Some good feedback from the App Hub.
I submitted a new app to the App Hub 5 days ago and just quickly stitched it together and threw it up. Unfortunately I had missed a few stupid Things in the rush. The error report from Microsoft was fair and with good descriptions of what I neede to fix, which I did one-handed while my 6 month old daughter was on the other arm!
Comments: The application screenshots contain frame rate counters and debug information. View this MSDN article for information how to disable frame rate counters – http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg588380(v=VS.92).aspx.
I oversaw the Whole screenshot debug info while quickly taking them during debugging… A quick fix.
Comments: The large and small mobile tile images are the generic sunburst icons.
Didn’t even think about this, as I rushed the 99px, 173px and 200px icons for the submission. Even quicker fix.
Comments: When the user selects the “view source” button the application unexpectedly terminates.
Steps to Reproduce:
3.1. Launch the application.
3.2. Select the “view source” button.
3.3. Observe the application unexpectedly terminates.
1. Double check that the capabilities required by your application are declared correctly. You can do this by running the Windows Phone Capability Detection Tool, as described at How to: Use the Windows Phone Capability Detection Tool. (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg180730.aspx).
2. Avoid hard-coded logic based on the original Product ID. If your application design requires using logic based on a Product ID, use the Windows Phone Marketplace assigned non-volatile Product ID instead.
Well done Microsoft!
See you in the Marketplace.

Another fail for LiveFootie from the App Hub, which was great as it highlighted something I hadn’t foreseen: my live score feed being terminated for some stupid subscription technicality and returning an html page instead of xml. The joys of catching exceptions. With that one handled and taken care of I could resubmit LiveFootie and complain to my feed supplier. Here’s hoping that La Liga results will be up for the weekend!
Sorry for any inconvenience! (This error also affects the current version which causes La Liga to crash at the moment.)
