The Windows 8 Finder Template is a template developed to allow developers to quickly and easily create a location based type application for the Windows 8 store.  It allows a developer to easily pull existing point of interest data into the app to display on a map. If no point of interest data is available, it is accompanied by a backend server which allows the importing of data which can be used to feed the Windows 8 application.

In this session, Mark Arteaga shows you how to create a location-based app using the Finder App Template.
