What I Learned In WP7 – Issue 4

If you’re struggling to come up with a good icon to represent an action in your app, you should check out The Noun Project.  It’s an SVG-based site full of different, free icons that are all very WP7-styled.  From their site: “The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world’s visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.”  (The site utilizes SVG, so you’ll need a browser that supports it.  This currently includes IE9, Chrome, and Firefox 3.6.3 and higher.


If you’re a WordPress blogger, you’ll be happy to hear that there is a WordPress app for Windows Phone now.  It should be available worldwide by the time I publish this article.


Do you need to know some of the information about the user’s device in your application?  Ibrahim Ersoy has published a great article about how to get Manufacturer, Device Name, Device ID, Firmware Version, Total Memory, and current memory usage.  Definitely a good read. (c-sharpcorner)
