Don’s Blog makes the point that coding for Windows Phone 7 is easier than iPhone.
My thoughts on iPhone coding a master-detail set of two views on iPhone versus Windows Phone 7 and why the designer-developer story is better with the Microsoft toolset thanks to Expression Blend and the C# language.. This is just an opinion piece, but realize I am not a newbie at either platform.
When I see even governments paying excessive amounts to iPhone development houses I wonder if that’s the best use of the money, just because it’s popular.
Well, developing for the popular handset is a good use of the money because developing for Windows Phone 7 nomatter how good the tools are would be a complete waste of money due to the market penetration of the OS being precisely 0%. Or even 0.00%
And without users, what’s the point of developing at all?
Now, you can argue that there’s huge numbers of Symbian users out there but these guys ween’t buying apps before and they’re not going to start now.
It can be the easiest or the most difficult platform to develop for. But without users, why bother?
