Easy Diary for Windows Phone 7

I have always wanted to get into the mobile space.  Particularly with developing apps.  So when the Windows Phone 7 was announced, as a newbie Silverlight developer (a year ago), I thought this would be a great chance to do so.  And so, I dove in.

The Win Phone 7, a Silverlight & XNA developer platform makes it fairly easy for current Silverlight/XNA developers to transition into the mobile space.  And I have to say, it’s been very exciting.

Easy Diary, a diary/journal application, was my first (of many apps to come) for the Windows Phone 7.  It gives potential users a quick and easy way to record moments throughout their day.  They can also connect with popular social sites like Twitter & Facebook, and display their online activity as part of their diary.  The app took about two weeks of total work, and was released to the Windows Marketplace a few months ago prior to the release of the phone. 

I will soon be posting more info on my current and future apps on my site here.  In the meantime, you can click here to view my app in the marketplace (Zune software required).  There was also a small article posted about my app here.

While I would like to say I figured everything out on my own while developing my app, that just won’t be right.  So I have to give credit where credit is due.  See below for credit(s), resources, and screenshots of the app.

Laurent Bugnion created a very light, flexible and versatile MVVM framework for the Windows Phone 7 (dubbed MVVM Light), Silverlight, and WPF.  It made my life very easy while developing this app and it will come in very handy in the many apps to come.

Resources

There are many valuable resources pertaining to developing apps for the Windows Phone.  Ranging from beginner to expert levels.  Here are just a few of them:

Screenshots

There are currently over 3,000 apps in the windows marketplace, and it’s going to be very exciting to see many talented developers come up brilliant ideas and even more great apps in times to come.

Good move Microsoft…good move.

    Merry Christmas . . .
    I was wondering if I could ask a couple questions about your eDiary application? While it looks like something id be interested in, I’d like a diary that will evolve over time, and/or on which I can easily sync to a cloud or desktop, or download the content so it is never lost.
    I understand your eDiary can email pages, so may I ask you to elaborate on that function and respond perhaps reply to my thoughts above?
    Thank you,
    Tom

      Merry Christmas to you too Tom. Just to be sure, are you looking at the eDiary app or the Easy Diary app? I wrote the Easy Diary app, not the eDiary app.

      To answer some of your questions pertaining to Easy Diary, you currently cannot email your pages, or save your diary in the cloud, however, I already have several updates in the works which include saving your Diary to some of the popular cloud services, a new look and feel for easy workflow, ability to add pictures, tags, and location, and more social activity options that can be imported into your diary.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions. I will be happy to answer them. Thanks again.
