Small note to our developer friends out there, Dotfuscator for Windows Phone has been released and as promised (via Windows Phone Developer Blog) is completely free through March 31, 2011
Providing so-called "security through obscurity", code obfuscators at least can aid a smidge in protecting developers from prying eyes and hackers (though it's far from fool proof). In this case through string-encryption. In addition, Dotfuscator for Windows Phone also provides developers with important application analytics to better understand how their software is being used and ways to improve it. For example, you can know how many people have your software installed, how often the app is run, what features are customers using the most and even performance data. Sounds good.
