The service allows applications to deliver notifications, called Tile and Toast messages, to mobile devices running the Windows Phone 7 operating system. It centralizes and simplifies error and problem reporting by alerting registered devices when error conditions are triggered, while at the same time notifying Microsoft of bugs or problems uncovered in the operating system.
API methods support sending of either tile or toast notifications, either immediately to a single device or via queued delivery to multiple devices. Queued delivery allows for multiple retries where devices are not available to receive messages. Methods also allow retrieval of a list of devices associated with an account.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
