While at the Windows Phone Event yesterday, Wmpoweruser was able to talk to Brandon Watson. We asked about two of the applications that our readers are most excited about; Skype and Audible. It seems, from listening to Brandon that actually buying Skype has made the process to make a Windows Phone application more complicated from a logistical and legal standpoint. Beyond that he didn’t have any timeline to give us on when we can see Skype. To be fair this isn’t his department and he has no control over it.
The news regarding audible seems to be much more positive. Brandon said that it is one of the apps that is most requested and that he and Microsoft “listen(s) to what people want.” I got the impression from the way he said it that it wont be long until we see the audible app and from previous rumors it is actually being developed by Microsoft.
