"With its attention to detail and its extensive content, it's hard to resist the conclusion that it's likely to remain the Windows Phone app developers bible for quite some time to come." -- Ron H. Ikeda, Denver Visual Studio User Group Member Source:

5.0 von 5 Sternen Everything about this book rocks!!! 2. August 2013
Von T. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Just like the Windows Phone 7.5 Unleashed book, everything about this book rocks!!! It is in color which makes for a great read. Being able to see the code and screenshots in color doubles the value of a book like this. I wish all programming books that included coding client UIs were in color.

Although the chapter names usually highlight the main topic covered in the chapter, some chapters like chapter 2 cover a ton of topics. It covers XAP files, the capabilities model, threading model for graphics and animation, the frame rate counter, performance tools, how to determine device status, MVVM, commands, and a platform-agnostic dialog service.

This book is 1123 pages huge and includes 34 in-depth chapters. It is broken into five parts. I have listed each part and the chapters below.

Part I: Windows Phone App Development Fundamentals
Chapter 1. Introduction to Windows Phone App Development
Chapter 2. Fundamental Concepts in Windows Phone Development
Chapter 3. Understanding the Application Execution Model
Chapter 4. Controlling Page Orientation

Part II: Essential Elements
Chapter 5. Using Content Controls, Items Controls, and Range Controls
Chapter 6. Mastering Text Elements and Fonts
Chapter 7. Employing Media and Web Elements
Chapter 8. Taming the Application Bar
Chapter 9. Enriching the User Experience with the Windows Phone Toolkit Controls
Chapter 10. Creating Jump Lists with the Long List Selector
Chapter 11. Creating Expansive and Engaging Apps with the Pivot and Panorama

Part III: Windows Phone App Development
Chapter 12. Processing Touch Input
Chapter 13. Portraying Your App with Live Tiles
Chapter 14. Leveraging Built-In Apps via Launchers and Choosers
Chapter 15. Receiving Messages from the Cloud Using Push Notification
Chapter 16. Sensing Motion and Attitude
Chapter 17. Building Location Aware Apps
Chapter 18. Incorporating Map-Based Positioning
Chapter 19. Supporting Multiple Cultures and Languages
Chapter 20. Extending the Windows Phone Picture Viewer
Chapter 21. Capturing Images and Video with the Camera
Chapter 22. Recording Audio with the Microphone
Chapter 23. Creating Speech Driven Experiences
Chapter 24. Unit Testing Apps
Chapter 25. Manage Payment Instruments Using Wallet Extensibility

Part IV: Building Data Driven Apps
Chapter 26. Validating User Input
Chapter 27. Communicating with Network Services
Chapter 28. Preserving App State and Settings
Chapter 29. Storing App Data in a Local Database
Chapter 30. Auto-Launching with File and Protocol Associations
Chapter 31. Extending the Search Experience

Part V: Multitasking
Chapter 32. Conducting Background Activities with Scheduled Actions
Chapter 33. Performing Background File Transfers
Chapter 34. Coordinating Background Audio Playback

One of the things I really like that the author did was introduce the Windows Phone Performance Analysis Tool right off the bat in chapter 2. Knowing how to make use of the performance tools may really help developers without an actual device.

Another thing I really liked was that the author made use of MVVM throughout the book. He did not just introduce it and then continue with the rest of the book without it, like I have seen done with some other XAML books, he made extensive use of it.

The author does a great job covering the Windows Phone Toolkit. He covers the ListPicker, AutoCompleteBox, ContextMenu, DatePicker and TimePicker, LoopingSelector, Page Transistions, TiltEffect, ToggleSwitch, WrapPanel, GestureService, and GestureListener. He does not just list them, he provides in-depth examples of each.

The chapter on Building Location Aware Apps is not only a great introduction to Bing Maps, it also contains a practical example of using Reactive Extensions (Rx). The chapter on Geographic Location also contains a nice example of Rx.

The chapter named Processing Touch Input is all about gestures. It gives a great overview with some really good visual aids. It covers all the gestures and their associated events.

The chapter on Launchers and Choosers is awesome. The author does a great job of covering a ton of them. He covered so many of them, that I am not sure that he missed any. He provides a nice code sample for using each one.

The downloadable code is very well organized and usable. I did not run into any trouble with the samples, which is amazing because there are a ton of them.

Every chapter of this book is rock solid and they all go in-depth. The last thing I will say I liked about this book is that it took advantage of tools like LINQ to SQL, Odata, the Unit Testing Framework, and Reactive Extensions in practical real world examples. The author doesn't skimp on implementation examples.

All in all if you are considering getting into Windows Phone 8 development, or are already involved with it, this book is an absolute must!!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very Advanced 22. Januar 2014
Von Stanford M. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is written by an amazing software engineer. The knowledge is awesome! Where some other books may tell you to do this or that, this one explains how things work such as geopositioning. He warns that this is for experts having a strong foundation in C# and XAML. I don't. I am learning object oriented programming, C#, geopositioning, MVVM, and Windows Phone 8 all at once. It is tough but it is working. I have struggled getting the downloaded code configured as I want and see little instruction for that.

This will be a valuable reference and likely to be the first and last place I look as I develop new Windows Phone Apps.

Solid book, covers a lot of useful material. If you're a more experienced developer you'll get more out of it.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Windows Phone 8 Unleashed 4. März 2014
Von Jose Vera Campello - Veröffentlicht auf

This book reminds me of the same issue almost every other book on the topic suffers from: this is not a book that you read from beginning to end. This is a reference book for people that eventually forget how to achieve certain behavior that is going to be implemented into an App.

This said, this book is not for beginners. And that is the point: if you are no beginner at all, but a seasoned coder instead, you most likely do not need this book. All you cannot do, or cannot recall, you can find online in forums or by simply googling it.

On the other hand, if you are like me and have some experience but still miss the "C# 202 stuff", this books renders useless since you are not likely to find in it what you are looking for.

If you are experienced and want to own a reference book on ALL things you can achieve when programming for Windows Phone, this book is for you, as well as many other books.

The autor is a programmer writing for seasoned programmers who can easily grasp that bit of knowledge (that snippet of code) they are missing. They will say: Ok, that is what I was looking for, now I am to implement it on my App. That would be easy for them, and the book would be actually useful.

My question here is: How many people looking for a book on WP8 belong to that group? Again, if you are in that group, you have your own resources of information, probably much better and to the point that this reference book provides to you.

Other than that, the book is very informative, it is really well written, and the only con I can find it that you will need to install a pack that is widely used in the book's examples and will work for you only if you are running VS 2012, not 2013 which was my case. It would be nice if it was advised BEFORE you get the book.

To summarize, if you are a seasoned programmer and you like to have a reference book to help you when you struggle, this book is a good choice.

In any other case, I would think about it a little more. There are other options as well. In my case and for my App, I found MSDN forums to be of help more times tan this book.

Great if new to Windows Phone programming. Might be too basic for those with experience. Presentation is very good, color pictures are great.
