. It would be great to come up with a working demo for all the WP7 developer here.

    @Jan H

    Well, apply on the CodePlex project on the link above and you can see what I've already done.
