A fortnight after releasing its web-based Windows Phone App Studio development platform, Microsoft says the service has been so popular it has been forced to introduce an access code system. A revamp to the system has also added new data sources, including Flickr feeds.
In a blog post today, Microsoft staffer Emilio Salvador Prieto said that 55,000 projects have been created in the studio so far. As a result, you now need to sign up for an access code to use the service if you’re not already registered.
An update to the app has also added new data sources, including Flickr, and a handful of new templates. Hit the full post for more details.
