I’m happy to announce that Media Remote is finally getting an update for Windows Phone 8!
The main feature is that both the server and app has been rewritten from scratch to get more reliable Communication. The app now uses Spotify for all data instead of relying on LastFM. The application has also got a facelift with a new UI for several views. Here are some screenshots:

Just thought I would give you all a quick trick when using the Windows Phone emulator. Normally the emulator only takes input from the on-screen keyboard. To use your keyboard instead (which can be a huge time-saver) press Pause/Break key on your keyboard (Page up will also work). To enable on-screen keyboard again just press Pause/Break key again (or Page Down).
For more about the keyboard in the emulator, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff754352%28v=vs.92%29.aspx
I’m currently working on an update for Media Remote for Windows Phone. To begin with I am again redefining the transfer protocol between the client and server. And while rewriting the server code I also took the time to refresh the UI of the server software. As you can see in the screenshot below it has a more clean, metro styled interface, with the blue color that I use on the icons of my apps. It is not completely done, there is still some work to do the dropdown menu for IPs and the checkboxes.
The new design to the left and the old to the right
The goal of the remake is to make the server and client communication faster and more stable, but also prepare for possible expansion to control more than just Spotify from your phone.
Feel free to suggest improvements and thoughts on the new server software!
Nokia has released a great tool for us developers, a tool that generates nice looking banners for our apps. Just go to http://snac.nokia.com/2/omt and choose Windows Phone and input your marketplace link and it will pull icons and information from the marketplace!
It generates a lot of different form factors, and they will even host the banner images for you! Below are some of the banners generated for Hitta Bostad:

Jag har nu skickat in en uppdatering för Gasmackar till marketplace, primärt fixar den så att man kan navigera till alla mackar som har korrekta koordinater. Appen har även fått en ansiktslyftning med ett nytt utseende som enligt mig följer metro stilen bättre! Uppdateringen kommer troligen dyka upp inom den närmaste veckan.
Nedan är några skärmdumpar från senaste versionen:

I previously wrote about the new app Gasmackar, which finds gas stations in Sweden. It also shows the stations within 50km. The app also has a live tile, displaying the current average price. (Updated about once a month). All data is from http://www.gasbilen.se.
Below are some screenshots:
SMS-Tickets 1.3 is now available in Windows Phone Marketplace. I have rewritten the whole application to improve performance, and are now also using databases to store information instead of XML files. But the main features is that it is now fully compatible with Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). After a user request I have also added support for prefixes for phone numbers.
With mango also comes 2 sided tile support and multiple tiles, so finally you can pin your favorite tickets to the start screen and create a ticket in just one click! The live tile will on the front show which city the ticket is for. The backside will show more information as what ticket type (Adult, child, etc.), how many zones, if a prefix is used, and/or if night price is chosen.
- Pin tickets to the start screen
- View the bus companies website right inside the app
- Add and use prefixes for phone numbers
- Support for Windows Phone 7.5
- The app is now completely free!
- Updated information about most of the bus companies
- Added the bus company “Din Tur” (Sundsvall)
