On wednesday this week Microsoft launched their new Microsoft Windows Phone App Builder to help practically anyone build their own Windows Phone app without any programming experience required.
In just 48hrs over 30,000 new Windows Phone applications and projects were created using the new Microsoft Windows Phone App Builder resulting in Microsoft now having to resign in a little of the new services usage, that will now cause new signups to have to wait a day or two for access.
Users were able to create Microsoft Windows Phone apps through the web-based tool and then unlock and register a Windows powered smartphone to side-load them and test them for free. However applications created via the new Window Phone app creation building tool will not be automatically via the online Windows Phone app store. As Windows Phone developers still need to pay the annual Dev Center registration fee to have the ability to publish their apps fully for everyone to access.
“We know you – the savvy developer filled with great ideas but not enough time. If only you had a way to quickly build and test your latest innovations. With the Windows Phone App Studio, you do!
