It seems there might be a correlation between YouTube and your app downloads.  Last week, I created a walkthrough video of each of my applications, and posted them to YouTube.  Since then, I’ve seen a small spike in downloads and traffic to my apps.  If you’d like to create videos like the ones I posted in Issue #3, check out TechSmith’s Camtasia application (http://bit.ly/g1rMDL).  This is the first time I’ve really gotten into it, and I’m super impressed.  Everything was amazingly easy to understand, and the quality of the video is excellent.  It even auto-posts to YouTube for you.  Just awesome.

There were several messages on Twitter about a new repository of video tutorials over at LearnVisualStudio.net.  Some of them are trivial (like installing the tools), but for a series called “Windows Phone 7 Development for Absolute Beginners,” it’s spot on.  Check it out.  http://bit.ly/f71mCL

Because of the success that YouTube is bringing, I decided that perhaps a website would be useful as well.  While it’s still a work in progress, you can see the latest iteration of Blankensoft here: http://bit.ly/blankensoft

As a side note, if you’d like to use my web template for your own website, just contact me.  I’d be glad to share it with anyone.

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
