UWP AW WIDGET

I started working on the Ambient Weather widget.
It will be a good excuse to clean up the dashboard code.

I need to find a way to reduce the application size.

I’m sure Microsoft is just filling the package with a bunch of useless DLL.

…oh, and experimenting with new icons…

Microsoft (app) Store

It’s a shame that Microsoft put so little resources into their App store.
I thought Android and IOS were bad but Microsoft really is missing the mark.

I don’t get how they don’t realize that pushing and rewarding quality contents on their platform is what should matter most.
Plus it is so disrespectful toward all the developers that decide to spend energy and time working on the their platforms.

…pure garbage….

Promising progress on the QRCODE front.

Developing Microsoft .NET/UWP Windows 10 stuff is pretty easy and straightforward.
Using the (well known?) flexible lightweight ZXing Library:

ZXing.Net.Mobile is a C#/.NET library based on the open source Barcode Library: ZXing (Zebra Crossing), using the ZXing.Net Port. It works with Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Tizen, and UWP. The goal of ZXing.Net.Mobile is to make scanning barcodes as effortless and painless as possible in your own applications.

and saving the canvas as jpg/png.
Going to integrate it in the AWDASH apps and in pretty much all the future projects.
