I am also going to be looking for a Windows 7 phone version of Waze. My employer is dropping Android and Blackberry's as supported phones to connect to the corporate network. This is going to force me to buy the WM7 phone.

I'm sure that this is just a man hours problem. That since this requires a rewrite, that they just don't have the staff to do so at this time. Unfortunately they appear to be a fairly small staff.

Blackberry had the same issue. It's a different architecture so it took a long time to get a version out.

My point was just to make sure that those that don't have programming background, understand that there is not an easy upgrade path moving application from windows mobile to windows phone 7.

Please feel free to try all means to show your platform solidarity, and hopefully the priority troll will turn your direction.

Please understand, that win phone 7 is a completely different platform, so this is not as simple as recompiling and deploy.

This is unacceptable, to ignore a new platform Windows Phone which needs apps from developers! If the code is there for Windows Mobile 6.5 it should not take too much engineering to make it work for Windows Phone franchise reboot?

Well that is a shame. I just got the Dell Venue Pro from the Microsoft store and it is a great device. You should be able to use some of the code from the windows mobile 6.5 app but you will need to re-write most of it. Do you have an ETA on when this would be done...that is if you think it is a worthy platform?

To be honest if I had proper API's descriptions available I'd be happy to work on an open source effort to port or rewrite Waze for WP7. I've not looked at the WM6.5 source yet so I can't speak to the ease/difficulty of doing the job...

* Update : I've had a little look at the WM6.5 code (only very briefly) and I've not compiled it so far (I need to check on some dependencies in VS2010 which I probably don't have installed) but, Waze are right here - it's not trivial so they're not going to want to do it unless they can guarantee some serious traction. But if they were to do it then they may have to endure a significant shakeup and migrate the entire codebase to mono/.net to retain their ability to target iphone, android and symbian handsets from a single codebase.
