Default How to Integrate Your App into the Music and Video Hub

One of the most promoted aspects of Windows Phone 7 is the hubs implementation. This unique aspect of Windows Phone 7 allows users to aggregate content from multiple apps and display it in one content-specific area (hub). With this design, apps can extend the functionality and utility of existing hubs, as opposed to adding yet another isolated program to run on your phone. One of the most obvious implementation examples is using Pandora or Last.FM in the Music & Videos hub. Microsoft has posted on how to properly integrate your application into the Music & Videos hub. Developers will have the ability to populate the "now playing" token, "history" tiles, "new" tiles, and the marquee. Hit the link for coding examples and more on the guidelines.

Thanks for getting me all excited for nothing. No Pandora in the MarketPlace yet, as far as I see.
