The other day, I was talking to my new friend Shayne Boyer (Windows Phone developer and motorcycle rider to boot).  See his blog here

As we're starting the conversation, he tells me that he just finished this awesome Windows Phone app.  It's an Amber Alert app for Windows Phone 7.  The app checks the 51 RSS feeds that each state uses for Amber Alerts.  The feeds are checked once every 15 minutes while giving you updates and detailed information about the abductee, abductor, and any additional info necessary.

From a development standpoint, here's what made the app:

-A wonderful use of Telerik controls for Windows Phone
-HubTile, JumpList, BusyIndicator, Chart, and ListPicker
-SQL Azure
-Windows Azure
-Entity Framework Code First

Here are some screen shots of the app, you can expect to see the app in your Marketplace soon!

This shows the most current amber alert:

The details of a specific abductee:

 As I said, the app is coming soon and we will let you know the minute it hits the market!
