    Hello I am new to wp7 and looking to get into making some fairly simple apps. My question is is there a way to make custom pinning for apps that do not have that feature. Example I would like to make app or a tool to create pins for parts of any app like say I want to pin a checking account I had on pageonce where I can go straight to account info for any account and view balance and transactions page and maybe even build on that a live tile that can display some data off that screen like the current balance or most recent transaction. If this is not possible is there a way for me to create an app that can access the data that pageonce uses to back some nice mobile apps for banks like wells Fargo to do the same things I mentioned and use as standalone bank app

    Third party apps are sandboxed and can't see each other at all, so you can't use them to pin parts of a different app. Your best bet is to request this feature from the developer.

    I'm not sure how exactly pageonce works, but unless they have a public API you won't be able to use their services in your own app. You also won't be able to use the data that Pageonce stores locally on the phone, thanks to the sandboxing.

    Sorry for all the bad news, but that's the way it is.
