Windows Phone Series 7

Windows Phone appointment task

I am currently working on a new version of my AgeInDays app for Windows Phone. This app calculates how old you are in days (or weeks, depending on your preferences). The inspiration for this app came from my father, who once told me he proposed to my mother when she was 1000 weeks old. That left me wondering: how old in weeks or days am I? And being the geek I am, I wrote an app for it. If you have a Windows Phone, you can find it at http://www.windowsphone.com... ......

Windows Phone and IconicTile updates

The project I work on right now is a fun one. It has all sorts of technology mixed. The base application is a Windows 8.1 with a Windows Azure Mobile Services backend.

Windows Phone 7 event

This might not be of interest to anyone living outside of the Netherlands, but I still wanted to share this.
