WP7 Developer Contest Finalists: Winner Announced
Voting has closed, and the second winner is: Voice Memos Light by Dhivehisoft. Congrats to that winner! Thanks again to everyone that was a part of this contest. Original post follows:
After filtering through dozens and dozens (and dozens) of entries for our Windows Phone 7 developer contest, we have the admin-chosen winner to announce, plus it’s time to open up voting for the other finalists–so we need your help. As a reminder, the winners get a brand new Samsung Focus and a $250 Amazon gift card and will be featured on Microsoft’s WP7 Developer Heroes website.
First, the admin-chosen winner is…. ToDo Free by AwesomeMic! It’s a simple application with a metro-inspired interface that helps you keep an organized task list. What’s more, it has a Live Tile component, so you can keep an eye on your task list from the Start screen. Best of all, ToDo Free is–free! Check it out.
Now, for the six finalists. If you have a Windows Phone 7 device, we ask that you help us with the voting process and check out the following apps.
Also, anyone that provided us with a valid app, plus a t-shirt size and address (as requested at the start of the contest) will get an XDA T-Shirt in 6-8 weeks. Thanks for your patience as we process all of the shirts!

However, Theme Store...
There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade.

Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it. In fact, we made...
