|PictureNotes: new Windows Phone app submitted! and on omitting features
||[Dec. 2nd, 2012|12:08 am]
I just submitted the app I've been working on, PictureNotes, to the Windows Phone Store!
The idea is that if you're on vacation or somewhere you're taking a lot of photos, you can write captions or record voice notes right then. (I got the idea when we were on vacation and I took a lot of photos :-) )
I originally imagined the app as a Lens app (which is new in Windows Phone 8), but I ran into some issues with orientation changes - the live picture from the camera kept moving around. It mostly worked, but it was not a great user experience and since you can get most of the functionality by editing existing photos, I decided it wasn't worth making the app look bad by including the Lens part. (of course, now that I think about it I might have a way to fix it...maybe for the next version!)
Anyway, I don't think it'll be useful for that many people, but it will be useful for me, and that's good enough.
