Expression Blend enables you to rapidly take your ideas from concept to completion helping you deliver innovative applications on Windows Phone. Expression Blend 4 for Windows Phone provides exactly the same streamlined development workflow for Windows Phone that was previously only available for Silverlight and .NET applications, including features such as behaviors, sample data, and the visual state manager.
As part of this release, two new project templates are included: one for standard Window Phone applications and one for applications that follow an MVVM pattern. To ensure consistency across development tools, Expression Blend leverages the Windows Phone Emulator installed as part of Windows Phone Developer Tools.
You’ll also need::
- Expression Blend 4 Beta (Expression Blend 4 Beta can be installed side by side with Expression Blend 3)
- Windows Phone Developer Tools
- Microsoft Expression Blend Add-in Preview for Windows Phone
- Microsoft Expression Blend Software Development Kit Preview for Windows Phone
