This summer I decided to build something for WP7 in Silverlight to learn something new. Places I’ve Seen was the result of my learning experience. It was fun to use Silverlight, it’s very easy and the Visual Studio Editor for Silverlight/WPF is amazing (didn’t try Express Blend yet) and the data binding of controls saves a lot of boring work.
Based on Where I’ve Been, Places I’ve Seen allow you to save a list of your visited locations around the globe, as well as a list of locations to visit (like a wish list). There are three ways to add items to your lists:
- by typing the name and choosing from a list;
- by picking a image from your library (only works if you have geo tagging on);
- or by adding the current location using GPS (this only adds to the list of visited places).
In addition I thought it would be cool to view images from each place so I added that functionality that searches images on Flickr from a place of your choosing.
Here are a few screen shots of what it looks like on the phone:
