Pilzkenner (Mushroom App)

After a lot of delay my first real Windows Phone app is now published!

It's something totally different to the Kinect stuff I've done before. The app is called "Pilzkenner" which means "Person who knows a lot about mushrooms", or more literally "Knower of mushrooms".

It can be downloaded from the WP marketpace, I've also created a website for it it here.

There's a free version, a standard version and the pro version. I've begun working on it in April and used it myself while collecting mushrooms this fall.

Publishing Apps...

... is not for impatient people.

My 'real' app was rejected because it contains sensitive content which is not allowed in countries like China. You'll wonder yourself as soon as the app is online and you'll see what it's about.

Here's the original text:
"The application contains sensitive political content and includes countries listed in Group 1 within Application Certification Requirement 3.10 in its targeted distribution. "


So I have to resubmit it and just select the unrestricted markets. Maybe it will be published by the end of next week. Meanwhile I'm localizing it to English (right now it's German only).
