My own apps for my own phone RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I use VB 2010 Express to write my own programs for my own personal use, not for selling or distribution.

    I now want to do the same, but to use on a windows phone, so I will be using VB 1013

    I am concerned about all this talk about app approval, I don't want to go through this, it is only for my own use.

    All I want to know, is it straight forward to write an app, then install it and run it on my phone without having to go through any silly approval.

    I am sure it will be, but just double checking before I pay out for a windows phone

    Cheers

    Register your phone for development (free), then you can sideload a limited number of apps.

  • Your question isn't about how to code in Visual Basic. You might have a better chance of getting an answer if you ask in the Developing for Windows Phone forum.

    When you said limited, I did not thing the limit would be 2 :(

  • I believe that the limit increases to 10 if you have a paid developer account ($19/year). Information about this is confusing because the policy changed within the past year and many msdn web pages have not been updated.
