Not to seem like a douche, but surely just using this website is better? http://www.police.uk...metypes/2012-09 and its free

I don't live in the UK, but actually the app presentation is better, and gives you more data for things you may need at the time, like the phone & e-mail address for the police.

What is "Anti-Social Behaviour"? Sounds like if I don't say good day to somebody the police will arrest me.

Is there a way you can make it look at SkyDrive for photos? The app looks beautiful in the screenshots but all my photos are on skydrive

The is probably the most requested feature, and will definitely be coming, but will be a decent amount of work to integrate it well into the app. I am planning on finishing up a bunch of simpler features I want to add, and then will start on that.

Fantastic! Thanks for the hard work, can't be easy doing this in your own time. I have so much respect for developers :)

Thanks! It definitely helps having a supportive wife when you spend so much time after work sitting at the computer at home working some more. :)

I guess I'll post my own application - Music Info http://apps.microsof...bd-90cc214cc09f

It's meant to be a music discovery application, with some pretty photos. But it plays your mp3/wav files too (and DRM free AAC & WMA if you pay too), and with better performance than Xbox Music. It wasn't initially intended to be a music player, so not everything is there yet (like playlists), but people seem to really like it.

How hard is it to add support for more audio formats? Just wondering really.

Just finished my latest app. It's quite popular and has been downloaded a few hundred times per day for the past month or so. It's called Wavematrix, and can be found here. It's inspired by Tonematrix, a Flash application somebody made. I just extended upon its functionality, and made it a bit more fun. It allows you to create sound or music in just a few minutes.

A screenshot can be found in the attachment.

My own app got approved last week and is up in the Store, it's called Activity Runner and serves as an extended To-Do app. You can download it here.

TuneUp IncrediLock

It provides widgets on the lock screen. As of now, only a sticky note can be placed. Note that you have to choose a lock screen picture first before you can use the widget.

This does not work with Chameleon so the rotating lock screen pictures will be disabled when this app is active.

Personally, I prefer to-dos because I rarely spend time on the lock screen.

Well, lets put it like this: there's a reason there's not a single application in the store that adds support for extra audio file formats at the moment :p

Microsoft should really chuck out a sample at some point...

If DOSBox could be ported onto WindowsRT, that would be amazing.

Aeon (also on Codeplex) seems like it would be easier to port, at least for me (C# is a lot more my forte than DOSBox's C++), and just glancing over it, it doesn't seem to suck.

Anybody else interested on working on this (or a real DOSBox port)? I'd be willing to give it a try :)

Here at that site I have a series called What's on my Start Screen.

I'm at my 5th Episode and these are all recommendations for decent and appealing Windows 8 Apps.

Has facebook touch been mentioned? If not, I like it much better than a browser. It's basically the Modern UI version of the HTML 5 app. No timeline support yet.

My wife loves that Facebook touch app Morgan. (Picked up a Surface over the weekend) I hope they add timeline soon, it would really flesh out the widescreen view (she prefers it vertical atm because of this) like it does in the People app.

JAM's TreeSize Touch is an interesting conversion of their great desktop sizing app.

Not bad... until I see it using 200 MB. Same pdf in Modern Reader - 36 MB. It is more responsive though, to be fair.

Interesting to see the Windows Store growth is actually accelerating. Over 30000 apps now, adding in at 600-700 apps per day, and accelerating. Very likely there will be 50,000 apps by the time Windows 8 is 3 months old. By the time Windows Blue comes along there will probably be more apps than Android tablets and perhaps even iPads.
