GCC Windows Phone App

Greetings! RJ has done us a great service by making a Windows Phone app for the GCC website. As one for the Buckeye Pokemon League was released recently as well, I’ll just copy-paste that post and change it up a little.

Some of you might be happy to know that there is now a GCC Windows Phone app, made by RJ. I asked him to talk about it:

Ummm…. I don’t really know what to say… it just takes the news posts from the website and that’s about it haha. Oh, you can comment on things. And the contact link emails you.

The app syndicates the news posts from the front page. You can also add comments as a guest (may be subject to review before being put on the site for anti-spam purposes).

At this point, you’re probably wondering about iPhone and Android. Not anytime soon, unfortunately. We answered that:

RJ: The rest of you can tell Apple and Google to give me a free phone for making apps, because that’s what Microsoft did They’re actually making it really easy for new developers to get on board. I’ll probably move onto Android eventually, since last time I checked Apple required you to have a Mac to develop for iOS. This is but a starting point on my epic quest to take over the world with my internetified programification!!!1!1one

Brian: Windows Phone was indeed the easiest. Both Apple and Google require actual money to be paid to become developers ($25 dollars for Google and $100 for Apple, even if the apps are free). Windows is currently free for students. Windows Phone also did have the promotion where students could build two apps and get a free Windows Phone.

A similar app is also reportedly on the way for BuckeyeLAN.

One thought on “GCC Windows Phone App”

  1. From the screenshots, it looks like a nice little app. I like how it mimics the website theme.

    To be fair, the price for iOS can be justified by the market you’re opening up. For monetizing apps, the Appstore’s userbase is unparalleled. Android and WP don’t sell as many copies for most developers. That’s speaking for paid apps though, where your goal is to make as much as possible. For freeware, it’s hard to justify investing in a Mac and a dev account.
