Stay tuned for the KendoUI, SiteFinity and TeamPulse videos to be released or better yet attend the webinars live on 2/22/2012.

What did we cover today?

Some of the new controls/helpers covered in the Q1 2012 Windows Phone 7 presentation are:

  • LiveTileHelper
  • RadSlideView
  • RadToolTip
  • RadRating
  • RadPaginationControl

We then introduced “Building Blocks of Metro Applications” which includes:

Trial Feature Reminder - The TrialFeatureReminder allows you to display reminder messages for the trial versions of your applications. You can track the usage of the different features and disable only some of them when the trial expires. Then you can display a nice message inviting your user to pay for the features in the marketplace.

Trial App Reminders - Very Similar to Feature Reminders in that the TrialApplicationReminder allows you to display reminder messages for the trial versions of your applications.   When the trial is expired you can display a nice message inviting your user to buy the application from the marketplace.

Rate Reminders - With this component you can add a very important feature for reminding your users to rate your application thus increasing your marketplace presence.

Error Diagnostics - With this component you can receive crash reports, add specific debug information and get run-time information from your users when an issue in your application is encountered.
