Windows UWP Version Adaptive Code

UWP applications are the constant recipients of new functionality. This is, obviously, a good thing for those of us who’d like to build a meaningful user experience a la WPF or WinForms.

This version is now in the Windows Store. There are only a couple of minor changes:

  • Included one time non obtrusive dialog box to beg for rating

The first item – import/export changes – are an attempt to make it easier to get “stuff” into and out of eclecdec.  Individual cards, specifically, in this case.  Primarily, I’ve been using this to exchange cards with eclecdec for Android, which I haven’t written about yet here, and which (yeah, I know) uses a different storage format than eclecdec for Windows.  More on the dichotomy between the two applications (usage patterns as well as functionality) in the New Year.

The second item should be self-explanatory.  Please rate the app if you use it.

Happy Holidays!
