We want to tell the great stories of the many Windows Phone developers. As a Developer Hero (Reason #2), your story and app will be a part of an upcoming Windows Phone marketing campaign that will generate thousands of impressions!

Wondering how to get involved?
To be eligible for these promotion benefits from Microsoft:

  1. Your App must be published to the Windows Phone Marketplace by June 15 (by 11:59 PM PST)
  2. Your App must work as promised
  3. Your App must be new to the Marketplace or be a new version with substantial, new features or capabilities as mentioned earlier
  4. Send us an email with the following information to wp7springclean@microsoft.com
    • Your App Hub Live ID
    • Application ID
    • New App or Update to Existing App?
    • (if update) What major new features have you added?
    • Uses Live Tile: (yes or no)
    • Uses Panorama: (yes or no)
    • Uses Pivot: (yes or no)
    • Why does your app delight users?

Not every app will be selected for merchandising or promotion. However, sending us this information tells us that you think your app has what it takes to be promoted and merchandized. It also means that we will take the time to review and consider your app. The best apps that combine Functionality + Features + Great Windows Phone UX will be selected and scheduled for promotion in the following weeks.
