Good News for Android Developers Looking to Expand

This is one of those articles that I almost hate to write but feel I must. Being dedicated to Android and supporting our developers so they can gain maximum exposure along with profits is almost an obligation.

This is one of those articles that I almost hate to write but feel I must. Being dedicated to Android and supporting our developers so they can gain maximum exposure along with profits is almost an obligation. Even if it means helping them move their app to a competitors device.

Two months ago Microsoft announced a tool that would help iPhone developers port their apps easily and efficiently to the WM7 platform. It essentially helps to translate the iOS API’s and translate them into WM7 APIs to get the ball rolling. As of yesterday, June 9th, Microsoft announced it had implemented the same tool with Android porting support.

With the WM7 platform currently only supporting some 20,000 applications, this could really give a boost to our hard working app developers and gain them a better profit margin. Which in turns means they can have the money to build better Android apps first and port them later. It is still a win/win situation for all of us. Not to mention a higher probability of cross platform connections managed by your average developer and not needing to be backed by a multi-million dollar company.

If you are a developer and really looking to expand your device support, now is just a good of a time as any other. Head on over to wp7mapping for the downloads and get some much needed information from the windowssteamblog
