A coworker showed me this website today and I was amazed with collection of mobile application user interfaces this website has collected. The site contains screenshots of some of the popular mobile apps as well as some applications that are not as popular but with great interface designs.

I was working on a prototype application today when I needed to use a BulletList. At first I thought it existed on the toolkit controls but to my surprise it wasn’t so I ended up creating an ItemsControl template that mimics how a BulletList would behave. I wanted to post it here to show you how I did it:
I was really excited last Monday after seeing Expression Studio 4 has been released (I have to admit that I’m one of those developers who logged in at MSDN at 12 midnight to check if the RTM bits are already out. hehe). I think this is great news for all XAMLers all over the world. On thing that I’m really sad about though is that our corporate MSDN license only has Expression Studio 4 Professional and not the Ultimate version. Bummed. So I ended up downloading the 60 day trial up until I can figure out how I can get a copy of the full version (OK, here’s the part that I ask donations to get a full copy but I’ll leave that out. LOL).
Sad, but still happy. At least I have 60 days to enjoy this new tool.
