Hello Everyone,

While this may seem very obvious, I am unable to implement the proximity APIs for Windows Phone. I have searched the whole internet, from MSDN Sample Codes to github repos, but nowhere a simple approach to sharing data has been prescribed. Either there are samples to show how to exchange messages(string types) or there are types using peer-to-peer, data saving in NFC tags etc., I tried to follow the Nokia Lumia App Lab for the same, but didn't manage to follow it. I just want a simple and straightforward approach to send a picture/video/song from one WP8 device to anothr i.e, on clicking/tapping icon in the Application Bar, the device becomes ready to share the code.

It would be very nice if you share the code for the same. At least summarise the steps involved. Any help is deeply appreciated.


Regards.
Abhishek
