I’m a fan of Brandon Watson’s hands on approach to helping developers migrate their apps to Windows Phone. Microsoft owns the platform, but it’s beneficial to all of us in the Windows Phone ecosystem to have an easy migration path for users from other platforms. Windows Phone provides great user experience out of the box, has a good number of really great apps, but quite often not having an app that users learned to love on their current platform is what stopping them from joining us.
So we decided to join the quest of encouraging developers on other platform to join WPDEV and offer a 20,000 ad impression to every app migrated from some other mobile platform (iOS, Android, webOS, Blackberry, etc.) until the end of the year. Here is the deal.
- Have an app published in the official application store on other mobile platform before August 22, 2011.
- Port and publish it in Windows Phone Marketplace from August 22, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
- Request your 20,000 ad impressions coupon by sending links to your app on the other platform and Windows Phone platform to firstname.lastname@example.org
That is it. You don’t have to join AdDuplex in order to participate, but you are very welcome! You’ll get even more exposure for your new app and help other developers in the process. Learn more here.
