Microsoft TouchDevelop 2.2 for Windows Phone: Make Your Own Apps

The latest update for Microsoft Research’s TouchDevelop for Windows Phone rolled out this week. TouchDevelop (which was initially named TouchStudio) lets Windows Phone users create powerful apps right on the phone.

TouchDevelop v2.2: tutorial mode, improved code editor, events

TouchDevelop lets Windows Phone users create apps right on the phone. TouchDevelop apps can access music files, the camera, send photos for optical character recognition and even login to Facebook to create custom social network apps. App developers can share their apps directly from the phone to TouchDevelop.com/

The 2.2 update adds a tutorial mode, improves the on-phone code editor and adds a number of external events that can be used as app triggers (shake, phone face up or down, tap board, etc.).
