Things are moving right along with the Mango update to Windows Phone 7.
Starting today, Microsoft is accepting and certifying Mango apps through the App Hub, meaning new and existing titles optimized for Mango features like fast app switching, background audio, multiple and double sided live tiles, and better search integration, will begin publishing in a matter of days, according to to the official Windows Phone Developer Blog.
“Now that’s not to say that Mango will arrive on existing devices in the coming days (sorry, not quite yet),” Todd Brix, senior director of Windows Phone Marketplace, said in his blog post. “It does, however, mean that people running early builds of Mango will see these new apps and games.”
“Mango” is the codename for the upcoming update to the Windows Phone 7 operating system.
Brix goes over several more updates on bringing Mango apps to market, including the fact that game developers can now cross-submit existing games to new Mango markets (something that Microsoft had asked developers to hold off on.)
