Update to Champions League Final

Monday morning I woke up to an update on my Windows Phone. Not an unusual circumstance, but the update this morning was my own Champions League Final app. Cool I thought, but where is the email telling me it passed? Gone? Or have they stopped sending them? So the hunt started… Checked my Hotmail junk: … Continue reading

Hey app, stop using my data plan!

Here we are again another Friday and the development train is rolling again on a new project. So I managed to wrap up my latest app: UEFA EURO 2012, which got submitted through AppHub a couple of nights ago after using too much time playing around with graphics and stuff that I never ended up … Continue reading

Control, control, control (of data of course…)

So the Champions League Final is over now and it was a disastrous success if I do say so myself. Luckily I was sitting with my nose deep in Visual Studio almost expecting something to go wrong and rightly enough as soon as the clocked turned 20:45 and game started the feed flowed through my … Continue reading

Update frustrations in AppHub certification land

Here we are, another Friday and focus on the Champions league final has been on the table this week. My latest app “Champions League Final” entered the marketplace Wednesday and the downloads are going well as far as Google Analytics tells me. But during certification process I realised a bug in the app that I … Continue reading

The ups and downs of development

You know those times when your inspiration just flies out the window. Well this week has been one of those weeks. Getting bogged down with day to day maintenance at home and barely scraping by at work, sleeping badly and being woken up multiple times a night by my daughter. It has been time for … Continue reading

ViewSource now version 1.2 plus other updates

Here we are Friday and a couple of minor updates submitted to the marketplace. Firstly ViewSource version 1.2 was certified after just 3 days (not live yet). Adding the possibility to view full source of webpages. I figured out to use a ListBox from Telerik instead of a TextBox which is limitted in size, which … Continue reading

ViewSource updated to version 1.1

Here we are again. Slow startup after the Easter holidays. I managed to get an update out yesterday on the Marketplace for ViewSource which added history of the last 20 sites visited. I still need to do a bit of work on it. Apparently it’s not good enough for you just to see the first … Continue reading

Easter Friday and app number 3 animal sounds

It’s been my long awaited Easter holiday. So not much going on. I did spend a bit of time drafting design ideas for the website, which is running Umbraco 5: apps47.com I did manage to get going on my 3rd app, which is a kids animal sounds game. I know there are a few out there … Continue reading

App Hub certified and dangerous

One day into my Easter holiday and in pops 2 emails from “Windows Phone Marketplace Developer Support”. Not the catchiest name, but it got me clicking and opening in seconds. Also nice to get an email at the weekend, putting my idea that they didn’t work weekends to the ground! At long last LiveFootie version … Continue reading

Another week and no certifications

Here we are another week gone. I managed to package LiveFootie 9 days ago and have had the rejection that I earlier blogged about earlier this week as was the case with ViewSource, my next app ready for the marketplace. Development has been slow apart from fixing up both apps in the middle of the week. … Continue reading
