Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.


Stack Mate is a simple Windows Phone app which pulls in your StackExchange account details and keeps you up to date with any activity on the site. This application was not created to browse questions, answers, users, etc but rather to give you a central hub for your accounts.

  • View your StackExchange messages, notifications and explore each of your accounts
  • Periodic checks for new messages, notifications and reputation changes
  • Pin a live tile for each of your accounts to have it update with your most recent information (reputation gained, unread message count, etc)
  • Tap on a message or reputation change to jump straight to the related question/answer/comment.

  • Windows Phone 7.5 (compatible with Windows Phone 8)


It's free! No ads. Just for fun.



  • 1.3 (March 2014) - previously for inbox messages and notifications to be marked as unread you had to log into StackExchange and select each item to mark it as read. This meant the app could be alerting you about inbox messages and notifications multiple times until you've read them on StackExchange, even though you've already read them in the app. Now you will only be alerted if they are unread on StackExchange and occurred after you last looked at the inbox message or notification screen within Stack Mate.
  • 1.2 (March 2014) - site names with special characters were displaying the html encoded equivalent
  • 1.1 (June 2013) - added the ability to order your sites and fixed the text for toast notifications
  • 1.0 (December 2013) - release


  • Silverlight for Windows phone toolkit
  • JSON.net
  • MVVM light
  • amCharts
  • Html5 agility pack
  • SharpZipLib-WP7

Nice app! Glad to not be the only bum who uses the new Windows Phone on stackoverflow. Would be nice if the My Sites tab sorted sites by rep. Looks like it's sorted by order of when I became a user of the site. –  Peter Turner Nov 25 '13 at 22:51
@PeterTurner Thanks Peter. Your wish is my command! I've submitted an update with an option to order the sites (so either reputation or a-z). I think the API sorts them by "site popularity" by default. Nice to see others getting some benefit out of it anyway! I really like Windows Phone! .NET ftw! –  Spencerooni Nov 30 '13 at 1:02
Excellent App this –  McVeigh Dec 13 '13 at 14:54
Nice, although still slightly unstable on WP7.8 - I had two crashes and one garbled Settings screen after 10 minutes playing around with it. Would it be possible to have my favourite tags placed somwehere, easily accessible? –  JensG Jan 25 '14 at 14:50
@JensG Thanks for the feedback. I'm using 7.8 and haven't had any problems but will keep an eye on it. So far the app is based around viewing reputation and notifying you when actions occur on StackExchange and purposely not around viewing questions/answers/tags/users on each site but I'll see what I can do. If you have any other suggestions please leave them here also! –  Spencerooni Jan 30 '14 at 21:50
