WP7 Developer Tidbits Around The Web

A quick post on some developer-related information which do not justify a full article by themselves.


1) Does developer’s free app submissions to the Zune Marketplace reset every year?

Microsoft’s response,

Yup, you get 5 free submission credits a year, so every year you could potentially submit another 5 free applications to the marketplace (not to mention the unlimited free updates to existing free applications).

2) You can track the Network traffic from mobile Internet Explorer and  WP7 applications which may be helpful to you in some ways.


You’ll need three things:

  1. A desktop PC running Fiddler
  2. A Windows Phone
  3. A WiFi network that bridges between the phone and the PC

3) OData Browser Coming to Windows Phone 7 soon.

Given an OData service URI, you can select a collection. For more details on this app, go here. Developer is ready for beta testing as well.
