windows live sdk for windows phone 7

Interest in the Windows Phone 7 platform is growing quickly and the need for apps is increasing faster still. However, not everything related to a consumer's Live profile is available on the phone natively. On Dec. 7, 2011 Microsoft released a new Windows Live SDK which allows access to Calendars, Contacts, Documents, and more. We'll be walking through the SDK and learn how to implement calls to Windows Live in order to support the rich functionality desired by consumers of Windows Phone 7.

Phone APIs vs. Live SDK FIGHT!
  • FACT – As a developer you need both sets of APIs in order to create the best experience
  • FACT – The phone can read just about anything
  • FACT – Live SDK can create, read, update, or delete just about anything
  • FACT – Another name for a Microsoft Windows tutorial is 'Crash Course'!

  • Can only Read and Delete Recurring Events

Use for reading when you want to read a specific calendar

Subscribing to Public Calendars

  • Use the Appointments API when no data connection exists
  • Inform the user they need to go to the Calendar Application to create or update a recurring event
