  • Hi,

    I am trying to develop an app that will be executed when someone presses the "share page" option from internet explorer 11 in windows phone 8.1. So basically an app that can handle web URLs in the form of "http://www.abc.com". What type of file type/URL association should I use. Please help!

    Is is possible to share/access GeoFences and Routes? (Foreground and Background)

    I wish they would've dealt more with FileSavePicker. I have the Sample, but it is not clear where you code the source of the file you want saved. I have a button, it plays a sound. I have a Context Menu on that button, press and hold and gives option to Save To (filesavepicker), but it saves a blank file because I cant figure out where to put the file path of the audio file in the code.
