Creating a cloud-based application offers many advantages, including increased security for your users’ data, the ability to build communities around your app, and the ability to share content across multiple devices seamlessly. However, setting up a server infrastructure to implement your cloud can be a major hurdle. This is where Buddy.com comes in, offering a hosted service for your cloud-based apps. And if you have joined the Nokia Premium Developer Program, you have access to up to 1 million Buddy.com API calls a month, enabling you to build your Windows Phone 8 apps quickly without having to worrying about the backend.
In this webinar coding demonstrations show you how the Buddy APIs deliver common app scenarios as a service. Using the Buddy APIs, you can instantly add functionality such as global user accounts, photo albums, messaging, friends/groups functionality, push notifications, and more to your apps.

London, England and Espoo, Finland – Foxtons, London’s leading estate agent, has chosen the Nokia Lumia 820 as its business smartphone and has so far deployed around 900 to its employees.
With 35 offices throughout London and two in Surrey, Foxtons let and sell around 1,400 properties every month. In such a fast-paced, competitive environment, the need for Foxtons agents to receive, update and share information quickly while on the road is critical to its success.
An important reason for Foxtons’ switch to Nokia Lumia was its tight integration with the company’s existing Microsoft infrastructure. Foxtons uses Microsoft Outlook to ensure that employees are armed with complete property information for each calendar appointment, so that at the touch of a button they have all the material they need to close a deal. And easy synchronisation means that any appointments made at Foxtons head office can be quickly transferred to the agents’ smartphones.
Between viewings, agents can check emails, make targeted calls and prepare for their next appointment, maximising their time out of the office and keeping them one step ahead of the competition. The built-in Microsoft Office applications on Windows Phone 8 mean that they can also work on Excel spreadsheets and edit Word documents whilst away from their office PCs.
This competitive edge is vital for Foxtons, whose in-house development team was already familiar with developing applications in the Microsoft Windows environment and has now begun deploying its own apps for the Nokia Lumia 820.
As Dan Rafferty, IT Director of Foxtons, explains: “In a fast moving business with many staff movements across departments and locations, keeping an accurate, up-to-date contact list is a challenge for us. We’ve developed an app integrating our personnel system with our active directory and phone system so all the information is accurate and can be accessed directly from our agents’ Nokia Lumia 820s. It’s a great timesaver and asset for the team. The Nokia Lumia 820 aligns with our entire device strategy and allows us to fully integrate our current Microsoft systems throughout the company.”
With agents covering large areas, the mobile navigation features of the Nokia Lumia 820 were also an important factor in the switch to Lumia. Nokia Drive offers free turn-by-turn navigation with live traffic updates and offline maps, removing the need for separate satnavs or an A-Z. When showing prospective clients around a property, agents can use Nokia City Lens to show live information on the local area, showcasing points of interest and amenities including leisure centres, cinemas, restaurants and shops. Foxtons agents can now have everything they need to know about the area in the palm of their hand.
Adrian Williams, director of Business Sales UK at Nokia, said: “Foxtons is a great example of how a company can empower its workforce to work effectively on the move, with their smartphones integrated with its existing Microsoft infrastructure. We are delighted that Nokia applications such as Nokia Drive and Nokia City Lens are making a real difference for Foxtons employees in the competitive real estate market.”

App-to-app-communication support is a powerful addition to Microsoft Windows Phone 8 that enables your apps to use the functionality of other apps. It also can help you increase the discoverability of your apps in Windows Phone Store, when you register the types of files and URI resources that the apps can enhance.
In this lab, you’ll learn how to use file and URI associations in Windows Phone 8 for app-to-app communication. You can use such associations to automatically launch your app when another app launches a specific file type or URI scheme. A deep link is used to send a reference to the file or URI to your app. This webinar also introduces the association launching API to launch another app in the same way.
We suggest that you install the Microsoft Windows Phone SDK 8.0 in advance to get the most out of this training lab. While you’ll learn a lot with or without the SDK, you’ll learn more if you have the SDK installed and can begin using the API as soon as you complete the training. Also, it will be helpful to have a Nokia Lumia phone built on Windows Phone 8 available for testing.
