Right after the BUILD conference in October 2011 I started with my first app. The app was first build for the developer preview and rebuilt for the consumer preview. The app shows the news of the restaurant, the daily menu, the opening hours, an image gallery, you can make a reservation, rate the restaurant and plan an event.
It includes general features a Windows Store App should have. We use eg.
- semantic zoom
- the share contract
- search contract.
Furthermore we designed the app using the windows design guidelines and user experice.
The app is fast and fluid.
Enclosed you find our store package of the app.
You find the app here in the Windows Store.
AS A SPECIAL, HERE YOU FIND THE COMPLETE SOLUTION. Just post your email as a comment and I will send you the password.
Here you find some information about my app:
- the Ochsen Post App is among the Top Apps of it's category (food) having excellent ratings & reviews
- the Ochsen Post App helps other developers to learn about designing and developing windows 8 apps that deliver outstanding user experiences on touch devices such as the new ultrabook generation as we provide the app with full source code to other developers for training and use it in our own trainings.
- the Ochsen Post App shows how content can be delivered in an engaging way on ultrabook devices as it leverages core windows 8 // touch functionality e.g. semantic zoom and flip view image displays. It furthermore shows how content and forms can be layed out in a fluid and resolution independent manner optimized for touch input.
- the Ochsen Post App uses various WinRT APIs and integrates deply into the Windows 8 Experience as it uses Search Charm, Share Charm, Printing, Settings and Live Tiles.
