Windows Phone 8 Unleashed

We previously touched on Microsoft MVP for Client Application Development, Daniel Vaughan's latest Windows Phone book back in February, but now the title is available to purchase on Amazon. Windows Phone 8 Unleashed is a developer resource for those who are interested in developing apps and games for the Windows Phone platform.

Vaughan teaches through complete sample apps that illuminate each key concept with fully-explained code and real-world context. It's presented with best practices in mind for creating highly functional and attractive Windows Phone apps. Drawing on access to the Windows Phone development team, he also goes into some detail that other resources may lack.

Here are a few Windows Phone 8 enhancement examples, which are included in the book:

  • Voice Commands
  • Wallet integration
  • New Live Tile Capabilities
  • Nokia Maps Control
  • File and Protocol Associations

Priced at $35, be sure to head on over to Amazon and pick up a copy if interested.
