Microsoft has kicked off a contest where you can plead your case for whatever app you would like to see on Windows Phone 7. The community will vote on the suggestions and the winning suggestion will not only have the application developed and listed in the marketplace as a free app, the winner will get $5000 plus a brand new Windows Phone 7 (once they are available). Sounds like a great contest on two sides – first, the community gets a chance to tell Microsoft what applications they want to see and a lucky winner will see it built. Second, enterprising developers can look over all the suggestions and get a good idea on what applications the community would like to see and possibly start their own development on these suggestions.
If there’s an application that you would like to see on Windows Phone 7, or if you want to see what people have already suggested, head over to www.WindowsPhone7.com/iNeedThisApp/ The contest runs until July 8, so you have less than a month to submit your ideas and vote them up!
I’m wondering why nobody has suggested Cut and Paste as the app they want to see the most on Windows Phone 7? Surely someone is up to submitting this as a suggestion. I would imagine it would get tons of votes! 😉
