Tim Murphy's .NET Software Architecture Blog Adventures in Architecting and Developing .NET

One of the things that is important to learn when you are developing any application is how it will interact with the environment it lives in.  I’m not talking about simply interacting with files or database but with major resources.  With WP7 there are a number of things such as the photos, browser, maps and the phone itself that your application may be concerned with.

The WP7 development API includes a number of access points to give your application greater reach.  These APIs can be found here.

They APIs fall into the following main areas:

  • Contacts
  • Bing Maps
  • Camera
  • Email
  • Market Place
  • Messaging

In future posts I will explore some of these APIs.  Stay tuned.
