IdentityMine has been digging our teeth into Windows Phone 7 development since last year when we were asked to develop several WP7 applications for the platform’s release. We’re huge fans of Windows Phone, and we’ve been chomping at the bit to get our hands on the next wave of juicy updates, Codename “Mango”. Mango for WP7 is designed to make users more productive, right out of the box. All new updates allow for deeper integration so developers can take advantage of Live Tiles and Metro UI.
Our development team had the chance to put some of the Mango updates to the test when we were asked to update and share the official IMDb WP7 application with new features from Mango during MIX11. IdentityMine used new features including:
- “Surprise Me” using the new accelerometer support
- Updated language support
- Deep linking to Amazon.com to easily purchase movies
