    Hello developers. I'm pretty young Windows Phone developer. I live in country where most users use Android and there are no a lot of WP programmers so this is very nice topic for me and any other WP developers :) I have 2 apps in store up to now, actually 2 games. They are quite simple and easy. These are my first games so don't be hard to me :P Here they are:

    Dodge birds:
    Dodge birds | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Very simple and easy to play game when you are bored. You controll 2 birds by swiping left or right.

    THE Ball:
    THE Ball | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    This is another easy to play game. All you have to do is to keep your ball on platforms and get higher result.
    I'm working on new games and apps and I hope to release them soon :) Thank you.

    WOW... What awesome response we've seen in the past 24 hrs! Thanks all!

    I'm going through all posts here and will be adding new developers very soon. The WPC Developer Program is really shaping up!

    Is your Dev program free? I want to join because, as a C#/ASP.NET/MVC Web Developer for many years, I've always wanted to jump into Windows Phone dev, but couldn't get my mind around why I needed another layout/markup language (XAML). Fortunately, with my new Surface Pro 2 set up for development, a recent job change, and the new Universal Apps, I have revived my intrigue in applying my many years of development experience to building apps that go beyond the typical... I want to give people easy, does-one-thing-[REALLY]-well user experiences!

    I'm a developer that currently focuses exclusively on Windows Phone and Windows 8. I've published one game that has done reasonably well (30k downloads in about 2 months). It's called Gun Frenzy and is a graphically rich, 3D shooter that features 28 levels and dozens of enemies to fight, including big boss battles. It works on all Windows 8 phones, including those with only 512 MB of RAM. Some screen shots below:

    I'm also working on another 3D title right now which is a turn-based, tactical RPG. It will also hit Windows Phone first. Some screen shots of the work in progress below:

    I would LOVE to get into this program. I've been trying to get the attention of the good folks at WPCentral for a while but with no luck. Would love some coverage for my games.

    I'd like to join the program as well!

    I've been developing a music app powered by OneDrive for quite some time, and I'm hoping to start putting out early builds for testing sometime soon.

    I am a WinRT and Windows Phone app developer. I basically developer apps for my company and develop and test apps since i like doing them. I code apps in c# + xaml. I am also a unity game developer both personally and work as a game developer for my company. So, i think this would give me a better chance joingin the WPCentral Developer Program. and i am a very big wpcentral fan.

    Hi James, I'm also interested in joining the program. Had one of my app featured by WPC, Skyline which skyrocketed its daily download. Since, it has been featured multiple times in the store. Thanks again for that.
    I have 7 apps currently with over 18000 downloads. I'm focusing on design since Metro makes me love Windows Phone. I've been dreaming about tiles since I was 15, 10 years ago. LOL. So it is hard to move to another platform which is visually totally different. I like searching for improving app design, UI and UX which are hardly discussed in the community understandably since we have more developers than designers. My dream is to push design within the platform. If Microsoft can't do it, we can do it together.

    This is great news! Thanks for the opportunity!

    I'd like to join this program. I've been maintaining two apps in the Windows Phone Store and am currently working on my first (simple) game. I like having more sources of developers and conversions; discussing possible issues, frameworks API concerns and general tips and tricks. Particularly at all levels. The more resources available for info and sharing the better.
    Additionally, I think having this in a nice spot like WPCentral will be a good bridge between consumer and dev conversations.Of course the huge plus is a front page advert. I've seen this on other sites, and it can be done well when they accept it (and admittedly one of my apps could use some more face value). All that and a bag of chips (optional) I'd love to join.

    The two apps I develop currently, solely have been posted here prior :
    Shopper Calc: Shopper Calc | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    Who's Got My Stuff: Who's Got My Stuff | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    ​Looking forward to this to grow and support the community.

    I would like to join because I'm a newbie and have only published one app to the WP store and that too made on Appstudio. I don't think its even worth mentioning here. Just for elaborating my point, it only got 550+ downloads in my first 6 months which has made me less enthusiastic than I was before. I'd like to rekindle my passion in developing by learning how to actually develop, where can I find the best resources for developing, where are the best tutorials, where is the place to advertise, developer success stories and things like that.I'm not looking for making money on apps or just getting more apps and downloads on the store,I actually want to learn from successful developers and also learn a bit about coding as well. :)
    And now with the yearly renewal fees for developers removed, this could help me in the long term as well :)

    I am a beginner developer and I'm learning WP coding and I am developing a few apps currently. Some of them are : MickPhone OS, MickNews.,
    MickOffice, MickPeople, MickTube; etc. Also I'm making a cool phone concept which I'll sugest for MS, hear this : I'm thinking real high end transparent smartphone, PureView rear cam, dual front cam, but the second front cam we'll be used for making the holographic projection; which opens swipe up from the bottom and get it and the screen can be resizable. Also add to it smartwatch, and here you go. I'll make apps as Mick Corp. and it would be real huge for me, because I'm a young child developer.

    I'm totally a newbie at developing but I'd like to extend my knowledge and to start developing apps for WP. I only have a minor knowledge about C++ but that's not enough to develop an app. So far I haven't developed any app but I think that wouldn't be a problem to join this program since I like to get started and learn something about developing apps and games.

    I have been developing Windows Store Apps since Windows 8 was released in 2012 and couple of my apps (Meme-Generator and Elements: The Periodic Table) have been popular with the users in the Store.

    I started with the Windows Phone development this March and have 6 apps on the Windows Phone Store. It would be great to interact with the fellow developer community and getting featured on WPCentral.

    Windows Phone Apps:

    Periodic Table
    DoF Calculator™
    EMI Calculator™
    Unit Converter™

    Windows Phone Games:

    Football Players Quiz
    Flagz

    I'm a part time developer. I chose this route bc 1) I want to see the WP platform succeed. 2) There are some apps I would like to see, but no one has quite nailed it. I figure I could learn how to dev and create my own apps. I'm not worried about making money, I just want to have apps that work the way I want them to work.

    I'd also like to join. Why? Why not? I'm an experienced software developer, teacher and consultant, with limited ability to develop WP apps in my free time, but I still hope to get around to publishing one someday. I just have other private projects to complete first.

    Hello everyone,
    I am a C++ WinApi Programmer but i think its time that I move toward developing apps for Windows phone and Windows 8. I have been working to get everything in motion and I should have my first app out in about 2 months.
    In the past I was big with Android, mostly rooting and modifying the ROM. After I decided to make my move to Windows Phone I was shocked at the Quality of the Apps. There isn't even a great Video Player or Music Player in the App store. There are about 10 apps that I had on Android that i don't have on Windows so i decided to start writing.
    I would love to be in you Developer Program, being able to group with others never hurts.

    Hello!

    Being part of the program would be great.

    The most popular app that I can share with WPC is iFunny, which is in the top 10 of Best Rated Entertainment apps, as well as the top 10 of the Top Free Entertainment apps. We've recently updated iFunny with even more funny pic feeds, and now sport more than 300 new LOLs every day. Browse through popular, comment on, and share (facebook, twitter, sms, email) your favorites with anyone and everyone. Works on WP7, WP8, and WP8.1 for all your time-wasting needs. With over 31,000 reviews, and a 4.6+ average, you know it's gotta be good. But it's better than that... It is. so. amaze.

    Being part of the program would be awesome, to share tips, help cross promote, and get a better understanding of how to monetize apps on the Windows Phone platform (ad providers to use, etc.)

    Cheers!

    Hi....... I am from India and new to app development. Currently, I have not created any app. I really want to be a part of your development program. I just love your website because it has teached me how to use my Lumia like a pro. By joining your development program, I would like to help others and also learn many more things from other developers on developing of apps. I would be grateful if you add me into your development program.

    Thanks 😉

    This is a great idea!

    I'm very much a newbie. I released an app called Mixing Basics in the Windows Phone Store, but that was done using the App Studio site... it didn't really turn out as well as I would have liked. Still, over the past year I've been slowly teaching myself C# and XAML, and hopefully I'll be able to have a decent grasp on things by the time Threshold arrives... I'm really excited at the whole Universal Apps thing. I'm a musician first and foremost, so my programming education is going to be with a focus on getting out quality, beautifully designed apps out for fellow musicians!

    Hey guys, My name is Rafael and i am a Windows Phone developer from Australia. I am working on a couple of apps for the Windows Phone and Windows RT platform utilizing the new Universal apps templates from Microsoft. I would like to join this program because it could help the Australian people find my app which is aimed at helping the new drivers get their L license. I saw many apps on android and iOS that simulates the driving test, however the NSW RTA will not make an app for Windows RT or Windows Phone so i am doing this to help the people.
    I am looking for help in making my app reach as many users as possible and also some tips in UI design (I am a programmer, i can code, i can't draw LOL)

    Thank you WPCentral for this great chance you are giving the WP developers all around the world.

    Rafael
