Google takes a big step toward allowing their services on Windows Phone

Windows Phone Google Apps

Google is taking a big step toward allowed their services to be used on Windows Phone devices. They have released an API library for.NET. This new library will let developers who use Microsoft’s .NET framework to integrate their apps with Google services. Google has released more than 50 APIs in the library, including the popular services like Calendar and YouTube.

.NET is a software framework developed by Microsoft. it provides a lot of useful tools for Windows and Windows Phone developers. Google services were not welcomed on Windows Phone at all by Google, but this is the first time they are showing a little friendliness. This is a huge step. Hopefully we start seeing developers start utilizing this in their apps, and maybe create some dedicated apps for Google services.
