Fast App Switching and MvvmCross. How to make it work.


Fast App Switching and MvvmCross. How to make it work.Mobile Development

by Roberto on December 31, 2013 with 4 comments

Today I’ve found an issue with Fast App Switching in Windows Phone 8 while using MvvmCross.

The main problem is that MvvmCross navigation model will not be enough to make it work. When resuming the app, MvvmCross will correctly load the view and the viewmodel. However, the system will launch a navigating event that won’t be handled by MvvmCross and you will end up with a navigation error or a view loaded without datacontext, depending on your app’s configuration, as the navigation event that the system will launch will be directing your navigation to whatever page you have set in your project’s WMAppManifest.xml file.

1- Open your IIS

2- Select the Server on the left menu.

Hi to everyone, after experiencing some issues with the Windows Phone Store people my third app has been finally published. I’ve been forced to change the name of the application and remove any reference to banking in it because they wouldn’t have published otherwise.

Ridiculous, if we have into account that there are lots of apps out there in the WP Store that store bank account numbers and credit cards.
