Do you know of an app for Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Phone 7 that let me use stackoverflow.com and hast most (if not all) features of the site itself. Maybe there is one currently in development? I was hoping for a more streamlined user experience on my current and future smartphone.
Not only does Stacky claim to support Windows Phone 7, it actually does! :) And I am building a WP7 client using it. Here are some early** screen shots:
** Note that this is very early and none of the UI is final.
Meanwhile Luke jumped in regarding his upcoming Windows Phone 7 client, so in addition to the options outlined below you might watch his activities to eventually be amongst the first to try it :)
I'm not aware of an existing one for either platform yet. If nobody jumps in regarding the in development question, you seem to have the following options for the moment:
I'm pretty slow to the battle... but I love just StackOverflow so i'm working on my own quick & dirty client. Just to show my profile details and maybe some of the latest questions... Just for me to read when i'm on the road... I'm no Jon Skeet or anything.
Warning, no design work has been done WHATSOEVER!
I'm hosting the source of my personal TFS instance, but when I get close to release, i'm going to open the source up so someone can learn from my mistakes.
I am using the SOAPI api, and it really allows me to create excellent XAML sample data using Visual Studio and databaind to the results of the queries directly.
UPDATE: App now on Marketplace - see Overflow7 - Stack Exchange sites on Windows Phone 7
Love the look of these apps - Stack Overflow and the Metro UI are a great combination.
Using the excellent Stacky library as a start, here's my latest app - "overflow 7".
There's still more to do - and there always will be - but you can see the app in action at:
I submitted it to the Marketplace late last night - based on Microsoft's current timing and allowing for one resubmission loop, then I expect the app will be available in about a week.
I've run out of free app submissions - so the price will be 0.99. All money received will encourage me to add more features. If 0.99 is too expensive, then there is a free never-ending full-function trial available :)
I want to get this v1 app through the marketplace first, but once it's accepted then I'll open up a new question asking for feedback, suggestions, ideas, contributions...
