Microsoft's Windows Phone developer team is offering a splendid deal for developers to get promotion and advertising for apps with up to seven apps being featured in campaigns funded by the team. Apps will be located in banners published across the MSN network of web properties, featured in the Marketplace for a single day, and receive potential PR promotion.
Unfortunately, to enter you must be a registered App Hub developer and reside in the U.S. Simply publish your app on the Marketplace and fill in the registration form found via the link below. Deadlines for the programs:
- 25/10 – For December 2011 campaign consideration
- 16/11 - For January 2012 campaign consideration
- 22/12 – For February 2012 campaign consideration
Head on over to the campaign to register your apps with selections being made on the following criteria:
- Originality & innovation: Uniqueness of idea
- Consumer friendly: Easy to use and engaging
- Look and feel is consistent with Windows Phone 'Metro' user experience: e.g., panorama display
- Integration of App Connect when relevant

C'mon, US only again? Yet this is the only country that has not released any new devices nor aired any new adverts, makes little sense. Have to aim for the world, MS!
Half a well done, least pick US and some other countries.. why just us again? there are loads of developers in other countries which probably have some really good apps!
