I'm a WP7 - App Spotlight

Curious if you're the only Windows Phone user in your area? There's a way to find out. I'm a WP7 is a free application over at the Marketplace that will let you see Windows Phone users and developers who are in your area.

Key features of the app include:

  • Register by Location, Postal Code, or “In the Cloud”
  • See the latest WP7 Users and Developers
  • If you're a WP7 Developer, you can provide your Company Name to make it easy for WP7 Users to access your apps
  • Search anywhere in the world to see other WP7 users
  • Surprise Me button to pull up random locations, world wide, to show you the WP7 developers and users in that area
  • See WP7 developers in your area, and automatically search the Windows Phone Marketplace for their apps
  • Send messages to WP7 Users directly around the globe

There's no registration required and once you give the app permission to use your Windows Phone's location services, you're set. You can customize your profile within the app or keep it to the default settings that simply identify you as "WP7 User".

Once you download I'm a WP7, remember the title has "..." preceding the "I'm a WP7". It will show up at the top of your application lists (as opposed to mid-way down in the "I" listings).

You can download your copy of ...I'm a WP7 here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

I'm a WP7 - App Spotlight

10 Comments

This app is really awesome, but it's kinda depressing if there really is only 7,291 total wp7's out and about in the world. I would have thought it would be much more than that. What is wrong with everyone? WP7 rocks!

I'm almost positive it only counts people who actually have the app. They have no way to track every WP7 phone if they don't have the app

Been following this app for a month now. Interesting that the registered US users is about 35%. Wonder if that is representative of actual WP distribution. You could use that info combined with estimated US sales to come up with a total distributed number. Probably a fairly accurate metric.

I was using this for a few weeks, but deleted it yesterday. I didn't see any other users around me, so I thought it was working properly. But reading the post, it makes sense that I'm not seeing them if they don't have the app installed. Duh!

From the description in MarketplaceCOMING IN VERSION 1.4---------------------- Support for AMOLED and SAMOLED screensUh, so right now those users can't use the app? ;)

Hey folks, yes, of course AMOLED and S/AMOLED devices are supported, but the current theme is too dang bright. :) Version 2.0, currently awaiting approval in the Marketplace, has five (5) great themes to choose from...including a great dark screen for out S/AMOLED friends! :)For anyone interested in a general breakdown, here are the current stats after just 32 days:- Over *90* distinct regions- Almost 8,000 users- New users around every 7 minutes- US is slowly losing share, from 42% to 35%- MOST of the users are currently outside of the USLook for all kinds of great enhancements in v2.0 and v.2.5 coming in the next few weeks!{ join the movement }
