Microsoft Event Will Have Live Tile App WallApril 28, 2011 No Comments
When Microsoft debuted the App Wall at Mix11, some people were enthusiastic, others were grumbling about how the tiles should have been live. Well apparently Microsoft was listening because in an upcoming ‘Mango’ event Microsoft will feature a Live Tile app wall.
I am reaching out to you to gauge your interest in having your app participate in an upcoming â€˜Mangoâ€™ event. If you are interested in participating, please reply by Thursday of this week (April 28, 2011); we will need to receive the files by noon PDT on Thursday, May 4.
As a Windows Phone developer, you are likely aware that we unveiled the developer platform for the next major release of the Windows Phone, codenamed â€˜Mangoâ€™. We have an upcoming event where we would like to feature your app as part of a â€˜wall of live tilesâ€™ display to highlight the interactivity of the Windows Phone. For this display, we will be using a series of three screens, side-by-side, to create a single logical screen that demonstrates a subset of WP7 app live tile in action. The live tiles on the screens will update at a relatively frequent pace, providing the experience of live tiles in action.
If you have an app (or apps) that you want to include in this live tile display, please respond to this email by Thursday (April 28, 2011) just so I know you are interested. Then, upload the ZIP file (described above) no later than noon (PDT) on Thursday, May 4th using the following:
I realize this is short notice but this opportunity has just come up and I want to extend the opportunity to you to show off your Live Tile vision at the event.
I can’t wait to see that baby in action. Oddly enough we here at WP7Connect have recently launched our own app wall. So if you haven’t checked it out now might be the time to do so.
