Jerry Huang apps and developing apps

Are you ready to Mango? Let me know please...

Recently I received a couple of great ideas from users (thanks, really!):

  • Live Tile support
    haven't made up the details, but one thing for sure is that the snapshot could be pin as icon or background
  • Pin the camera you created on IP CAM Controller to start screen
    this is really cool! Extremely fast to access to your camera, it's really one tap does the job. Moreover, you could use the camera snapshot as the back tile backgroup. (In Mango, each Tile has front one and back one, they are dynamically switched by the phone automatically)

However, as some of you may or maynot know, the current app is developed on earlier SDK (what we called 7.0 version) so that it's compatible with Mango and non-Mango (such as NoDo) devices. The above two features cannot be supported until the project is upgraded to SDK 7.1 (Mango SDK).

Once the project has been upgraded, the app is still available for non-Mango users, but they will not receive any update nofitication from marketplace, in other word, their IP CAM Controller will stick with existing version (v1.13) and not able to upgrade to any newer version until their phones are being upgraded.

I don't know how many people are still using earier version of Windows Phone, so I made a poll here, to collect your opinions and what phone you are using.

The number one IP CAM app in "Music & Video" category on WP7 Marketplace

Finally, IP CAM Conotroller becomes the no. 1 IP Camera software in the Music & Video category, or ranking at top 18 in the category (US market) today. In the meanwhile, v1.13 has just been released.

I want to say thank you to all users (most likely they are parents like mecheeky). I'm so much appreciated for all your support in the past few months. As a result, I removed the time limitation on free trial from v1.13 version. Instead of having 3 minute limit on viewing for free trial users, there will be an ad bar showing up. The ad will be completely removed plus capacity of accessing multi view afte purchase. I hope this is acceptable for you.

The v1.13 starts to support multiple languages: Simplified and Traditional Chinese, German and Spanish (beta). Swedish will be coming in the next release, and maybe French:) If your language hasn't been listed, and you are happy to become an volunteer, please do contact me!
