<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-02-16/microsoft-phone-sees-app-activity-rise-on-nokia-deal.html' target='_blank'>http://www.businessweek.com/news/20...nokia-deal.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><img alt="Businessweek Logo" height="54" src="http://assets.businessweek.com/images/bw-logo.png" style="vertical-align: top; border: 0;" width="235" /></p><p>According to an article found in Businessweek, Flurry Inc. has indicated that interest in WP7 app development has increased significantly since Microsoft announced their partnership with hardware giant Nokia.&nbsp;</p><p>In fact, when it comes to new projects, WP is now ranked as 3rd behind Apple and iOS.</p><p><em>"New projects for Windows Phone passed Research In Motion Ltd.&rsquo;s BlackBerry and now rank third behind new apps for Apple Inc.&rsquo;s iOS and Google Inc.&rsquo;s Android, Flurry said. Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft, which agreed last week to have its Windows Phone software power Nokia handsets, is working to turn around market-share losses to Apple and Google. A wide variety of applications is critical to attracting mobile-phone users"</em></p><p>While the overall percentage of new projects is still only at 4% (up from 1%), this is definitely a move in the right direction.&nbsp;Nokia has a large international appeal.&nbsp; With their commitment to Windows Phone, developers are likely seeing the potential for their applications and games to reach millions, if not billions, of people around the world.</p><p>Developing apps for Windows Phone may have suddenly went from a labor of love, to a real practical business strategy for maximizing profits.&nbsp; It's amazing how much could change so quickly isn't it?</p><p>How do you feel about the growth?&nbsp; Talk about it in the forums!</p>
