Windows Phone SDK Available now (and new web Market Place)

| September 29, 2011 | 12 Replies

The Nokia Developer site is calling you Nokia developers to download the latest Windows Phone SDK.
Download the Windows Phone SDK 7.1 now.

If you’re going to be making Windows Phone apps for Nokia phones (and other WP) you’re gonna want to download the Windows Phone SDK.

(Image above edited just for thumbnail purposes. Also, I think it kinda looks nicer having proper landscape view. Seems more Windows 9 like)

  • tooling is now localised in nine languages to develop apps (English, Japanese, Chinese – Traditional, French, German, Italian, Korean, Russian, Spanish), as well as additional finishing touches across the tooling components.
  • The excitement for Windows Phone is real – since February of this year, the number of apps submitted to Windows Marketplace has grown from 7,000 to roughly 30,000.
  • Developers have downloaded hundreds of thousands of pre-release WP SDK over the past few months.
  • Over 75,000 developer devices have been updated – and that number is growing by the day.

Enhancements to Windows Marketplace

  • 19 additional countries where you can distribute and sell your apps (bringing the total to 38).
  • A browser-based version of Windows Marketplace now offers consumers greater discoverability of apps (oops, I forgot to post about this one. It looks a lot like Ovi Store)
  • Microsoft Advertising SDK uses Live ID integration and location services to provide you with better ad targeting.
  • Existing app authors should update their 7.0 apps and submit them to Microsoft’s AppHub to take advantage of new Windows Phone 7.5 capabilities.
  • At this time, developers from more than 100 countries who are a part of Microsoft’s AppHub can submit apps.
