Submission + - Windows Phone 7 Apps To Live In The 'Sandbox' 1

adeelarshad82 writes: Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Marketplace is starting to sound like the iTunes Store. In presentations at the MIX10 conference, Microsoft executives made it clear that Windows Phone 7 apps will be strictly sandboxed with isolated storage, like the iPhone apps. Moreover when they're submitted to the Marketplace, which will be the only way users can purchase Windows Phone apps, they will be reviewed according to not only technical criteria, but also "business" and "content" criteria. A blog post on Microsoft's Web site makes the content restrictions a little clearer, requiring that apps "do no harm" and "are legal and of generally good taste," with porn, "hateful/inflammatory speech" and "gratuitous violence" excluded.
