OneShot 1.5 now available in the Windows Phone Store
I’m pleased to announce that the next version of our camera app OneShot is now available in the Windows Phone Store.

We were also working on the current release which contains a couple of interesting new additions.
OneShot now available in China
While we’re working hard on the next version of OneShot, I’m glad to announce that the app from now on is available in the Chinese Windows Phone Store. This great news for our customers in China who are now able to download OneShot as well as for us, since the Chinese market is one of the biggest in the Windows Phone ecosystem.

Lock Buster gets bumped to version 3.0
Today I’m glad to announce that Lock Buster 3.0 has reached the Windows Phone Store. The third version of Lock Buster follows in Hello Friend’s footsteps and adds support for more customization options. Color effects make your lock screen look even more exciting! The app offers various modes like a high contrast one and a black & white mode. Moreover, users are now able to select addons which show additional information on the lock screen.
Update: Hello Friends 4.0 now available! More Fun with Addons & Color Effects
I’m glad to announce that the fourth version of Hello Friends is now available in the Windows Phone Store.
A lot of user feedback has reached us since the first version of Hello Friends. Most of them were asking for even more customization of their lock screens. Thus, we were reacting on the user feedback and implemented some nice new features. Hello Friends 4.0 for Windows Phone 8 supports addons that can be combined with your collage.

Creating a Windows Phone 8 app from Head to Toe Part 2 : Project Structure
Welcome to the second part of the tutorials on how to build a Windows Phone 8 app. Follow this link to get to the first article of this series.
Last time we built up the vision and identified the requirements of the app called Hello Friends. This time I would like to go a step further and to think about the project in general.
Hello Friends updated and pushed to all Windows Phone markets worldwide
Hello Friends has reached the marketplace in its current version 3.1 with improvements for WP7 and WP8 devices.
The Windows Phone 8 version comes with these changes:
- Improved update mechanism: The previous version sometimes had problems setting the current lock screen image. This is now solved, the lock screen will be updated even more reliable.
- Bug fix for the selection of custom contacts: Some users reported that the app crashed without any notice when trying to select custom contacts. A memory issue was solved so that this problem will no longer occur.
The Windows Phone 7.5 edition contains the following improvements:
- New preview mode including miniatures of all available templates (the same one that was previously released for the WP8 edition)
- One new template
- Bug fix for the selection of custom contacts (equivalent to the WP8 bug fix)
Both editions were released globally to all existing Windows Phone markets, now also including 42 new countries with stricter content rules (including China and Indonesia).
You can get the updated version directly from the store:
Hello Friends 3.0 is now in the Store with support for Windows Phone 7.5
The third version of Hello Friends is now in the Windows Phone Store! It also supports the Windows Phone 7.5 platform. So I’d like to tell you what’s new in the current version:
First of all, we did an overall improvement of the user experience. We got very much feedback from our users (we appreciate that, thank you!), so we were able to tackle problems on several devices as well building a better usability.
The list of improvements covers the following feature updates:
- 2 new templates (“6×10 Friends” is now the template with the highest number of pictures and “9 Accent Mix” contains a box that is colored with the phone accent color)
- New preview mode
- New template selection window that shows miniatures of all templates
- A new live tile
- More refresh intervals
- Shuffle option when previewing your collage
- Performance improvements
- Several bug fixes from feedback of users
You’ve read right, there’s also a Windows Phone 7.5 edition available. Since it is not possible to change the lock screen automatically yet, you still can create your custom collage and set it manually as the current lock screen. We hope that the coming update of Windows Phone 7.8 will include the mechanism to get the same experience of Hello Friends as in the newest OS from Microsoft.
Here’s a picture of the template selection window with miniatures of available templates:
If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know! You can get the latest version 3.0 right here:
