EF smartphone app for WP
« on: 08.09.2015, 16:49:29 »

Hi,

last year at the EF the smart phone app was a really good help to me. But this year I couldn't use it because I got a new phone with Windows on it... is there any plan on a WP version of the app?

If not, I could start a try on it. I'm a professional C#/.NET software developer, but with no experience on WP... yet. But it would be a good start for me and the chance to give something  to the community (at least those using windows phone ;-)

I would need some help from the original developer though. Mainly the format of the data and how to obtain it.

I instantly like you. ;)

On a more serious note, you might want to talk to TraxSwe, he's the original app's developer.

We expect to have a new and shiny set of apps for all 3 platforms (Android, iOS & Windows Phone) ready for this years EF. :)

The current plan is to have the applications on the respective stores/marketplaces a few weeks prior to the actual convention date to collect feedback and possible issues early enough - that'd most likely be announced here on the forums. If you're interested in testing out the Windows Phone app in an earlier development stage, let me know!

Thanks for the offer. Luchs will get in touch with you once we have something ready to show.

We currently do not plan on adding different language support, since most of the content - like the event descriptions, the artists self-descriptions - are given to us just in English, from external sources. The few bits of actual UI texts would probably not warrant separate translations.

If it's a Windows Phone, it'll work. If it crashes, we'll be able to see the hardware specs in the crash report, and if something doesn't "look right" - we can always discuss.

The only thing I'd need to know is if you, by chance, have an unlocked Windows Phone (which implies that you're either a WP app developer, or that your phone has been unlocked by one before). Unless you're a developer yourself, the answer is most likely "no" (which is totally fine - it simply means that you won't be able to test before we're publishing builds on the Windows marketplace).

It's about installing apps that are not on the marketplace. To do this, a windows phone needs to be unlocked, and for this to happen, you need an active, paid developer account, which then is linked to this phone. You'd know 100% if you've gone through those steps, so if you're not entirely sure what the whole unlocking process looks like, you probably have a normal Windows 10 mobile phone that will happily run any apps in the Windows Marketplace, but will not be able to accept apps being installed directly on the phone while bypassing the marketplace.

Again, that's no problem, it was simply an unlikely corner case I wanted to ask about. Sorry if the question was unclear on my behalf.
