Hamishwillee - Review/Subedit

Hi Rudy

I have subedited for English/wiki style, and added links in SeeAlso to related articles.

Nice article. Certainly useful and covering new material. There is a lot of overlap with Maintaining a WP7 and WP8 version of a same Silverlight application and Adding Windows Phone 8 features to your Windows Phone 7 application. I think this would have been a nice "real world" addition to Adding Windows Phone 8 features to your Windows Phone 7 application.

Anyway, you wrote:

Disadvantages:
Your application will not take advantage of new controls like the native panorama or native pivot
Your application will be displayed with a black band on 720p screen phones
You will not be able to use the new Windows Phone 8 features such as in-app purchase, WinPRT, etc.

It sounds like these are disadvantages of "using tiles" and that using this approach will prevent you using in-app purchase etc. But what you're really saying is that you cant use this approach for accessing other WP8 features - which is a completely different thing, and I think worth spelling out.

Regards

Hamish
