Kiran10182 - Supported Windows Phone OS versions!

Hi Mehul,

Thanks for the article.

I see that the title is bound with Windows Phone 8 platform. I checked the link: and found out the following information from there:

Version Information Windows Phone OS Supported in: 8.0, 7.1

Since it says that it also supports 7.1 version. Is that applicable with this article?

Hamishwillee - Renamed/Review

Hi Kiran & Mehul

Thanks for this document. I have renamed to make generic WP (and fix spelling of decrypting) because as Kiran says, this will run on any version.

From a general article point of view it would be great if this included a downloadable example that people could try it with. I'd also love some explanation of when you might want to use this library (ie some use cases). You might also compare with the approach in How to encrypt your application data in Windows Phone.

From a competition point of view this isn't a particularly compelling because it doesn't show of a WP8-specific feature. Nor is is comprehensive or innovative. You might make it more impressive by being comprehensive - ie having a documentation covering everything about encryption/decryption on the platform (of course that would be a huge job since there are lots of APIs), or by making it innovative - a use case that interestingly uses WP8 features along with encryption
