    Download the app here.

    Sometimes I need to quickly look up a term I find on the internet, and currently the only Urban Dictionary app for WP has a really garish and cluttered interface. My current project (a client for The Old Reader) had to be put on hold temporarily so I decided to finish this up, a project I started a while ago to learn about a WP dev framework.

    It's pretty much the opposite of the current app: extremely minimal. Probably too minimal for its own good, but eh, it fits my needs.

    To do:
    • Add "Random Search" functionality
    • Sharing (that's better than just giving you a browser link)
    • Live tile with word of the day
    • Backport to WP7 (sorry guys)

    Urban Dictionary doesn't have an API, which means I have to scrape their web pages which is always wonky. If you find any words that cause the app to crash, be sure to tell me. Thanks!
