We’ve made some updates to the Nokia Lumia Developer’s Library and want to share with you what we’ve done. The February 25th update includes: additional guides on NFC and proximity in Windows Phone 8; a guide to testing your Windows Phone application on a real Nokia Lumia device using our Remote Device Access (RDA) service; an overview of the services provided by Nokia Developer for Lumia developers; and new sample applications, including how to use Nokia Music API.
Here’s a summary of what we’ve updated this month, along with links to the updates:
- New article: Nokia Lumia developer services. An overview of the resources and services provided by Nokia Developer for Windows Phone and Nokia Lumia developers.
- New article: Remote Device Access for Nokia Lumia. An introduction and guide to using Nokia Lumia phones in Remote Device Access (RDA).
- New article: Utilizing Nokia Music API – Music Explorer example application. Shows how to use the Nokia Music API, including a sample application, Music Explorer.
- New section: Proximity and Near Field Communication.
- New article: Using NFC to exchange information. Describes how to exchange information over NFC between two devices, or between a device and a tag. These two slightly different use cases are both explained in this article because on Windows Phone 8 they are implemented using the same API and in a very similar way.
- Updated content: Using NFC to establish a persistent connection (replaces “Opening Sockets using NFC” article). Describes how to implement a tap and connect experience, using a simple peer-to-peer chat application – NFC Talk – as an example.
- New section Code Examples. Now a number of Windows Phone 8 example applications and their documentation are directly available via the Nokia Lumia Developer’s Library.
We hope you enjoy these updates!
