Microsoft’s latest move to give developers a simple, straightforward way to use its Motion API is a welcome one, but there’s another big benefit: it lets developers easily build a simple interface that’s as easy to use as it is to read.
In the spirit of the video, we’ve compiled a series of step-by-step tutorials on how to build a basic Motion app using the API.
There are some major differences between this tutorial and the ones we’ve done before.
For one, this is a real app that will show you how to use the API to create a real-time camera app that lets you capture and manipulate your footage.
The other big difference is that we’ve included some handy tips to help you get the most out of the API as well as a step-through walkthrough of how to get started with it.
With the latest update to Microsoft’s documentation, developers are getting more information on the API, and Microsoft’s own documentation on how it works is now updated with even more helpful information.
Microsoft is also working on a video for developers that will give them a quick reference guide on how the API works, as well.
Microsoft has not yet released any guidelines on how developers should use the Motion API, but the company’s new documentation should help.
This tutorial is aimed at developers who are building a Motion-based camera app for Windows Phone 8 or later.
If you’re new to using Motion, check out the Microsoft Motion Developer Guide and our video for the easy introduction to the API for Windows.
