    I’ve been using various small XAML storyboard utilities and behaviors in my latest Window Phone and Windows Store apps. I’ve just packaged them all and released them into GitHub . Universal Helpers may not be that good of a name since the library is pretty small (yet) but I hope to enhance it in the future with more utilities and behaviors. So, let’s jump right in and see what’s under the hood! First of all, there are...

    Δημιουργώντας ελληνικές εφαρμογές στο Windows Phone

    Σήμερα μου ανέφερε ένας γνωστός ότι η ελληνική του εφαρμογή “κόπηκε” λόγω γλώσσας κατά τη διαδικασία του ελέγχου από την ομάδα του Windows Phone marketplace, παρότι είχε επιλέξει να γίνει publish μόνο στο ελληνικό marketplace, είχε βάλει ελληνική περιγραφή, ελληνικό user interface κ.λ.π. Τι συνέβη; Ο λόγος που κόπηκε είναι γιατί το default language της εφαρμογής του ήταν Αγγλικά. Για να το αλλάξετε αυτό, θα πρέπει...

    How to deal with payout setup on the Windows Phone Marketplace (Getting a Tax Identification Number (TIN) and Submitting the W-8 form)

    [Update: (that's what happens when you prepare the blog post for many days, things can change!) Microsoft has confirmed that ITINs are NO longer needed for publishers outside the US (link: http://forums.create.msdn.com/forums/t/92840.aspx ). It is unclear though if this also holds true for TINs in general (namely SSNs and EINs) since the “Certification Instructions” in the App Hub have yet to be updated. However,...
