Spinning Natively And Windows Bug

Post Image

Shai Ifrach spent the weekend fixing one of the harder Windows Phone issues we had, sometimes on some Windows Phone devices the UI would start with a black screen but never when connected to the debugger!

Simple Stuff

Post Image

I hope you registered for the upcoming LTS lecture, last week there were close to 1000 developers registered! Sometimes the most important features we can add are really simple things that we just procrastinated on forever. Case in point: multi-line labels.
