Daenet team is proud to announce the first version of the WpWidgetLibrary – HTML Widget for Windows Phone – library for building HTML5 apps on Windows Phone mango. The latest update for WP 7 enables the usage of HTML5 content via the Marketplace. These Applications always need to be hosted on a webserver so they are not useable offline. Even for Microsoft itself this issue was a problem without solution.
