Microsoft makes iPorting a lot easier

I could over analyze this with a nice size article, or I could just sum it up in 2 sentences. Lets try the 3 sentences route.
1. Microsoft released a tool to aid iOS developers in quickly porting their applications over to Windows Phone.
2. Microsoft isn’t playing any more, its game time!
But what does this mean? Angry birds? Nope, those birds are already on the way. Better phone call reception…nope, that’s most defiantly not it. Well, I can’t think of anything too pressing on the iOS platform that I’ve been dying to have, but I’m sure someone out there some where had a iEnvy eye.
Exciting times to be a Microsoft fan boy indeed! Make the jump for the full details.
they are serious in what they are doing…………. I’m glad that they didn’t come up with any tool to port the existing app from Windows Phone 7 to iOS, explaining iOS have huge market and they wanted to target huge customer base.
I can think of three iOS (also on android) apps I’d really like to have on wp7: pandora, words with friends and square (though I guess even with this tool their cc reader still wouldn’t work on wp7 devices).
pandora also probably still won’t happen because of the zunepass and last.fm’s preferential treatment, but hopefully this will improve the odds of a wwf port at any rate.
slacker is as good (better in my opinion) than pandora and its available on WP7, i would go with that before holding your breath for pandora
