Well as usual I’m lax in updating this blog, so here is a catch up for the last month or two.

I managed to hit he deadline for submitting apps into the Ireland AppMeUp promo and Microsoft kindly sent me a brand new Nokia Lumia 800.  This has been donated to Action Duchenne who are planning on auctioning it off at a Dinner/Dance ball in early September.

Whilst the apps have not set the Windows Phone world on fire, they have increased my daily download rate 5 fold.   I have a couple follow up apps that I’m in the process of finishing off that utilise some of the code base of the apps I put out for this promotion.

You can download all the apps from the Windows Phone MarketPlace here:

Slogan Phone – Submitted for review

The first of the 4 apps I’m creating is finished, tested and submitted for review. Its a fun little tool for generating slogans on your phone and sharing them via the built in social media services and email on the phone.

The trial contains 100 slogans and the full app over 350 slogans.

Reading the fine print on the AppMeUp promo, I may have missed the free phone deal.  I’m still targeting getting another app submitted to the marketplace review before Friday 11th May.

Not sure how I missed this, but its a great promotion for WP7 Devs in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

In short, publish 4 apps to the market place before June 22 2012 and you get a free Nokia Lumia 800 or 710 depending on availability.  Needless to say when I spotted this last night I cracked open VS2010 and put the majority of code down form my first app,  SloganPhone.

Whilst its not going to change the world, it will be the second Slogan generator type app on the marketplace and my version already exceeds the first in features and slogan count.  Hopefully I will be ready to submit this for review tomorrow.

Provisional titles for the two apps are Weight Mate and Alien City Attack.  Couple ideas for the final app, but I can worry about that once I have got the first one out the door.

Nothing like free stuff to be a motivator.

As usual all revenue generated by the apps will be donated to Action Duchenne.
