A while ago, Gill Cleeren started a new Windows 8 article series in which he's discussing the options you have to connect your Windows 8 apps to services.

The 5th part from the series was published yesterday, read it here:

From the author:

Welcome to the already 5th part of this article series on SilverlightShow where we are discussing how Windows 8 apps can integrate with the outside world. In the 2 previous parts, we have explored some specific APIs, namely the BackgroundTransfer API for doing uploads and downloads in the background and the Tile API, where we looked using both periodic tiles for time-interval based tile updates as well as the push notifications where the server was capable of sending an update to the connected client when needed.

In this 5th part, we are going to switch gears and we’re going to explore how we can build apps that integrate with public APIs such as Facebook and Twitter. For both Facebook and Twitter, we are going to explore the way that we can authenticate with these services so that our app can access the API. Let’s dive in!
