Microsoft adds features to Windows Phone Dev Center

As Microsoft adds more and more apps to the Windows Phone Store, it's also taking in feedback from the many app developers who are submitting their creations to the Windows Phone Dev Center. This week, Microsoft announced it has added a few new features to Dev Center, using comments that have been written to its UserVoice forums.

As described on the Windows Phone developer blog, one of the new changes lets app creators cancel a submission to the Dev Center if they need to make some last minute changes. Previously, the Dev Center had to complete the app submission process once the "Submit" button is clicked before any changes could be made. The blog states that " ... now from the lifecycle page you can cancel an app submission, make changes, and then submit again."

Two more changes relate to displaying screenshots for apps in the Windows Phone Store page. The Dev Center now allows screenshots of apps to be rotated in the Dev Center UI itself, so the app creator doesn't need to use an image editor for this purpose. Also, if a Windows Phone app supports multiple screen resolutions, app creators can now just upload the highest resolution screenshots into the Dev Center, which then automatically generates what the lower resolution screens look like.
