All change please

Just a note that I moved teams yesterday. I’m now focused on supporting Windows Phone 7 application development. If you’re building a WP7 application in the UK please do get in touch!

I’ll continue to blog about the cool capabilities of WP7.

  1. Sounds like an exciting move. Plus, it's good to hear there's a team focusing on Windows Phone 7 in the UK.

  2. I'm sure you're more than pleased to be playing with this awesome new tech! In a similar vein to your XNA textbox example, I'd be interested in some XNA specific (there's not enough of them!) examples and hints towards what we can do from XNA back to the device itself. For example, from XNA, are we able to affect ony of the customisations such as accent colour or background images? It is even possible in silverlight?

  3. Neil - thanks for your comment. Do you mean OS theme colours or the colouring of images in your application?

  4. Paul - Yup, that's it exactly. For me, being an XNA developer over and above being a Silverlight dev, the thing that is most interesting are the possibilities of using XNA on a phone. Sure, I _could_ write the next breakout clone in XNA for any platform but what I really want to do is to explore what sort of things I can do that affect (or take from) the settings on the phone. From the theme colours, through to direct access to the Camera; the things that make WP7 development different. The ideas that zoom through my brain when I think what I could do with live data from the camera without launching a picker.... Obviously I understand that the user experience is most important so we can't have 3rd party applications just messing all sorts up on your device, but is XNA on WP7 really just a sandbox that can't see where it's running?
