This is the kind of news I like to hear as a Windows Phone developer and user.  According to Millennial Media (a company I’ve never heard of), they are claiming that Windows Phone will be one of the top platforms that software publishers intend to target in 2011.  (winrumors)

In regards to my mention of how I prefer to use fonts over images in certain cases, the “Windows Phone Geek” has published an article on his Tips for Performance when creating WP7 applications. (Windows Phone Geek)

Ever wonder how other developers are able to get the PERFECT music for their applications?  I just found a site that I’ll be visiting on a pretty regular basis.  Tons of free audio tracks that are categorized into many different themes: suspenseful, grooving, humorous, dark, etc.  Just awesome. (incompetech)

I used some of the audio from that site to create demo movies of my 3 currently available applications in action.  Let me know what you think:

Crack the Code – movie | download the app

Toothbrush Timer – movie | download the app

Math Master – movie | download the app
