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!

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
