Windows Phone app based on website

Hey, I want to make windows phone app and don't know where to start. Actually, I don't need help with how to make wp app, but how to get data from website. My app should look something similar to the Microsoft Facebook app (except that it will not be Facebook).
Let me try to explain it a bit. In facebook app you click a button (for example "news") and magic happens - content from facebook appears. My question is, how? What do I have to do to "communicate" with website, to get content or even trigger
website functions. So far I've been only able to work with websites that I have access to database. I assume "magic" is going on using GET and POST functions, but I don't think that are the only two functions to do awesome app such as Facebook
(developed by Microsoft)...

You would have to add a webservice on the web site you can call to get the data.  I would recommend using the web api for this.
If your website has an rss feed you can use that to get data from the website also

  • Application Insights is not recording any data from the released version of my Windows Phone app

    I released my first Windows Phone app a week ago, and Application Insights worked perfectly to collect usage data whilst in a debug build. However, the released version of the app is not returning any data at all. Is this a common problem for new apps or
    is there a problem that I need to address?
    I configured Application Insights for my app using the information on this guide -
    Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks for your help.

    Hi Bernard, thanks for your reply.
    I tested the data using a release package of the Windows Phone app deployed directly to my phone from Visual Studio and the data appeared after around 10 minutes. However, once I published the exact same package to the Windows Phone Store and started using
    the version downloaded from the store, no usage data has been uploaded even after several days of waiting.
    I am using SDK 0.7.1 and Application Insights Tools for Visual Studio v1.3.2. The app is built for WP 8.0 and running on WP 8.1.
    The instrumentation key is 757eeaff-605e-44a2-8eaa-6abf498bfcf5.
    Thanks for your time and help, I really appreciate it.

  • Lumia 620 & Windows Phone App Connection Problems

    I've been having problems with a Lumia 620 connecting to the Windows Phone App on my Windows 8 laptop. The App keeps reporting that the phone has a problem and is not playing nicely. I've eliminated the laptop as the issue as my Lumia 920 connects without a hitch. I'm guessing the issue is with the Lumia 620's software as it was recently updated in the past two months. Any solutions out there apart from resetting the phone?

    you could try to uninstall the windowsphone app from your laptop and reinstall it to see if maybe it wasn't connecting and loading the drivers correctly.

  • Why am I getting the message "Your app isn't identified as a universal app in the Store." when I have already associated my Windows Phone app to my Windows Store app?

    I associated two Windows Phone apps to their respective Windows Store apps yet one of them is giving me this message on the pricing tab...
    "Your app isn’t identified as a universal app in the Store. Publish a Windows app with the same name, and you’ll enable the universal app icon, with all the associated benefits. If you’ve already published a related Windows app, this icon may not 
    be appearing because of restrictions you’ve set on your app.
    Learn more about  these restrictions."
    I have checked under "Learn more" and I am meeting all the requirements for the icon to show.  Please help as I really think having this icon on the Phone store will help downloads and I want my users to know there is a Windows partner app.

    I downloaded the new OS X Yosemite.
    Not sure what you mean by new, since Yosemite was released about 9 months ago.
    When i  try to open it i get this message, The version of iPhoto installed on this Mac is not compatible with OS X Yosemite.
    iPhoto version 9.6.1 is the latest version of iPhoto that is compatible with Yosemite. If you're just now updating to Yosemite from an older version of OS X, then you may have missed your window of opportunity to upgrade iPhoto to the latest version.
    So i go to the Mac App Store i get this message, "The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store."
    With the release of the 3rd Yosemite update,10.10.3, which includes Photos, iPhoto is no longer available for purchase.
    I would recommend that you use Photos.

  • Installing Windows Phone Apps to Windows 8.1

    Are Windows Phone applications supposed to installed on Windows 8.1 Pro?   The 8.1 Start menu includes the Store application, but most of the apps I need to install refuse to install and insist that they need a Windows Phone account.

    Each device processor has it's own architecture (a set of instructions that is supported by a processor), referred by a unique name. So, in the case of desktop, the architecture is x86 (or x86-64). In the case of phones, it's ARM (Advanced RISC Machines)
    architecture. Hence, the apps developed for Windows Phone will not be able to run in Windows desktop, and so you're seeing the error message.
    Hence, as britishdhez says, you can use the phone emulator. The emulator emulates the ARM architecture in the desktop PC, so Windows Phone apps will run on the emulator without any issues.

  • My Server 2012 R2 Windows Phone App now available!

    Hi, All,
    Greetings!  I am very pleased to announce that the My Server 2012 R2 Windows Phone App
    has been published to
    Windows Phone Store. This version is targeted to work with the new released Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials and the Windows Server Essentials Experience server role in Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard & Datacenter. To
    try out the new version, search ‘My Server 2012 R2’ from your windows phone and install it. Let team know if you have any feedback on this app.
    Windows Server Essentials Team

    Great option guys! Now I can REALLY centralize my media without reliance on third party products.
    For Phone App, it's great to have it but it seems to be lacking in UX. i.e. there is no option to start slideshow or even go from one photo to next in the list. It's very inconvenient to go from one photo to next by backing out to the list and clicking on
    next photo.
    Another feature I would love to have is integration on Photo/Video/Music hub. That way I don't have to explicitly launch app to access my music/photo/videos.
    Keep up good work and I hope to see much more functionality and tighter integration in future updates.

  • Pass values between Windows phone app and wpf

    i am creating a windows phone app where it is like a remote for desktop app which have timer start stop and break
    where start should activate the desktop applicaition timer like that.
    what are the possibility that i can control wpf(desktop) app with a windows phone app directly without any database sort of thing.
    thank you

    For help with the WPF side of this you'll be better off posting in the WPF forum.
    There isn't any remote control system built in, but you can use standard networking to implement your own. From the phone side take a look at the
    Connecting to networks and web services documentation. In particular, the
    Adding support for networking and
    Connecting with sockets sections are likely to get you on the right path.

  • Share Image,Link and Text to Social Networking App from My Windows Phone App

    I am developing windows phone 8.1 silverlight app where I want to share Images,Links and text to Social Networking App Like Facebook,Twitter,Whatsapp and Instragram.
    In Share content contains A Image of App Icon, A Link of App website and I invitation Text.
    There are Five buttons
    Share by Email
    Share by Facebook
    Share by Twitter
    Share by Whatsapp
    Share by Instragram
    Problems which I faced
    I can not attached image to Email. How it is Possible.?
    I can only open whatsapp from my App. But can not share to this
    I have used Share task but in list of app there is no whatsapp and instragram app ( I know there is no official app for instragram but it is Instragram Beta app)
    Please guide me how can I share my content to all above app

    Please see this sample application:
    You cannot control what appears in the share UI.  The Share UI Will show all applications that have registered to receive the type of content you are sharing.  So if a particular application is not appearing, then it is not registered as a Share
    target for that content type.
    I would run the sample on your phone for the various content types.  it should give you a good idea of which apps are registered for which content type.

  • How to open a web browser from an windows phone app

    Hi everyone,
    I am pretty new to Windows Phone 7, and now what I am trying to do is to create a simple app. When a user click to start this app, a browser will open and show the content of a webpage from a specific address.
    I tried to use a webbrowser object, but it seems like that doesn't sport cookies. So I need my app to open a real web browser (maybe IE mobile) to do the job.
    Thank you.

    copying from stackoverflow: "If you want to embed a browser window inside your application then use  the WebBrowser control.  Add an instance of the WebBrowser control to  your form then you can reference it in code using the name you
    give  it.  (Default name is "webBrowser1")"

  • Windows Phone 8.1 can't install "Windows Phone App Studio certificate"

    I try to install the certificates from provided on
    choose "Open" device go to "Add workplace account"  I choose "add" 
    nothing happen
    and can't install my app in next step
    thank you

    I'm having the exact same issue. I've made the whole app, and received the email from Microsoft. After receiving & reading the email, I (on my Dev Preview Windows Phone 8.1) tapped on the "click here" to install the certificate for my phone. Upon tapping,
    I was given the screen "open" or "save. I've tried both now. Neither of them work, though. It's simply the AET.aetx file. I click on "tap to open", and yes, it does open just fine. However, it simply takes me to "add workplace account?" I have also tried both
    "add" or "cancel". Both simply return you to the IE page. Nothing seems to be going on, but I thought that perhaps it may be downloading in the background. So, I simply waited for a bit, and then tried downloading my actual app (from the email). However, it
    tells me that I need an app to open the file (App.Studio.WindowsPhone_1.0.0.0_AnyCPU.appx). This is where I am stuck at as of now. I'm sure I'm missing an obvious step, but I'm really just not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • I recently purchased a Nokia Lumia 1020 and I am unable to instal the Windows phone App.

    I keep getting this error message when I try to install the Windows App: Windows phone can't be installed on Mac HD becasue Mac OS X Version 10.7 or later is required. Under the About this Mac section it says it is: MAC OS X 10.6.8 but there there are no updates available. Any assisitance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    10.6.8 is Snow Leopard. 10.7.x is Lion. You need to upgrade, at least, to Lion (or the current release, Mountain Lion) in order to use the software.
    You can purchase Lion (10.7.x) by calling Apple and getting a redemption code for the Mac App Store. If you want to upgrade to Mountain Lion, make sure that your MacBook Pro meets the minimum requirements -> and, if so, you can purchase and download it directly from the Mac App Store.
    Good luck,
