Convert Your iOS Apps to WP7 With iPhone to Windows Phone Porting Tool

Microsoft has now launched an iPhone/iOS to Windows Phone 7 API mapping tool to helps developers more easily translate their applications to the Windows phone 7 API. If you’re interested, you can check out:

With this tool, iPhone developers can take their apps, pick out the iOS API calls, and quickly look up the equivalent classes, methods and notification events in WP7. A developer can search a given iOS API call and find the equivalent WP7 along with C# sample codes and API documentations for both platforms.

The code samples allow developers to quickly migrate short blobs of iOS code to the equivalent C# code. All WP7 API documentations are pulled in from the Silverlight, C# and XNA sources on MSDN.

The tool works best with Network / Internet, User Interface and Data Management apps and Microsoft hopes to expand the scope In the future versions .

Microsoft is also providing a 90+ pages “Windows Phone 7 Guide for iPhone Application Developers” white paper to get developers up and running.

The tool is available here and more information can be found at windowsphone.interoperabilitybridges.com.
