CloudFiles : Dropbox client for Windows Phone 7

Ruttensoft, the company behind the first Windows Mobile Dropbox client, Cloudfiles, is in the process of porting their software to Windows Phone 7.

They write:

Building on CloudFiles, the very successful Dropbox for Windows Mobile 6.5 Client, we are working hard to port our Windows Mobile 6.5 Dropbox Client to the much-anticipated Windows Phone 7-Platform.

As Windows Phone 7 is a complete new platform which cannot run Windows Mobile 6 Apps, we had to recode a bigger part of the application, especially the GUI. Thanks to Microsoft Blend 4, building GUI’s for Windows Phone 7 apps is really easy, compared to previous GUI-designing. It’s better not think about how much time we would have saved if previous Windows Mobile apps could have been designed using Blend 🙂

But Microsoft has done a really good job, although some developers will miss some features which are (not!) yet implemented in Windows Phone 7, building apps for WP7 with impressive GUI’s is easy as never before.

Great news, and with out own l3v5y also working on a dropbox client it seems Windows Phone 7 will not be short of cloud sync and storage any time soon.

Keep an eye on Ruttensoft’s site here for the latest developments.

Thanks Geekword.net for the tip.
