Video: The Rejected Windows Marketplace Apps (Humor)

Today, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile Dev team released a humorous video giving a sneak peek inside the Microsoft Apps Lab. Here, you get a behind-the-scenes look at a few of the apps Microsoft dreamed up for its new Windows Marketplace, but were forced to reject for various reasons ranging from stupidity to lawsuits to physical pain.

The video is fairly amusing, but mostly because it seems like the undertone here is Microsoft prodding Apple’s App Store for both its draconian app approval process and the number of ridiculous apps in the store. This follows Verizon’s newest ad which takes on the iPhone head-on, while teasing about its new Droid device.

The video also features an virtual handshake app called the “Germaphobe” which, Mike would love!
