This Nokia Developer Wiki article explains how the Namedays application is made for the Windows Phone 7. It shows how to load XML data from the server side and bind data to UI. It also illustrates how to localize the application for different languages and how to use Scheduled Task Agent to update application.
You can read the whole story and load the source codes here.
I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. This code example demonstrate how to take an image, record audio or video and save these captured media files to the Isolated Storage with the location information. These Interesting Places with media files can be later viewed and shared to the server side. This code example uses PHP server as a back end of this application. All captured media files are send 500 kB chucks with RestSharp and parsed together in the server side with PHP. This application is tested with 5 min recorded video (for example), then video file size was 55 MB and sent chucks count was more than 110. Sent was tested over normal cellular network and sending takes about 8 minutes. It worked really nice in Windows Phone 7 without Background Agents.
I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. In this article, I will show how you can access to your public and private image albums in Google Picasa (or albums which your friends has shared to you). Google offers many different ways to get image albums data, in this article I will cover JSON to get data from Google.
I have been selected Nokia Developer Champion of the Month March – big thanks to Nokia Developer Champion program!
“Nokia Developer Champion Pasi Manninen shares his new Windows Phone skill in an award-winning series of Wiki articles. An independent publisher based in Jyväskylä, Finland, Pasi has successful titles in Nokia Store and Windows Phone Marketplace.
His Finnkino Elokuvat app in Windows Phone Marketplace allows users to see film times and movie trailers for the Finnkino Theatre chain in Finland. To create the app he loads and parses XML data from the theatre’s web site, and he shares his techniques with the community. Pasi recently shared additional work he has done creating a Snake game and Weather Forecast app for Windows Phone 7.
As a Nokia Developer Champion since 2009, Pasi’s creativity and willingness to share continue to inspire the entire developer community.”
I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. In this article, I will show how to create a simple Snake Game in Windows Phone. You can move snake to different direction with gestures. Game contains simple menu, game and complete Screens.
I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. In this article, I will show how to create Windows Phone application which loads Weather Forecast from World Weather Online ‘s XML service. You can add your own favourite cities to application and it will display weather forecasts in Panorama Views in Windows Phone application.
I wrote a new article to Nokia Developer Wiki. In that article, I will show how to create Windows Phone application which loads Employee’s information from server with XML data. Loaded Employees XML data will be parsed and displayed (image 1) in ListBox Control. Selected Employee’s details will be shown in a new Employee Page (image 2). You can call, send SMS or Email messages to selected Employee.
Thanks to Forum Nokia for selecting me as a Forum Nokia Champion for another year (2010-2011). This autumn is really busy for me with teaching, but starting in December I have a lot of time to write more examples with Flash Mobile in Nokia Devices.
I wrote Flash Lite related articles and code examples to Forum Nokia Wiki and the Wiki Administrators selected me to Contributor of the Month. It is big honor to me – thanks! My articles covers features of APIBridge and S60 Platform Services API for Flash Lite.
“Forum Nokia honors one member every month for their outstanding contribution to our community’s Wiki. The contributor of the month is awarded a new S60 device. The honor is given to people that have contributed outstanding work for the month in number of articles and quality of the articles.”
“These tutorials provide working code for key aspects of Flash Lite integration with the latest S60 devices from Nokia. Each tutorial includes the Flash project, skinned swf files that can be run on an S60 5th Edition device and a tutorial guide document. Several of the tutorials illustrate the packaging of Flash Lite content into a WRT widget.”
