Chess Clock Pro on Marketplace by Daniel Zeller
Posted on June 2, 2011
Idea of a student
Daniel Zeller wanted to write a digital chess clock for players, but he had never developed an application for Windows Mobile platform before. He decided to search for 3rd party controls to shorten his development time in order to quickly and effectively turn his idea into a real product.
iPhone like user interface on Windows Mobile
Daniel had vision to create nice looking user interface, and he found that BeeMobile controls would fit his vision. He started to use RegionControl as a Toolbar at the bottom of his applicaiton, iWheel as a Time Picker, and Transparent controls.
Another application on Windows MarketPlace: Smoothies for WM
He found that development with 3rd party controls saves him a lot of time, and the controls are more customizable then the default controls in Visual Studio. Then he decided to write another application for mobile users and give them for free. The application was named “Smoothies” and it contains smoothie recipes. It is also available on Windows Marketplace. Here you can see some screenshots:
