Hi CharlesC,

Thanks for your comment - Windows Phone Apps will definitely be coming soon, so stay tuned for that. Should they be restricted to Windows Phone 7 apps only, or should it include some from Windows Mobile 6 and 6.5?

We road-tested a bunch of mobile apps to see if this tedious task could be improved. We published our findings here:
