Windows Phone Performance Tuning Resources


Just thought I would share my list of resources that have helped me performance tune Windows Phone applications.  I highly encourage all developers to read these articles before they ever embark on creating a Windows Phone app. It'll save you a TON of time accounting for performance issues from the beginning and also make your app feel like a very high quality one from the get-go. But if you already have one existing, these blogs/articles should still be of huge help.
