A sample project was created to see how well it works and how good it is on different foot print devices such as Windows and Windows Phone. The project was deployed to Windos Phone emulators on Windows 8.1 Professional computer using Visual Studio 2013 Express for Windows with Update 2 RC.
Windows App Studio is still a beta and of course every one is excited about it (I mean the ones who develop phone apps). Being a beta product it still has limitations and of course the beginner users like myself have limitations of their one. Certain of the features like fone-size cannot be changed and the layout or styling is restricted.
The changes that one makes to HTML is also limited.
With the above restrictions it is nonetheless useful to see how far one can go. One of the features that did cause some concern was the bleeding of one section into another. Here are some screen shots of how they look. In a well developed application such bleeding will not or should not happen.
Here is a screenshot of the App as seen on the Windows App Studio application page:
In the above you can see part of the second section bleeding into the first section. In fact it happens for all the sections (all six of them).
Here is what you see on the three of the emulators used for displaying the APP.
Emulator 8.1 WVGA 4 inch 512MB
One of the obvious things you see is that not only there is bleeding but also the uneven replication of the text sizes. On the site it looks OK, but on the emulator the text in the 'Weather' section is too small compared to what it should have been in some of the emulators. I am sure these will be ironed out in the finished product. I have not yet deployed it to my device, which is a Nokia Lumia Icon and I am excited to find out how it would look.
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
