FlightPredictor now available on the Windows Store for #win8! [Aug. 17th, 2012|09:58 am]

I'm happy to announce that FlightPredictor is now available on the Windows Store! As usual, it has a ton of features, plus some new goodies like live tiles and beautiful city backgrounds.

I started working on the app in April, and since them I've poured a lot of time into it. The app has around 11K lines of C# (and 2.5K lines of XAML), and it took on the order of 150 Subversion commits.

Special thanks to Jared Bienz (@jbienz), Ryan Joy (@atxryan), and a bunch of other Microsoft people who helped me along the way. (also, thanks to whoever's working submission duty - it went from submitted to approved in about 12 hours!)

Next up: more improvements to the app and marketing, marketing, marketing! I'm also working on porting the marriage map to Windows 8.
