Plex is an interesting application that gives you a possibility to stream movies, music and photos to your devices on a go. This is not something innovative on iOS or Android platforms but without any doubt is something extraordinary for Windows phone users. No offense, but Microsoft?s Marketplace is not that full on different useful apps. Anyway, Elan Feingold is very excited about his work on Plex application for WP and shares his impressions with us. Let?s heat this guy out: "Windows Phone felt original, well designed, and fun to use. The performance was great, really smooth in a way iOS is and Android isn?t even in ICS. The 'pivot' and 'panorama' UI concepts were fresh and a great way of making good use of a small screen in portrait mode. The typography was clean and brazen. The integration of Facebook and Twitter made them feel like first class citizens, not an afterthought. The live tiles on the home screen were a great way to make the phone feel alive. So how is the Windows Phone development environment? It?s scary good. C# is a great language, .NET is a solid framework, XAML is a really nice way to design user interfaces, and the edit-build-deploy cycle is fast. It still has a bit of growing up to do, but the proof, as they say, is in the pudding: we were able to write the app from start to finish in two months, between two engineers working part time, which is almost an order of magnitude faster than it took for the iOS and Android app."
