I am a college student, a Windows Phone enthusiast and start-up developer, and soon to be a Windows 8 developer. Though school is kind of hard, I've just published the first real app I've ever made to the Windows Phone Store and I'm hoping to publish lots more.

Take a look at myTube, a wonderful new YouTube client for Windows Phone 8

You shouldn’t have to stop your YouTube videos just to read a couple comments.

myTube is designed to keep your video playing, no matter what. Read comments, check out a user’s channel, search for videos, and even change settings without ever missing a bit of your video; all the while running at a clean 60 frames per second. The result is one of the smoothest and most fun YouTube experiences you can get on your Windows Phone.


And with one of the most beautiful live tiles around, myTube is worth a shot. I think you’ll like it ;)

Photo Shader, the pixel shader inspired photo editor for Windows Phone, has just been updated to version 2.2!

With the improved performance, and some memory saving techniques, Photo Shader can now save photos in their full resolution!

Five new effects have been added with this update, and new effects are guaranteed to be added with each and every update! All of the previous features are still there, such as the easy to use interface, drawing and erasing effects, adding and removing effects from a photo that as already been saved, the live tile, etc.!

QRCodeFor those of you on older devices, don’t worry, the WP7 version will be be updated along side the WP8 version indefinitely. The WP7 version will receive all of the effects, and most of the features of the WP8 version!

Photo Shader Updated for Windows Phone 8!

The pixel-shader inspired photo editing app, Photo Shader, has been updated with support for Windows Phone 8!

The update brings a redesigned interface, built to be much faster and more intuitive, now with support for pinch to zoom and landscape editing. Support for all three Windows Phone resolutions is also included. Rich Media support has been added, allowing you to edit a previously saved photo and change its effects from the Photos hub!

As always, there are over 40 stackable effects and adjustments in Photo Shader, with new effects being added in each and every (very frequent) update. Each effect can be undone, and drawn/erased at your leisure. The app takes advantage of Windows Phone 8’s dual-core CPUs, leading to a much faster experience.


For those of you on older devices, the WP7 version will continue to be supported for as long as feasibly possible. Both the WP7 and WP8 versions are being developed concurrently, sharing the mostly same code, and will be updated simultaneously with WP7 getting all of the effects and most of the features of the WP8 version.

The tile is rendered in high resolution, and is ready to be shown in full clarity on the larger tiles of Windows Phone 7.8 and 8.

Full support for the dark and light themes has been added as well, and you can pick the theme independently of what you have set on your phone.
