Welcome Home: Nokia helps move to Windows Phone

Welcome Home to Windows Phone, Mark / Space implements a Microsoft patent: This application supports iPhone users, Android or BlackBerry to Windows Phone.

First, it enables to create a full backup of your existing phone. Contacts and calendars are transferred to your Windows Live account, with the exception of data iCloud, which are not supported. Photos, videos and music are saved in iPhoto and iTunes (on OS X). We can then use the Windows Phone Connector to retrieve them.

The apps are not transferable from one system to another? Big deal! Welcome Home uses the services of search engine applications Quixey to offer the equivalent of your Windows Phone applications iOS, Android or BlackBerry. With a few exceptions, which reveal more delay than Windows Marketplace weaknesses of the application, the suggestions are rather convincing. It is however not present on your iPhone apps that are detected, but those stored in your iTunes library.

It was sponsored by Nokia, and as such is free: it is a tool to promote the Lumia range. Mark / Space has long been a similar tool to move to Android, sold $ 9.95 (€ 7.95).

A first application rejected on Windows 7 Phone

Brandon Watson had reason to commend the good performance of Windows 7 Phone and not worry about the Windows Marketplace: The Mobile Application Store Microsoft has just returned in the big leagues in rejecting his first application, Imagewind.

This application displays a stream of images from Twitter in real time, which has displeased Microsoft Imagewind proposed no filter images and a bit more daring than the average would have fallen under the eyes of young users.

The reason for rejection is not the only thing that makes it look like this matter to any eviction from the App Store. The application is actually present on the Windows Marketplace for a month, Microsoft is having "woken up" at the third update. The application developer has proposed to add a message explaining that the content was not filtered, but this was apparently not enough for the Redmond company.

The developer is then moved away: Microsoft denies its application even though unlike iOS, WP7 has no age rating in the Windows Marketplace, a solution to his problem. Imagewind is no longer available through a simple XAP file that can be used with a smartphone Windows 7 Phone hacked.
