@TheFaxman: Hey, I had stumbled upon your Windows Phone app but I didn't know you made one for Windows 8, really great job! Thanks for the proposition, it's really a great idea. Unfortunately I don't have any protocol handlers in place yet, but we could also do the opposite: since I'll focus more on the calendar and news part of my app in the future, and not so much on showing a lot of data for each game, maybe I could link to yours to display more data about the games. Let me know in PM :)

@Ghost_Cat: I think developping on WP is great and fairly straightforward, the tools and language are very efficient. I'd say it's the most "productive" mobile platform to work on, but you have to keep in mind that it still has only a few users compared to the "big players" (iOS and Android).

Thanks a lot guys. I really appreciate it :-)

Please let me know if you encounter "Network error" issues, a few users have experienced this and left me bad reviews, but I can't seem to reproduce it and I see absolutely no error or downtime server-side. It's quite frustrating.

@selbie: Thanks ! It will be Windows Phone 7 compatible, I don't see any reason to restrict it to WP8. If you're interested in checking out a beta version, you can send me your WP Live ID to gametracker@live.com and I'll include you :)

@steelerzfan101: Thanks :-)

@Chromium: Sorry about that, the first release was US-only but it should available everywhere by the end of the week.

Hey guys,

I have been working on a personal project that was just released and that uses the GiantBomb API for some of its data. It’s a Windows 8 “Metro” app called GameTracker which allows you to browse upcoming and anticipated games to prepare your gaming schedule. It also allows you to see images and news of your favorite games, and to quickly search for any upcoming games.

I released the first version last week and I am currently adding some more features to make it better (a calendar view and filter settings among other things), but I’d love to know what you guys think and if you had any feedback or suggestions :-)

There’s also a Windows Phone version on the way, with full synchronisation of your favorite games.

Here are a few screenshots:

You can download it from here : http://apps.microsoft.com/webpdp/app/gametracker/5ce2d2ac-6cfe-4131-aac3-136ece02ec74

Also, don’t hesitate to rate and review it if you like it :-)

Thanks.
