Welcome to the Part 2 of my blog series for developing for Windows Phone. In the previous blogs we started from the Getting Started Guide, learned the importance of idea exploration and the need for sketching the idea as navigational map. Then we looked into the various tools and technologies that come as part of the Visual Studio IDE and Windows phone SDK, etc. We also explored the advantages of numerous pre designed templates available on Windows Phone platform. We looked at the options of creating games using XNA, C++ (DirectX), we also explored the section on multi resolution, capabilities, Windows live tile guidelines and icon guidelines.
