« Surprising interest in the WP7 GeoBlog | Main | SG-Drive Camera Refresh Alert: Inclusion of new Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) and the exclusion of older Marina Bay traffic cameras »

It has been more than 18 months but I have finally received my sales proceeds from my WP7 Apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace: SG-Drive and NaviRoutes. It was really projects that I just wanted to get my hands wet into WP7 and XAML programming. It garnered great interest from the start since there was a glut of a WP7 developers. I suspect buying interest had waned since then because there are now tons of developers and also the proliferation of iOS and Android devices out there.

The sales proceeds I have received from the sale of those applications were only a small token amount. However, as I have said in the T&C in my WP7 applications, sales proceeds of the above will go towards charity. From the very early beginning, I have always given to charities I believe in and, most importantly, often neglected and overlooked. That said, the best mileage is to go for those 1-for-1 charities to get maximum impact per dollar.

I will update this post once I have decided on a charity to donate the sales proceeds of my WP7 applications to.

[UPDATE]: Done. Proceeds donated to Children At Risk Empowerment (CARE) Singapore.

Thanks for all your support.
