Doesn’t Get Any Easier Than This

Microsoft has just launched a new Windows Phone app builder website, Windows Phone App Studio. You can now build a great looking app in no time and earn a free phone from me in the process. You don’t need to be a great programmer, but if you are… you get the source code for the app when you’re done with the template! No other app builder does that for you.

Just a few easy steps to make your first Windows Phone app AND you get to unlock your phone in the process.

Pick one of 12 templates that best fit your idea. From fitness and sports to inventory and business store fronts.

Final summary and app generation and you’re almost done..

Now just generate the app files, you’ll get a XAP file that you can now side load on your phone or you can download the source code and compile it yourself (recommended).

Now that you have an easy way to get your first app done, there’s no excuse I shouldn’t be putting your mailing address on a new phone 🙂

      You need to be in my region [see my about page], and have published an app or updated an app in the past 6 months. This offer is good until I run out of phones (which isn’t anytime soon)

    Sir, I have seen About Page. You are really Great!. You are motivating new Windows Phone Developers and helping them lot.
    Unfortunately, I’m missing all support and offers from you. May I Know Is there any Nokia Developer Ambassador in India who is like you to help us and support??

    It Would be great if you help..

      There are only 9 Nokia Ambassadors, of whom cover only the US/Canada, but you could reach out to your local Nokia Champion to see what is available in your area. Keep in mind that Nokia Champions are not employed by Nokia (Ambassadors are). They don’t have the same access to resources that Ambassadors do, however don’t let that stop you from reaching out and connecting with your community. I have been trying to expand these resources to be available to Champions, for example Mat Cavanaugh of South America, to better help their respective communities. You can find a list of champions here.
