Interesting to see Microsoft is following in Apple’s footsteps with its efforts to tightly control software which will run on it’s latest mobile platform, Windows Phone 7. It is also interesting to read today that unapproved third party apps, known as “jailbroken” apps in the iOS world, are apparently coming to Windows Phone 7.
The three creators of the software say the tool has not been designed for the piracy of applications. Rather, it’s been made to “enable and create WP7 homebrew applications that cannot be submitted to the Marketplace in the first place.” That includes applications that make use of private, or native application programming interfaces, as well as ones that do not meet Microsoft’s content guidelines and technical certification requirements–all things that would keep them from making the cut.
