Displaying PDF files in WindowsStoreApp

Displaying PDF files in a mobile apps is a valid use case and there are many iOS and Android app that do it. WinRT has no APIs for displaying PDF files. The only thing you can do with a PDF in WinRT is to display it in the default PDF viewer app using the Windows.System.Launcher.LaunchFileAsync method. This is typicaly not what you want to do. This method takes the user out of your app and more importantly the PDF can be copied, shared, etc. There are a few 3rd party components for displaying PDF files in Windows Store apps, each has some problems and restrictions.

How I Built the Paint 4 Kids Windows Store App Using Only HTML5 and SVG

Paint 4 Kids is a Windows Store app specifically designed for kids. It's a simple app for coloring and drawing. You can read about its features directly on the Windows Store site, where you can also see some screen shots. For this article, you can simply think of an app that has several drawings that you can interact with. From a technical perspective, Paint 4 Kids is built entirely using standard Web technologies, like HTML, CSS, JavaScript and SVG. Consider an important aspect here: with Windows 8, we write an app using our Web skills and we develop for the Web platform using the underlying HTML5 support of the Internet Explorer 10 rendering engine. So, one immediate benefit is that we do not have to test and support all the different browser versions or use any polyfills to emulate the new API features in old browsers. We can use the best of the Web platform and also some specific Windows 8 APIs directly in JavaScript.

Setting view states in HTML windows store apps using Blend

From developing XAML applications I got used to working with the visual state manager to set various states of my applications and controls. In Windows Store apps that are build using XAML use the visual state manager to change various properties when the view state of the app changes. The app can be ran in fullscreen, filled or snapped state. When building Windows Store apps using HTML and JavaScript I wanted to show some UI different when the view state changes.

Create Windows Store Apps with HTML5 and JavaScript

Not only has Bill Gates' dream of a computer on every desk and in every home come to fruition, but the advent of devices such as the Surface tablet has taken his dream even further. In addition to the Surface, there has been an explosion of new consumer-­oriented devices in every form factor possible. In other words, computers are everywhere.

Consider that on those computers are more than 1 billion existing Windows installations worldwide, with 300 million Windows 7 licenses sold each year in the previous two years. Combine the current, upgradable Windows installation base with the rapidly growing market of Windows 8 devices such as the Surface and you have the formula for monetization success.
