Default Microsoft Provides iOS to WP7 API

Although the Windows Phone Marketplace recently hit 15,000 apps, it is still dwarfed by the Apple and Google offerings. The bottom line is that to continue to grow, Microsoft will need to attract some of the developers from rival platforms. In that vein, Microsoft has created a white paper and new API that helps developers quickly port their apps from the iPhone to Windows Phone. The API functions as a translation dictionary, so that developers can look up equivalent classes, methods and notification events in WP7. Although the API will initially be limited to those classes and methods that have a WP7 equivalent, Microsoft is seeking suggestions from developers on how the API could be extended at If you are an iPhone developer and looking for a quick and easy way to develop for Windows Phone please leave your comments on the new API below once you have a look.
