Silverlight program for Windows 7 Mobile Phone!

Most of us believe that developing applications for windows phone is a tough task when compared with developing applications for PC. To some extent, it is true as you will have limited access to the resources when you are developing for a phone. However, technologies these days are not just built to develop apps for a PC. As users are growing and becoming smart everyday, technologies are becoming smarter to cater the needs and to meet the demands. Mobile Phone is a common thing every man own today and anyone would accept it as a breakthrough. As the demand for Office applications are increasing, Windows phones are quite common these days. In my previous articles, I have explained how to start developing small silverlight applications.

Windows Phone 7 is the latest operating system Microsoft is offering for the mobile segment. It has a rich and interactive user interface and lot of new features. If you are familiar developing any .net applications, you can also develop apps for windows phone 7 easily.

In this post, let us see how we can develop a small silverlight program for windows phone 7.

Before you actually try to develop an windows 7 mobile application, you need to install Windows Phone 7 Developer Package. You can find it here

It includes
1. Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone
