Windows Phone Geek launches developer components marketplace

Our friends over at Windows Phone Geek, the developer-based community, have announced their new marketplace (link) that caters for developers who requires tools to help them build apps on the platform. This beta (currently invite-only) Windows Phone marketplace enables developers to buy / sell UI controls, developer tools, SDKs, app templates, source code and more.

So why launch a developer marketplace? The goal is to help developers build high quality apps and offer tools in a single location. For those who have already crafted such tools and projects, they can release them for free or earn a little revenue on the side by selling the tools to other platform developers. Submissions are stated to be free. Boryana Miloshevska, Founder and CEO of WPGeek Ltd, had the following to say:

"Our purpose is not just to list thousands of low quality components, but to list only those that really can bring value and can help developers to build better apps. So, quality and not just quantity is what we aim to achieve with the WindowsPhoneGeek Marketplace!"

Be sure to head on over to Windows Phone Geek to check out the resources available and show interest into the newly announced developer marketplace.

  • That sounds great! Although many are free from the hub & with some good reading anybody could built good quality apps.
  • THIS IS MAGNIFICENT.  The idea is very  nice, don't re-invent the wheel! People share code snippets among friends already, but this takes things to a whole new level. And for a targeted dev community with good organization  it should work magic.
  • Anyone looking to check out the COMPREHENSIVE set of Windows Phone mobile app components, SDKs, UI controls and source code that we compiled in partnership with Microsoft should check them out at .  Registration for regular updates is OPEN to ALL by registering on and you can follow regular updates on Twitter @Veriously . 
  • This is great. It's good to see this type of thing becoming available. Recently I have seen a number of great resources to help devs out. As a sole dev myself, I don't have anyone to turn to for help sometimes when stuck on something tricky. Having these types of resources can go a long way to helping.Keep up the good work.
    P.S - I have also checked out and that too is also impressive.
