 I personally am very much looking forward to this... it gives me an
excuse to upgrade my HTC Titan (Sprint Mogul... still my main phone)
to the HTC Touch Pro 2 :)

Plus I would pick native C++ development over java development any day
and my days of open source WM programming [M2DC] were pretty fun, but
not profitable at all.  The development costs for their app store are
a little high, but hopefully it will be worth it.

I will probably still focus on  Android because I see more potential
in Android than I see in WM, but as was said earlier in this thread,
another source of revenue is very much appreciated.

 I've done quite a bit of windows mobile programming for my day job.
The compact framework and Visual Studio 2008 are really nice to work
with. The big problem is that most devices out there in the field only
have CF2.0. So you either stick with the slightly outdated stuff (a
pain if you want to share code with any desktop apps) or you have to
deploy the CF3.5 redistributables with you app.

Other Threads

1. New app listing order in Market app search

Before today, when entering a search term into the Market app, the
results at the top of the search would all be exact matches of that
search term against the app name. For example, type "translate" and
the user will see all the apps called "translate" before the "Google
Translate" result (which is by far the most downloaded translate app).

Now, this no longer happens. If you type "translate" the first result
is "Google Translate" (and no preference is given to exact matches).

Anyone else notice this?

Note: posted on this forum partly because hardly anyone reads Android
Discuss, and partly because developers need to know how their apps are
being prioritized in app search results).
