I'm a mobile developer

I'm a mobile developer

Nov 17 2012

So today I submitted my first app to the Windows 8 app store. The process was insanely easy, and being that I researched and could never figure out development on iOS or Android without a significant amount of research time, I was so surprised how easy it was to develop and submit an app to Microsoft for review.

This follows up on my recent comments about how I think Windows 8 and Surface devices are going to be a big boon for Microsoft and the enterprise. Existing Windows developers are going to very easily port over to the new platform. And since we're talking about folks who develop a lot for the enterprise, I foresee a lot of enterprise level applications coming to the platform.

So about my app? It's an easy first one, primarily a front-end to my weblog. Here's some screen shots:

Main screen listing the most recent article for that category.

Secondary screen for reading articles and viewing attached images.

It's pretty basic, but I'm using the code as a base that going to tie into a bigger project. If you remember what wwwCoder.com did back in the day with RSS feeds, then you'll have an idea of what this is going to do. At the pace I can knock out code, I think you'll see another release in a few weeks.

Oh yeah, this stuff is free. I'm promoting myself, so how could I charge for this?
