Windows 10 (UWP)

Saying ‘Goodbye 2016’ (and a small preview into 2017)

This year was again a turbulent one for us. We had a few ups and downs, but overall we enjoyed it. What happened this year at MSiccDev?

Bringing UniShare to the PC with the UWP version

Tutorial_07

This year, we finally did the next step and brought UniShare to the PC with launching our all new written UWP app. We had a great team of beta testers finding out a ton of bugs, helping to make UniShare a powerful and great app. Thanks to all of you again, without your help UniShare would not be as awesome as it is now. We kept improving UniShare and added some cool new features, including translations into more languages, a connection to our SimpleLeet Converter as well as a Translation feature into Klingon.

But we do not stop here. The current situation of Windows Mobile (formerly known as Windows Phone) is difficult. That’s why we had to move on and started development of UniShare for Android. Here is a sneak preview:

Releasing the official WindowsUnited.de app as public beta in the Google Play Store

Also this year, we published Windows United for Android, which is our first public Android application in the Google Play Store. WindowsUnited is a German Microsoft news page, and we are happy to develop their official apps for both Android and iOS. The Android application is a public beta, everyone can download it for free from the store. We target a final release in early 2017 and will also launch an iOS version in 2017.

We will continue to work on these two projects in 2017, and you will see also some new stuff from our side.

So, let’s say goodbye to 2016 and look ahead to 2017 by wishing you and your families a happy new year.

Simple Leet Universal, our first app built for Windows 10

promouniversalappWhile we are working on UniShare for Windows 10 and are close for another update on our  beta, we have also found the need of testing some of the new features that Microsoft provides with Windows 10. Simple Leet is the result of our test, and we liked it so much that we decided to publish it as one of our public apps.

Simple Leet Universal easily converts text into leet speak.  It supports five levels of conversion and allows you to copy the converted text to your clipboard for pasting in anywhere else or use the Windows share mechanism to spread the converted text.

What is really cool about this app is – other developers can easily call the converter mechanism from within their apps. We integrated a so called ApplicationService, that provides that functionality. All other developers need to do is to integrate this package in their app to provide this functionality in their app.

We’ll continue to improve this app as well over time, the next big feature will be to let you customize how each letter gets converted.
