    This will be a short post on a little roadblock that was overcome.

    To-Do:
    An internal Windows Phone application that we are building for Sogeti needed to pull down a chunk of data from a server for caching & displaying on the phone.

    Interested in Windows Phone development? Then why not attend the webinar Samidip will deliver especially for all SilverlightShow members next month:

    Toaster notification is one of thousand new features that you’ll see built-in to Windows 8.

    This may well be a good feature to alert the user for certain events that may be happening inside of your system, but for many users will feel that it can get in the middle of what they are doing.

    So in Pureinfotech How-To you are going to learn how easy is to disable toaster notification in Windows 8 for all or just for certain applications.

    I finally managed to update and upload my To-Do List Reference Application. This is a Silverlight 5 application based on my Jounce framework that demonstrates a number of different features. I built it as part of my book, Designing Silverlight Business Applications. There are several chapters devoted specifically to the construction of this example application. It is a demonstration application, so while it contains a lot of different components designed to illustrate various points, it's not intended to be a "production application." I won't even call it an "enterprise application" because it falls far short of what you might typically build for the enterprise, but this one has a lot more code than your typical two-page blog post program.

    In this article we are going to see how to encrypt data and use it in Windows Phone 7 application development. Security is mainly a concern for developing mobile applications since the misuse of data like Passwords, connection strings, etc. are highly possible which we need to take care of by encrypting and decrypting where ever possible. In Windows Phone 7 we have a Data Protection API which can be used to encrypt the data. Storing the confidential data within the Application Isolated Storage or encrypting using the local keys is not highly secure since the keys that are required to decrypt the data will reside on the device itself.

    The last time we saw our drunk Vuvrian hero, he was buzzed by a couple of procedurally animated Tie Fighters, but something just wasn’t right: the animations were choppy. So, let’s turn on the GPU in the application!

    Clicking the Enable GPU Acceleration button changes the situation dramatically. The Redraw Regions stop the crazy flashing, indicating that there is no more rasterizing happening. The phone animates 3 fighers smoothly – and it can handle 10 fighters without dropping the frame rate below 20. At the same time, the emulator can handle ten fighters without any noticeable slowdown, but the desktop GPU is designed to handle Call of Duty MW3, so it is not a fair fight…

    The one thing that often strikes me when developing applications, is the amount of time spent on doing the same thing everytime. You probably know what I mean - setting up folder structure, doing bootstrapping, including Nuget package 1 and 2. In this series I'll attempt to make your life a bit easier, by creating a reusable base for any Windows Phone 7 app, and we'll utiliize the abilities within the Windows Phone 7 SDK.

    This is a four part blog series where we attempt to make a reusable base to ease development of a Windows Phone 7.

    I am always having problems when it comes to creating icons for my Wp7 apps. I am a coder and not a designer, so drawing something nice looking is really really out of my comfort zone.

    Previously I spent hours trying to draw symbols myself, but I never really liked the outcome. But lately, I found a quick and effective way to create nice looking icons for my Windows Phone 7 apps.

    One of the best Silverlight features is the support for MVVM. Recently I played a bit with Knockout.js and am very impressed with it. Knockout.js is an MVVM javascript library that has features like data binding, dependency tracking and templating. And all that goodness in 13 kilobytes!

    Developers, start your engines. App Hub is now open for submissions in the new markets I mentioned in my last post. If you haven’t done so already, I recommend taking a moment to submit your apps. It’s a chance to put them in front of new customers and get a jump on the competition in these new stores.

    Submitting your apps to multiple Marketplaces is fairly straightforward. Just visit App Hub and select the individual markets—or choose “worldwide” (even if you’ve done this before) to make them available everywhere. Here are the step-by-step instructions.
