The MixRadio C# SDK is compatible with Windows Phone 8, Window 8 and .Net Portable Class Library apps. The SDK will power 'launchers' that interact within a 3rd party app, as well as an API to retrieve song data. Nokia MixRadio is a free music streaming service that allows listeners to create personalized radio stations by rating songs positively or negatively.
