Official Mango BBC News app available in open beta for developer unlocked devices

Here is a nice treat for those with developer unlocked devices.  The developer of the official BBC Mango app for Windows Phone 7 is making the XAP available for download, in return for feedback from devs trying it out.

The app features:

  • Double Sided Live Tiles
  • Pin individual feeds to home screen
  • Background service meaning improved live tile and breaking news notifications
  • Background caching if wifi is available to speed up the app

The dev is especially keen for background downloading and deep linking to be tested.
