Visual Basic 2005/2008/2010

A new app for Windows Phone 8 built with VB: Where are my Items?

It's been a long time since my last post in this blog. As you might know, I run an Italian community about Visual Basic so writing in two different languages concurrently can be hard, especially when you also author books about programming, such as Visual Basic 2012 Unleashed

About Visual Basic, I use it everyday not only for building business apps and for authoring learning materials, I also use it for building apps for Windows Phone.

I have recently published a new app, called Where are my Items? (download here). The goal of the app is saving the location of your objects, so that you will never forget where they are; you can also add a picture and backup data on your SkyDrive.

So, why am I telling you this? Because it's the first time I implement localization in multiple languages and that I use in-app purchases APIs. Of course, I did test in-app purchase so it works Since it has been the first time I used some features, I'd like to ask your feedback. If you have some free minutes, please download the app and give me some feedback. I appreciate it.

Secondly, I'd like to give a mention to Telerik and its great RadControls suite for Windows Phone. I've used Telerik controls for animated tiles and zoom-image in the app and it was fun.

Final note: there is an update of the app that is waiting to pass certification. This update will fix some issues with the light theme of the phone and, most importantly, will be more consistent with the English language, so the title is going to be replaced with Where are my Things?

Thanks for your feedback!
