    Handling file/folder pickers and the web authentication broker in universal Windows apps

    • 0 Comments
    Hi, this is Jeffrey Richter. I was very excited when Microsoft announced universal apps for Windows Store and Windows Phone apps. One reason is that I can now use my existing C#/CLR/WinRT skill set to build phone apps. Another reason is because it means my Windows Runtime via C# book now has a new audience.

You can download this code from the book’s catalog page in the new Microsoft Press Store (via the Downloads tab). Of course, the main reason to use universal apps...
