Develop for Windows phone or Windows? Then you're going to want to check out the new AdDuplex Developer Advocate Program. As you know, AdDuplex is a cross-promotion network on Windows Phone and Windows. Instead of running ads in an app, developers can help promote apps for free by helping one another. The new developer advocate program will help developers adopt and implement AdDuplex into their apps.
Windows Phone 8.1 continues to make big gains in the worldwide Windows Phone ecosystem. According to the latest stats report from the AdDuplex app advertising service, Windows Phone 8.1 is now installed on 39.1 percent of all devices worldwide compared to 24.4 percent in August.
AdDuplex, which issues a monthly report on the state of the Windows Phone hardware ecosystem, also tries to collect information on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT devices, but not as frequently. Today, it posted their latest statistics on the Windows 8 family of hardware products, and it shows that the nearly two year old Surface RT tablet from Microsoft remains the number most used devices for that operating system family.
Over the month of August, WPCentral and AdDuplex teamed up for a Lumia 1520 giveaway contest. The entry simply involved users Tweeting a screenshot of their Start screen with the WPCentral app pinned and the hashtag #AdDuplexWPC.
The contest was open worldwide, and one lucky person was walking away with a brand new Lumia 1520 for about 30 seconds of "work."
Windows Phone 8.1, which launched to the public first as a Developer Preview in April, is now installed on 24.4 percent of all Windows Phone devices worldwide, according to the latest stats report from the AdDuplex app advertising service.

It's hard to believe it's nearly August. As another month goes by I'll take a look at the Windows Phone landscape thanks to data from cross-promotion network AdDuplex. Every month AdDuplex CEO Alan Mendelevich ( @ailon) gathers data that gives us insight into the Windows Phone ecosystem around the globe. During the month of July, we're looking at an even bigger jump in the percentage of handsets running Windows Phone 8.1. Read on for more details.
AdDuplex has recently announced that its new Direct service has gone live. To remind everyone what AdDuplex Direct is all about, it's a new platform for app publishers and advertisers to arrange direct advertising placement deals, negating the paperwork, payment processing hassle and other headaches associated with locating publishers to part with their cash for in-app advertising. AdDuplex already offers a range of options for developers (particularly on Windows Phone and it's great to see yet another service added.
Windows Phone cross-promotion network AdDuplex has released a small but interesting report that shows the top 20 countries in the world that use devices with Microsoft's mobile operating system, with the US, India and Brazil as the top three territories.
Every month Alan Mendelevich (@ailon) treats us to Windows Phone data from AdDuplex. As you know, AdDuplex is his cross-promotion network for Windows Phone and Windows 8 apps. The platform is a great way for developers to gain more exposure for their own apps. Today we're getting a look at the Windows Phone ecosystem for the month of June 2014. Did the release of the Lumia 630 slightly bump the Windows Phone 8.1 install base? Which new OEMs made the list? Those are just some of the questions we'll answer. Read on for all the info you could want.

Another month has gone by since we last looked at Windows Phone statistics from data provided by AdDuplex. Last month we looked at the Windows Phone ecosystem for the month of April 2014. There we learned that Windows Phone 8.1 was already on 3.1 percent of all Windows Phone devices. How did that number do for the month of May? Read on to find out.
There's a new batch of charts from AdDuplex, and they show that Microsoft has overtaken HP to be the top manufacturer of Windows 8 and Windows RT devices. AdDuplex's data comes from integration into nearly 800 apps in the Windows Store, and it shows that Microsoft's Surface tablets are by far and away the leading devices accessing the Windows Store (which AdDuplex notes "it's safe to assume that these apps are used more on the tablets"), with the first generation Microsoft Surface RT taking the lead.
AdDuplex has kicked off the next month in the Every Phone They Make campaign, which will be rewarding developers with a chance to win a Lumia 625 and Lumia 820 for simply marketing their apps with AdDuplex. It's a great program for those who have apps submitted to the stores to win some awesome prizes. What's more is for the month of May, AdDuplex is also giving away a Lumia 1020 to the general public.
