Windows Phone Resources
Tell us about your experience with Windows Phone
I have been a huge fan of Windows Phone. My experience with Windows Phone has been really great. Windows Phone is a fast OS that’s easy to use and full of useful features. Developing for Windows Phone has pretty much been the same story. Windows Phone SDK is simply incredible, and all the resources online are great. I find the User Interface (UI) really fresh and inspiring and have even used some of its elements on my blog. I develop independently like many others, but I never feel really overwhelmed with what I’m doing.
