Social networking site Every Day One Thing promotes user actions to help the environment and community. Small actions can add up to global changes. Users post actions, such a riding in a car pool or recyling, on the site and into their Twitter feed.

Concord Mfg CEO Ryan Kyle explains to ISV Architect Evangelist John O'Donnell how he wrote both a Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 prototype for Every Day One Thing. The Windows 7 client incorporates jump lists and a thumbnail as the user updates their status to the Every Day One Thing site.

Kyle explains that creating the Windows client and Windows Phone applications were similar. He re-purposed the WPF application to the phone in a matter of hours.
