Testing in-app puchasing in Windows 8

One of the many new features with upcoming Windows 8 is the Windows Store distribution and monetization channel. Developers can now add in-app purchasing to their apps. The prizes are the same as application prizes in store, e.g. starting from 1,49 USD (1,19 EUR) and gradually growing up in 50 cent increments. Because it seems testing in-app purchasing system isn't trivial to everybody, here's a quick sample to get you started. This is only a basic example to get you started, so I don't cover different in-app types. You can learn about those at this MSDN article.

Designing your Windows 8 app to be the best in its category

When starting to design a Windows 8 app, the most important thing to do is pick out a best-at statement. To create one, answer the question: "This app is the best app in its category at what?" Take the time to come up with a great best-at statement because many of your decisions, from what features you build to how you lay out the content in your app will be based on it.

Windows 8 Notifications: Push Notifications

Push notifications are one of the hallmarks of a personalized application experience. The primary difference from the other notification mechanisms discussed so far is that the application itself does not set the delivery schedule. In the push notification scenario, a Windows 8 application is merely a subscriber to a hosted service that is responsible for triggering the notification and sending it to interested parties.

File Manipulation in Windows 8 Store Apps

As we know now, Windows 8 Store Apps are a new category of desktop apps that are touch-centric and run on the new WinRT runtime on Windows 8. In this article, we see how we can manage (Create and Update) binary data in Files using the Windows 8 runtime. File Management in WinRT WinRT's IO Subsystem has been written ground up to be completely async. As a result the System.IO has been superseded by Windows.Storage. Some namespaces from System.IO are still available and we have a set of new async helpers for the existing IO calls.

Simultan development for Windows 8 and Windows Phone

I am an enthusiast of the Microsoft ecosystem. I was starting with coding one and a half year ago by learning Windows Phone development in self study. With the incredible fast Windows 8 OS, I decided of course to go into Windows 8 development as well. Due to a growing readership of my blog and the fact that I wanted to recode my app on Windows Phone for my personal blog as well, I started the simultan development of the app both on Windows 8 and Windows Phone. With this app users will be able to read articles from my blog on msicc.net and share them with their social networks. Of course I will fully implement the commenting system from my blog so users can read and post comments on articles/posts. It will contain also more social interacting features from within the app as well as the possibility to save articles for reading them later.

Storage in a Windows 8 App

Apps generate data. Some of them generate a ton of data and others just a few little bits and pieces. Allow me to enumerate your options for storing stuff when you're working on an app for Windows 8. There are subtle differences between the way storage is done in an HTML/JS app versus a .NET or a C++, but for most of the techniques you're just accessing the WinRT library so the steps are practically identical. Before we enumerate the types of storage, let's talk about the types of data that typically get generated in an app. I'll break them up into application state, user settings, application data, and user data.

Enhancing the Win8 Slider experience

In a touch oriented application, we often allow -or force- the user to set the value for an integer or an enumeration through a slider control. In most cases this is more comfortable and less error prone than working with the soft keyboard. Unfortunately it's not always ideal: if the range of values becomes too huge, or the slider becomes too narrow (e.g. when in portrait or snapped mode), then it becomes too difficult for the user to position the slider at the correct value. In this scenario, a textbox is a much more appropriate input control. This article proposes a UX design –and implementation- that offers the best of both worlds, and lets the end user decide on it.

Telerik Loves Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 RTMs!

Yesterday's release of Visual Studio 2012 and Blend for Visual Studio 2012 marks the beginning of a new era. In some ways, VS2012 and Blend are incremental releases, adding even better support for building enterprise and consumer apps and services for the desktop and the web. However, in one very important way, the release of VS2012 and Blend, together with the release of Windows 8 earlier this month, signals a whole new focus for the platform - that of touch-centric tablets - and with it, a whole new way to package and distribute apps for the Windows operating system - the Windows Store.

Hardware accelerating everything: Windows 8 graphics

In computer graphics, high performance is a guiding principle. In the early days of personal computing, discrete, add-on graphics cards were mostly focused on specialized applications such as CAD/CAM and gaming. Even early on, there was a view that all of this graphics horsepower could be used for more: notably a better user interface and experience. One of the first graphics cards for a PC was called a "Windows Accelerator" from S3 Graphics, which focused on the user experience by moving windows around the screen faster. As graphics hardware evolved, so, too, did the methods that developers use to interact with that hardware.

Exploring Win8 Metro: The RichEditBox & FilePickers

Win8 provides a number of controls in the XAML toolkit that are easy to use RichEdit-File Pickerand that provide a great deal of flexibility and power. I'll be writing about some of these controls now and then, starting with some simple and easy to use controls that do a lot of work for you.

The RichEdit box allows the user to open and view and edit a Rich Text document. Rich Text refers to all the text attributes you associate with a word processor but not with a text editor (e.g., bold, color, etc.). The RichEditBox control handles all the work of understanding and presenting the rich text.
