I have previous mentioned the Project Risk Profiler application that we built for iPhone last year. We use the application as part of our Information Command and Control seminars and as a demonstration tool. One of our Microsoft practice developers, Tim Murphy, built a version of the Project Risk Profiler for Windows Phone.
