So whilst doing this and getting to grips with WP7 development I started hearing about how Windows Phone will be changing (Mary Jo-Foley’s blog, Windows Phone dev blog) and that for Apollo, the next Windows phone OS release, Microsoft will make Windows Phone use the Windows 8 kernel.
My first reaction is why? why change it, Microsoft as a company need to get as many companies/people developing apps on

Just a short post as currently all my time is taken up trying to get my first Windows Phone 7 app completed which I’ll blog about once its all done.
When I started my WP7 dev, me being me, I went TDD from the off but ran straight into an issue where I couldn’t fake the IsolsatedStorageSettings.ApplicationSettings which I’ve been using for data storage.
As I’m new to the platform I decided to live with it but last night I created code that I needed to test around storing data so I decided enough was enough and created a little wrapper class so I could fake the ApplicationSettings class.
Thus is born my WP7.TestHelper assembly where I’ll add any other classes that I find where I need to fake them for testing and you can’t do it out of the box.
As usual you can find the code in a repo on my GitHub.
