Friday night the Hull Computer Science app for Windows Phone 7 finally got certified and accepted onto the marketplace. I say finally but it has to be said that this is the quickest an app of mine has passed through the process — taking just 3 days as opposed to the normal 5.
It’s also the first time I have passed certification first time, which can’t be a bad time. It’s safe to say that the beta I mentioned in my previous blog post definitely helped, as well as me being more stringent about having built in error checking around methods that could fail (for example a network request or file I/O operation).
If you want to download the application you can do so by clicking here.
Again a special thanks to the following people:
- John Van Rij for his help with the back end of Hull Comp Sci Blogs.com
- Rob Crocombe for general support throughout the process and the icon design
- Rob Miles for the photography used in the application
In other exciting news fellow blogger and Hull Computer Scientist, Cameron Wilby, is porting my application to iOS, the operating system which runs both iPhones and iPads. You can see some very early builds of this in the images below:
As you can see its a direct port, with all the same features as the Windows Phone 7 application. I’ll start work on the Android version soon, and then we’ll have total Smartphone coverage across the 3 main platforms! Good stuff!
