Geek Library for Windows Phone 7 is live!


At last my very first app for Windows Phone 7 has gone live! Its actually a major milestone for me as not only have I actually finished something, but its my first every release of something into a public marketplace (apart from my kids of course…).
I’ve really enjoyed developing this, trying to use it as a learning experience for developing with Silverlight for Windows Phone 7 and putting in as many bells and whistles as I could. The fact that it passed certification first time shows the effort I put in!
I’ve included the marketplace spiel below and a link to try the free trial, so please give it a go and let me know what you think! I’ll be fully supporting and updating the app so any feedback is much appreciated!
Here you go:

Geek LibraryGeek Library helps you to keep track of your entire library of books, movies, music and video games on your phone and optionally backed up to the cloud.  Scan an item or search a huge online database and pull back cover art and details. Add the item to your library or add it to a wishlist and keep track of the best deals available. Rate your stuff, update the details and add your own cover art if you want.

Here is a list of what you can do with your very own Geek Library:

* Sync to/from the cloud
* Supports multiple languages and locale switching for getting deals from different territories
* Mark things as up for sale/sold/loaned to a friend
* Keep a playlist of things you haven’t read/played
* Rate all your items
* Quickly see loaned items and who has them!
* Fast app switching

Coming soon:

* A desktop client that syncs between the cloud and your phone
* Selling items direct from the app
* Live tiles straight to your playlists

  1. I’m sorry but I didn’t undestrand how to synchronize my Lumia800 with the cloud. Is there some manual or information anywhere? thank’s

    • Hi,

      You can setup the sync with the cloud through the settings within the Geek Library app. On the home page of the app, you click on the settings ‘cog’ at the bottom of the page. This will take you to the settings. From there you can swipe the screen to the left or right until you get to the cloud sync settings. You then just need to enable the cloud sync and enter an account and password that you want to use. Click Login and then click manual sync to perform your first synchronisation with the cloud.

      From then on, the app will automatically sync any changes to your data to the cloud.

      I’m currently working on a supporting website/instructions for all this to make things easier!

      Hope that helps,

      Justin
