BuildNokia - Great resource

Hi shyoty

Did you develop this library? I'm sure this will be a great time-saver for people. Thank you for including it in the wiki.

I've gone through and edited for clarity. Feel free to revert anything I broke.

I have one more suggestion. I think this article would be easier for people to find if it were entitled something like "Creating a barcode reader with the Optical Reader Library for Windows Phone 8" What do you think? If you agree, could you change it?

Hamishwillee - Subedited/Reviewed

Hi Shyoty

Nice article - Jarkko provided us with the background.

I've subedited this slightly for wiki style. The main changes are to simplify the abstract and the introduction - moving the "downloads" information into its own section, providing more rationale for the library, and hopefully making this more clear.

I removed one sentence which I found unclear "The camera parameterization and image quality optimizations performed by the library can be used with your own camera UI." - replaced this with ", that is already optimized to use the best camera parameters for different devices," which I think captures what you meant.

I also moved the image of the demo app to the top - most apps are improved with a relevant image at the end of the introduction. I would be very happy if this instead/also had an architectural diagram - basically a stack showing ZXing as a replaceable engine at the bottom of a short "stack". Up to you.

Please confirm you are OK with the changes.

Thanks for this. I am impressed.
