I am about to launch a Windows Phone 7 application and need a good background image for the application to help promote and improve the user experience. I work for myself and not a large company so I have complete control over what is chosen. I am a developer by day for a large company but do mobile development on my spare time with the hopes of starting my own business soon.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
This application is targeting users on the new Windows Phone 7 platform. This application will be launch in the first 1000 apps on the platform so it will have VERY large exposure when the phones are Launched on November 11th in the US and October in Europe. The application itself targets users who like daily deal sites like woot.com, 1saleaday.com and other daily deal sites.
I would like a 1024 x 800 PNG file format. I think the design should be light in color so it does not overpower the foreground images and text and should be something related to daily deals or sale signs. Feel free to interpret what the content should be but it should be something that attracts attention as a stand alone image as well as a background. The application's name is CHEAPSTER but you do not necessarily need to include that in the image. I am attaching a few screen shots of different sections of the app for reference.
