I have an app that I wrote, and made it into the store for launch day. The app is Memorylage, and is a photo viewing app that lets you browse your photo collection as a dynamically generated, metro-styled, collage. You can then select your favorite photos to create custom collages, or use the Photo Booth mode to take new pictures to use.

I have been working on it since December, with the Developer Preview of Windows 8, and it is currently over 7,000 downloads.

It is free, so go download it from the store, or check out a demo at www.memorylage.com

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

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.

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.

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. :)

If you want to be kept up to date on future updates, feel free to follow me on Twitter at @Memorylage. I promise I don't spam.

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.
