WP7 Developer Contest: Last Chance to Enter!

If you want to be a part of the Windows Phone 7 developer contest, you’ve got two weeks left. As a reminder, the first 100 submissions will get an XDA T-Shirt. Participants will also have a chance at winning a new Windows Phone 7 device plus an Amazon gift card. Winners will become a Windows Phone Developer Hero; your bio and “appography” will be featured on the WP7 Developer Program home page.

Contest Details

The contest is pretty simple: make and submit a unique WP7 app. If you do that, you will get a free XDA T-Shirt*. There are TWO grand prizes for the best applications. Each prize includes:

– A brand new Samsung Focus
– A $250 gift card to Amazon
– A feature on the Windows Phone Developer Heroes site

Here’s how to enter:

Download the Windows Phone SDK and create an amazing app. The only rules are that the app must conform to Microsoft’s certification requirements and must be your own work. To submit your app:

Create your own App Hub account and upload it. Then fill out this form and tell us about it so you can get your free shirt and be eligible for one of the two grand prizes.

XDA admins will nominate five finalists from all submissions. TWO of these will win a Grand Prize. One winner will be chosen by a popular vote by XDA members, and the other will be chosen by XDA admins.

Need a little encouragement as you build Windows Phone 7 apps? Check out the Windows Phone Developer Heroes, showcased for their inspiring stories and admirable work in mobile development. Think you can do better? Submit your app to Marketplace today and get a chance to be the next Developer Hero!

One such Hero is Johnny Simmons, a 13-year-old that has 15 apps in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace. One of his apps, 7 Tab Browser, lets you view two web pages side-by-side, and also have up to 7 tabs open at once.

We will be accepting submissions starting today and ending on June 30th. Finalists for the prizes will be announced soon after.

*Only the first 100 submissions will get an XDA shirt. So get going!

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
