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.

-HubTile, JumpList, BusyIndicator, Chart, and ListPicker
-Entity Framework Code First
