    If you’re developer, you’re familiar with user reports as “your app just crashed.” And before you can find out what the user was doing, it can last for a few hours or even days. This is even worse on mobile applications – if user will get two or three unexpected crushes, he will simply throw your app away and download a new one (don’t fool yourself, that your app is the only one with one super-cool functionality) . So getting error reports from your app is crucial for user satisfaction.

    The Windows Phone Mail app has, when you’re in an email, a respond button which when tapped, brings up three further options, as illustrated below:

    On the left we have the icons on the application bar, tap the respond button (on the left) and you get the options as shown in the picture on the right.

    There is, however, no way of doing that in your own apps, so I created this control that does it.

    Today the Bing team announced the release of their WinRT Bing Maps control (BETA) for XAML applications.  First the goods:

    If you are familiar with the Silverlight control, it is similar in nature to how you would use it in your XAML Metro style app.  Here’s some helpful tips that are in the docs but just wanted to elevate them because we have a tendency not to read docs :-).

    This blog post provides an implementation of IPagedCollectionView which allows paging of data from the server. An IPagedDataSource is introduced that allows any paged data source to be plugged in, with the standard controls such as DataPager making it easy to create paging applications.

    One thing that’s surprisingly hard to do on the Windows Phone is take screenshots of your application when it is running. Here’s a really simple solution that I coded up while working with some customers – you just give it an interval of time and it’ll take screenshots every few seconds, storing the resulting image as a JPEG in isolated storage.

    This is useful for apps that need to be running on a real device, or if you need to capture transitions or difficult-to-reproduce actions.

    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterThe purpose of Colin Eberhardt in his Metro-In-Motion series is to provide an implementation of the ‘fluid’ UI transitions and effects seen in native WP7 apps but absent from the Silverlight APIs. In this post, he describes the development of a rolling list location indicator.

    So far I have covered fluid list animations, ‘peel’ animations, flying titles , a ’tilt’ effect and finally SandwichFlow which brought all these effects together and the series to a close. However, a recent StackOverflow questions inspired me to implement another fluid UI effect found in the native calendar application.

    In this post you will find a pic and video of the Windows Phone 7 XAML Design Templates.

    Just got turned on to the Windows Phone 7 XAML Design Templates. These are essential. The Blend team have done the hard work to figure out all the common layout scenarios and provide templates for usage. This makes doing layout for Windows Phone 7 apps brain dead easy. Love it.

    In this step-by-step tutorial coming from the the Microsoft Expression blog is demonstrated how to insert a Silverlight video into a page.

    The Insert Silverlight video feature requires Microsoft Expression Encoder, which is installed with Microsoft Expression Web. Expression Encoder is used to encode video and to provide video skins. In addition to the streaming web playback format, Expression Encoder can encode in other formats, including H.264 and WMV for podcasts.

    In this post of Corey Schuman you will learn some interesting facts around one of the new additions to Silverlight 4 - the NotificationWindow.Image

    This type of window enables you to show a System notification much like when you receive an Outlook new mail notification or a Growl notification in OSX. Since it operates like a system message, this feature is only available in Out of Browser (OOB) scenarios.

    This example shows how to instantiate a NotificationWindow, with the resulting application like the below screenshot.
