Executive Caddie on Windows Phone 7

10 minutes, 43 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

We met James Vertisan, the CEO of Executive Caddie, at a Windows Phone 7 Firestarter event last Fall. James was extremely impressed by the features and potential of Windows Phone 7, and set off on moving his successful iPhone application to the new platform. Four months later, Executive Caddie has a number of products in the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace, including Executive Caddie,  Golf Rangefinder, Golf GPS, Golf Shot Tracker, and others.

I talked to James at his office in Tampa, Florida about bringing Executive Caddie to Windows Phone 7 and about his companies use of Microsoft technologies in building out a set of products and services that can help golfers get the most they can out of the game.
