TechEd video challenges developers to create better looking Windows Mobile apps

In this TechEd video Microsoft MVP’s Andy Wigley and Andrej Radinger discuss how developers can create attractive user interfaces that match that of the iPhone, even while using the built-in controls, with a bit of modification.

The Apple iPhone has set a new benchmark for the appearance and usability of mobile apps. There is a widely held perception that Windows Mobile apps cannot compete in this respect, but there is a new generation of apps coming along that look just as great and support touch gestures. True, the standard controls in the Visual Studio Toolbox look a bit ‘Windows 95-ish’, but armed with some fairly simple programming techniques, a little knowledge of how controls get painted on the screen and the skills of a decent graphic artist, Windows Mobile developers can create applications that look great–and enjoy the far superior productivity that developing with the .NET Compact Framework gives you.
