Windows Phone 7 Developers Can Finally See How Their Apps Are Selling
When it comes to selling things — be it apps, t-shirts, or clumps of hair — you’ve gotta be able to monitor sales. You’ve have to know what’s working, what’s not, and most importantly, whether or not your efforts are going to put bread on the table next month.
It was a bit surprising, then, that Windows Phone 7′s app market launched without any sort of sales monitoring tools. Since its European launch back in mid-October, most WP7 developers have sort of been in the dark as to how their applications were doing.
Fortunately, Microsoft is doing away with this rather nasty hang-up; as of this morning, developers are getting their first look at how their apps have been performing over the past few months.
