rate it… rate apps with windows phone

This link was really hard to find…
Allows an application to launch the Windows Phone Marketplace client application and display the review page for the specified product.

Note, when I was running the emulator, I then got error: 805a0194. I am hoping that is because I am running this on the emulator…

Example code used:
MarketplaceReviewTask reviewTask = new MarketplaceReviewTask();
reviewTask.Show();

admobs on windows phone

admobs has a beta available for windows phone. I thought to use it, but problem is that you already need to have your app published, so I guess I will fragment my earnings across google and microsoft.

For those interested, here are the fields you need to fill in:

App name, Marketplace Deep Link, Category, App description.

windows phone browsers and samples

In OS 7.5 (or version 7.1 – very confusing), they have fixed the browser behaving badly scenario whereby bing translate had been breaking out of frames and picking up a screen that was smaller than expected

 

Along the way, I made a few discoveries:

http://www.myhttp.info/ = prints out your user agent.

Some common flavours:

  • desktop = Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; managedpc)
  • windows phone 7.5 = Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows Phone OS 7.5; Trident/5.0; IEMobile/9.0; Nokia; Lumia 800)

For an explanation on user agent strings.

For small memory windows phones, eg: Nokia’s new under-256Mb phone, you are being encouraged to launch existing applications through tasks. Check out this link for How to: Use the Web Browser Task for Windows Phone. This opens a new web browser outside of your app, back button goes back into your application.

I used webBrowser1.Navigate(new Uri(url1+extraOnEnd, UriKind.Absolute), null, “User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; MSIE 9.0; WIndows NT 9.0; en-US))”); to rewrite headers – which worked ok.

Some other code samples available on:

FinnGo Help

I developed this on a day when it was -30C… and the first weekend I had my Lumia…

HELP

Hit a button, select some text, hold it down, then wait for the translation bubble to appear. Sometimes it appears very small, so you might need to enlarge the text. Right now the back button will exit the application.

MICROSOFT TRANSLATE

Generally I find this is not as good as google translate, as I think google gets used more. I did try to use this originally. However there are a lot of blue bars that appear on the screen, so I switched back to Google translate.

GOOGLE TRANSLATE

This is not as good as it was on my Android device: the text is a lot smaller and background is not opaque, so it is quite hard to read.

LAST WORDS

Hopefully you’ll have fun. Otherwise use my html version.

I will be adding ads into this as soon as I get time to do that.
