Became featured app once again and about critical problem of Weather Tag Pro and Place Tag Pro

After becoming featured app on Windows Phone Store on August 25 and August 26, Weather Tag Pro became featured app once again. It will become featured app on Saudi Arabia market for all phones on September 11.

By the way, as many users reported, I noticed that Weather Tag Pro and Place Tag Pro have a critical problem with retrieving place information. As I checked, the problem only happens on Windows Phone 7.x, not Windows Phone 8. A fix was submitted and it will available on Windows Phone Store a few days later. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I love the feedback

At this time Weather Tag Pro received 29 rate and reviews. 22 of 29 are 4 or 5 stars rates. It is really great. They are made me proud and give me more exciting to work on Weather Tag Pro. Some of the reviews are really good. They don't just say what the user think about my app, they also tell me give me some ideas to work on. Here are a few samples:

Su Nokia Lumia 920: funziona, veloce, divertente con previsioni e temperatura molto precise. 2 cose da migliorare: il geotag ke mette solo la regione invece ke la città e le info sulla foto ke sono in inglese invece ke in italiano.
from an anonymous user, Italy

Die App funktioniert gut. Ich hatte mit einer anderen schlechte Erfahrungen gemacht. Eventuell könnte man bei den Orten nachbessern - da hier wirklich nur die Stadt angegeben wird (die andere App hatte noch die Postleitzahl dabei). Ich probiere es demnächst mal außerhalb von Berlin. Etwas umständlich ist, dass nach dem Foto erst mal der Fotoeditor geladen wird. Wenn man keine Effekte hinzufügen möchte ist das etwas zeitraubend. Oder ich habe noch nicht gefunden, wie man das umgeht. Ansonsten eben fünf Sterne, weil es wohl im Moment die beste Wetter-Foto-App für WindowsPhone ist. Ob das so bleibt, wenn - wie angekündigt - die InstaWeather usw. für WindowsPhone kommt? Wir lassen uns mal überraschen. Kaufempfehlung!

Good app, works good. Photo editor starts slowly on my Nokia Lumia 800. A skip option for the photo-editor would be nice. Dutch language would also be nice.
from Laurent, Netherlands

Beside the good reviews, I also received some bad (or maybe, not good) reviews. Most of them complain about the location, my dear users want it to work more accurate.

And here is my actions:

- A skip option for the photo-editor was added in version 2.3 (or 2.5)
- Dutch is supported in version 2.6 (with correction in version 3.0)
- And the most wanted, improvement in retrieving location information, it was added in version 3.0.

Please try it and let me know your feedback. Let me know if you like it, or even hate it. Thank you.

Happy Weather :-)

BTW, as always, my dear users, you can always send me feedback directly via email. You only need to open "about" menu item on the start page, then tap "Send feedback" button.

Weather Tag Pro 2.3 is available on Windows Phone Store and what will coming with v2.5

A few days ago, Weather Tag Pro version 2.3 appeared on Windows Phone Store. This version supports Italian in full. Yes, it means the photo editor supported Italian. In addition, a new feature that many people want to have, editing place, is included in this version also.

As I mentioned before, I expected that version 2.5 to be released in a few weeks. Now I would like to announce that Weather Tag Pro 2.5 will support square pictures. It means you can take and create pictures with weather information in all the ways you like (portrait, landscape and square) :-) Of course, Weather Tag Pro 2.5 will come with improvements and bug fixes also.

Hope that you will love, use and support Weather Tag Pro.

Cheers :-)

What's new in Weather Tag Pro 2.2?

In previous post, I mentioned that version 2.5 of Weather Tag Pro will available in a few weeks. But there is an accidental problem, Microsoft asked me to pull Weather Tag Pro from Windows Phone store due to a non-technical problem. Yesterday I summitted a fix (version 2.2) and hope that Microsoft will make it available soon. In addition to the fix, Weather Tag Pro will have an important improvement. Together with English and Vietnamese (my native language), from version 2.2, Weather Tag Pro will support Italian.

Why Italian? Because an Italian is mad with me and rated Weather Tag Pro 2 stars because I didn't support Italian. Just kidding :-) At this time, Weather Tag Pro was reviewed by 5-6 people and most of them are from Italia. I see Italia as a potential market and I hope Italian will love and use Weather Tag Pro :-)


BTW, again, I'm not an Italian. I'm a Vietnamese :-)

Vài điều cần chú ý khi phát triển ứng dụng Windows Phone với Visual Studio 2013 Preview/trên Windows 8.1 Preview

  • Visual Studio 2013 hỗ trợ việc phát triển các ứng dụng Windows Phone (khi cài đặt bạn nhớ check ô Windows Phone) nhưng nó chỉ hỗ trợ Windows Phone 8. Nếu bạn muốn tiếp tục phát triển các ứng dụng cho Windows Phone 7, bạn cần cài Visual Studio 2012. Đây không phải là vấn đề quá lớn khi Visual Studio 2013 có thể "sống chung nhà" với Visual Studio 2012.
  • Nếu bạn sử dụng Windows 8.1 Preview, Visual Studio 2012 và Windows Phone SDK sẽ hoạt động bình thường. Tuy nhiên bạn cần cài đặt Visual Studio 2012 Update 3, nó sẽ sửa một vài vấn đề về sự tương thích của emulator.
