I’ve achieved a milestone! For the past several weeks I’ve been hard at work on my first Windows Phone 7 app. You may remember that I’d started building a flickr client but stopped when Yahoo! announced that they were working on one that far exceeded anything I’d be able to accomplish on my meager budget of $0.00.
For the longest time I struggled to come up with a replacement idea but then I started playing Magic: The Gathering again with several of my friends from work. After a few weeks of playing the idea to build a utility to track the game started to develop.
I’m pleased to announce that last night I submitted version 1.0 of Magic Manager to the Marketplace. Once approved it will be available for download for $0.99.

In the coming days I’ll be posting more about my experiences developing this application. For now though it’s time to rest.
