Windows Developer Show (Download)

The Windows Developer Show ( is a great Podcast that runs every Thursday by Ryan and Travis Lowdermilk. Topics are anything and everything about the Windows 8 and Windows Phone development story. They often have guest who are very well known in the industry as pundits or as developers with great content.

This problem however is podcast are only available in the U.S. and for about 5 straight shows the listeners were writing in stating that either they were having issues with the built in functionality of the podcast features in Windows Phone or that it was not available in their country.  So as a thank you to them and the contribution to the community, I created the app specifically for the Windows Phone and made the podcast available globally.  Please download, rate and share.  Send me feedback too and more features will be put in the app.

DZone app for Windows Phone.  Complimentary application to the Windows 8 app.  Built this application in  a few hours.  Due in part to code re-use through Portable Class Libraries, a Node.js service I wrote to support the original application and future platforms.
