I have published my first personal WP7 App on marketplace.
Cool, well done!
What was your experience using the Microsoft development tools, was it easier or harder to finish/publish your app in comparison to the development tools from Nokia for the "old" platforms?
I'm asking because it took quite some time for me to learn Qt, sign up as publisher, get UID's, learn how to localize an app with different languages, testing through RDA and so on. Simply said, it took only a few time to program a simple app as yours, but a lot of time for anything else. So i wonder if it's (hopefully) a bit more straight forward and easier using the Microsoft tools / platform.
I have experience in developing Enterprise level apps for Windows Mobile. Recently , I have started developing apps at commercial level. I got associated with Nokia when they launched "Windows Phone 7".
Yes, with "Windows Phone 7" development, testing and app publishment is easy.
Once the App is ready , one has to register on AppHub to publish the Apps. The App publishment process takes 5-6 business days.
It will be difficult for me to comment on Symbian Publications as i lack knowledge in that domain.
