@felix9: I registered 10 days ago, still waiting on geotrust to approve me. The thing is this all seems a bit over kill to me as all I want to do is download my app to my phone. If I wanted to publish an app in the Market place I wouldn't mind the wait.

Here's a link to my WinMo app on Skydrive if you want to grab and submit it:
