I have had a lot of positive feedback about the early preview of my project to allow custom Windows Mobile Today Screen Items to be written in C# or VB.NET. In the past few days I have been working on formalising this project and putting some plans in place to further develop the concept.
The CodePlex webpage for this project shows two additional releases (Alpha 1 and Alpha 2) since the proof of concept I demonstrated in my previous blog entry. One advantage of these new releases is that after bouncing some ideas around with Peter Nowak I have managed to significantly simplify the installation process for custom items.
To help promote this framework I have also put together the following screencast to help demonstrate how you can utilise the latest release to create your own custom today screen items in C# or VB.NET.
I would love your feedback on this screencast. Watching it myself it is clear that I need to improve my technique, but hopefully this will come with practice. It defiantly seems easier to demonstrate some things in video form rather than via words.
