Introducing: PhoneCompare for Windows Phone 7

I’ve built a new Windows Phone App that lets you compare 2 Windows Phone devices with all available specs right next to each other to see which is the best. You can also just check the specifications of one of the available windows phones at this moment when you are in a heated argument with friends or colleagues again where you are not sure if that phone had a 1.4GHZ processor or a 1.5 GHZ processor.

My new app is called PhoneCompare and is available in all Windows Phone Marketplaces for 99 cents. you can also install a free trial that has 100% of the functionality but shows ads.

PhoneCompare has the following features:

  • List all available Windows Phones
  • Check specifications for a single phone to see its screen size, dimensions, weight, processor, storage, memory, battery and camera.
  • Select 2 phones to compare all these specs next to each other
  • Check the specs of your current phone
  • Browse phones by brand
  • View a list of new phones that are just released or are about to get released

My plans for the future are to also make it possible to rate phones so you can see which phones are rated the highest and I also want to store most used phones by visitors of the app. All this in version 1.1 :)

  

  

 

If you have any feedback on this app please let me know by a comment on this post, by sending me a tweet @geertvdc or by rating or using the in app mail function

Enjoy!

Windows Phone developer introduction sessions at UTwente & TU/E

Last week I visited Twente University and today I went to the University of Eindhoven to do a session on building your first Windows Phone App. This post is mainly created for visitors of those sessions so they can download the slide deck and sample code we’ve created during the session.

My sample code and powerpoint deck including lots of resources to start developing for windows phone can be found here:

During the session we created a twitter app that downloads the data from an xml feed asynchronous and placing this list of twitter items in a listbox. After that we created some sample data and created a template for the listbox so the twitter list looks nice.

Hopefully these sessions made you join the Windows Phone community and I expect to see your apps in the marketplace soon :)

If you have any questions regarding Windows Phone development please send me an email or contact me on twitter @geertvdc

Happy Coding!
