My first Windows Phone 8 app is in the app store: Speedo++
Actually, I cannot take full credit (even most credit). The app is a brand new Windows 8 Phone release of an existing Windows Phone 7 app by Long Zheng titled “Speedo Plus“. So, Speedo++ is Speedo Plus, plus a bit more
Long developed Speedo Plus to provide an aesthetic speedometer app for driving, bicycling, even walking I guess … anything that involves motion over distance. The app provides info on current speed, plus average and maximum speed (in this trip), along with a graph of speed over time.
Now, the trouble with Speedo Plus is it didn’t cater for new high-res Windows Phone 8 handsets and displays, but Long’s developer account had lapsed. He made the app available to the public for someone else to take on the app, which I gladly did.
This first build of Speedo++ is fundamentally Speedo Plus with little modification apart from support for higher-def 720p displays. However, I have future plans which include modernising it to use newer GPS/navigation APIs and the addition of new features.
