I found this app in the market, which is kinda like visual studio but on your windows phone device

Contains tutorials and a lot of sample projects for beginners, have fun


Script your phone! Write code for your phone, on your phone! TouchDevelop is a radically new software development environment on the Windows Phone, bringing the excitement of the first programmable personal computers to the phone.

the idea behind TouchDevelop
The way in which we interact with computing devices is changing: instead of keyboards, advanced touchscreens become more common; mobile devices are often equipped with more sensors, such as location information and acceleration, and are always connected to the cloud.

TouchDevelop is a new programming environment and language built around this new reality. Its typed, structured programming language is built around the idea of only using a touchscreen as the input device to author code. It has built-in primitives which make it easy to access the rich sensor data available on a mobile device. In our vision, the state of the program is automatically distributed between mobile clients and the cloud, with automatic synchronization of data and execution between clients and cloud, liberating the programmer from worrying (or even having to know) about the details.

Well I tried it.. you can do a a couple of stuff, but I don't think it is actually useful for developing qualitative Apps.
In my mind this Application is more useful for schools, where teachers want to show their students how easy it is to develop stuff, or "the new generation of Coding Editors"..

I mean sure, you can create some interesting apps and, if you put effort in it, might even useful Apps(!) but for me it looks like something you can play with when you are bored..

But it might be interesting for those who are new to WP7-programming or are new to programming at all..

But nice app anyway!
