Some of you may recall that in order to keep my Samsung Focus Flash my Evil Squash application had to be accepted onto the Windows Phone Marketplace by 23rd December (Today!). I had been somewhat worried about this happening seems as the application had already been denied twice due to relatively minor things (I’d mis-typed a link, which caused an application crash for my first rejection and I had debug information in 2 of my screenshots to be displayed on the Marketplace for my second rejection).
Fortunately I was contacted by Grace, a Microsoft Representative, informing me that I would be able to keep my device if the application was on some time soon as they could see I’d made the effort to get it in the store. I must say that Microsoft have treated me very well, and they’re a pleasure to work with.
In the end this didn’t matter because today I received an Email saying that Evil Squash had been accepted into the marketplace and would be available to the public soon (I’ll post as soon as I notice its available.)
The screenshot you can see above shows the developer dashboard at create.msdn.com which shows that my app has successfully passed all 3 stages of certification.
Thats all for now,
