Windows Phone 7 is definitely the next big thing this year, and next. The latest Smart phone operating system from the software giant, Microsoft.
It really is a great piece of software, yet many people openly admit that what will make Windows Phone 7 really take off is third party applications.
This is a big draw card for the likes of the iPhone, with over 350 000 apps. The same with Android phones, loads of apps.
This is a big challenge for Windows Phone 7 developers. Develop Windows Phone 7 applications. Post to the Windows Phone Marketplace, and make some cash.
This is great if you don’t live in one of the many countries that cannot register on the Windows Phone Marketplace.
Here in South Africa I am faced with a similar dilemma. I want to develop Windows Phone 7 apps, but what's the point if I cannot publish my apps?
Thanks to Yalla Apps, all those previously disadvantaged can now Develop and publish and sell their Windows Phone 7 apps to their hearts content.
But now it gets better, coming soon to South Africa is App Hub.
Yalla Apps has recently opened up an offering to Israel and South Africa for free accounts with them so you can start doing Windows Phone 7 development now. If you register now you will also get a free app hub account when it goes live in South Africa.
The offer is free registration for all developers in SA which costs about $99 if they register to Yalla Apps by 20th July 2011. And after that once App Hub goes live in SA– you will get free accounts on App Hub too.
All you need to do is register for free with Yalla Apps by 20 July 2011. Simply go to <www.yallaapps.com/signup> and create a free account. Once the marketplace is live for your region, you can create your App Hub account for free :)
This is how it works:
1. Register for free on Yalla Apps by 20 July 2011
2. Wait until you receive an email late July to open your App Hub account
3. Register to AppHub with the same email and name as your YallaApps account and get your AppHub subscription for free.(Microsoft will additionally verify your identity as usual)
Please share this with all your friends and developers.
