Hey guys ,

As most of you know , I work with the WP7 Android group . We are a group dedicated to bringing the WP7 ui to Android . I am hoping mods do not shut me down for *advertising* , but this is the only way we can do it and have it still be beneficial to us . This is 100% free , and should not be in violation of any XDA policies . If I am mistaken mods , let me know how i can fix it before locking me down .

A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone that took place in our promotion , but after 500 emails in just over 24hrs ... its time to go to the market .

Search WP7Lock .

I understand that you guys want to make money and are working very hard and I appreciate that but some people (myself included) don't have any convenient way of buying things online. No credit or debit card, no PayPal, no Google checkout, etc.

I think it would help to release some of your more basic things like the lockscreen and contacts and stuff for free, full-featured, then release the more complicated stuff like launcher and music player for a price. It would bump your sales and encourage people to try your stuff more if we didn't have to jump through hoops to get a half-working version of it.

as in, you should post the apk without any features disabled on here. Easy to get and then it will attract more people than making them go sign up for something and take screenshots and emails and whatnot and still only get part of the app.

My thoughts are similar; your project is unique (think about it, there is literally no other wp7 lockscreen for android that's been widely distributed before, same with most of the rest of your apps). If you were to release the full version for free, it would undoubtedly get more downloads, generate some goodwill and get your project coverage on sites like engadget, gizmodo, droid life, etc. through user submitted tips. You wouldn't need to skew peoples incentive to send their thoughts to engadget about the project to get this stripped down and un-updatable version because a free fully featured release would create a bigger buzz, and leave both sides in a better situation.

I understand your guys thoughts about the market. And its coming. Our current purchase system is chaos, and I recognize that. When this first started, we didn't have devs in the us that Google aloud to post in the market. Its not because we didn't want to. Now that we can, we are. Its just taking extra time. This lock will be free in the market as well as the full version. We just wanted to try this for about a week. Thanks for the kind feedback though. Were working very hard.
