Must admit I had a bit of a Star Wars relapse while thinking about what to call this article, hay I'm only human, supposedly.
So at this point in the SilverXNA series we now have our XNA game
running with Silverlight side by side and all’s well, but surely...
Many applications have an AppBar. The ApplicationBar on Windows Phone

Most of the sample code looks like this:
been fooling around with PhoneGap Build, and I really love it. I love

Everyday I find more that I love in my Windows Phone: voice-to-text

simple and a pleasure to use.
With the big news about the Windows Store yesterday and the new flexible app trials it will bring (time OR feature-based trials), DZone thought it would be good to share a tutorial about how to create a free trial and also make money with ads during the free...
Why? Because I should be able to Get Latest and F5! I
think simplicity is a crucial measure of success in all software. I
think being able to pull down the source code onto any developer machine
and F5 is an important goal to strive for. Removing manual...
Today I read something very cool. Even for beginners like me it is relatively easy to use animations in an application.
To see how, I quickly created a new project with just a text block.
Then I located the TextBlock element in the XAML view and replaced...
Every new web technology should improve either user or developer experience, or ideally both. But even if the technologies do both of these things, finding and stitching together the right tech to use -- let alone libraries, especially in the colossal thicket...
