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.

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!
