by Michael Crump

This course will walk you through four new features included in the Windows Phone 8 SDK including: Speech, In-App Purchasing, Wallet transactions and the new Map control.

What you'll learn

The course is designed for those who already have some experience working with the Windows Phone 8 SDK. Maybe you have already worked with the additional tooling and implemented the new tile types or lock screen notifications. In this course, I will walk you through four other core features including: Speech, In-App Purchasing, Wallet transactions and the new Map control. All of these four features can be found in many professional Windows Phone 8 apps currently in the marketplace.
