I can’t believe I’m blogging from my phone- I’ll have to clean this up later 🙂
The Microsoft Band SDK was updated 2 minutes ago with ask the goodies we wanted yay!!
Update is for:
Windows Store Apps (yes!!)
– so it should work fine with universal apps
We have now also:
Rich content tiles – we can have barcodes and icons!
We can have buttons! (can’t believe I’m that excited about a button)
We can listen for tile and button events
Access to new data- calories
Windows phone background support
iOS remote or local notifications
Plus bug fixes I assume.
