Blogging everyday is getting exhausting. But seriously folks (and don't forget to tip your wait staff)... Here in day three of Architecting Windows Phone 7 applications, I want to talk about locating the view-model. If you've missed the past parts of the series, you you can visit them here:
In this second part of my Architecting Windows Phone 7 applications, I want to tackle the use of the Pivot and Panorama control. If you missed the first part of the series, you you can visit it here:
UPDATE: James Ashley correct mentioned that there is no forward navigation in Windows Phone 7. So I updated the example.
With the big announcement of dates, phones and carriers today, there is a log of buzz around the new phones. I intend on picking one up on T-Mobile when their launch happens mid-November. It looks like the number of applications at launch should be around 2,000. I expect this to increase pretty fast. But that means a lot of you out there will be starting to write your own applications.
I recently finished my Blood Sugar monitoring app ("Stay Glucose to Me") for the Windows Phone 7. I battled with the idea of which of the Metro styles to use for my application. Since the new Windows Phone 7 tools shipped with a Panorama control, I started there. What I find most interesting about the iterations of design I went through was how a real app can use (and probably should) use a couple of different metaphors. I could easily see a Pivot or Panorama for a home page then individual pages (that might still have individual simple pages).
My Windows Phone 7 Workshop at DevConnections is coming up on November 1st (http://www.devconnections.com) in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas strip! If you are looking for a way to quickly get up to speed on building Silverlight applications using Silverlight for the Windows Phone, its time to sign up!
Now that the Windows Phone 7 Tools are fully released, I sit here waiting for the phones to be released. In the time between the tool release and the phones being released, I have some precious time to get my applications ready for release as well. While I am not building any mass-market applications (nope, no fart apps here); I am building a number of small applications that should show off some features of the phone.
