    All the documentation shows how to create a cross platform app using C# but there's no info on how to define the UI in XAML for all platforms. If you find any such resource or know about it please let me know it..
    From what I understand the UI has to be native to each platform, you can't use XAML anywhere other than the Windows platform.

    When I type the state (example: Los Angeles, CA) it removes CA and only saves 'Los Angeles,' perhaps that is where the inaccuracy comes from?
    I didn't try it with Location on, so I would assume that's why I'm the only one with differing results.

    Just offering feedback so you can perfect the app, it's a good app otherwise!
    I'm using the built-in location service of the weather API which is not that feature rich. It's pretty basic and only offers 'city name, country code' search. I will add Google geociding API so that I can improve the location accuracy. But it needs some testing. Because, it should not introduce any new bugs or break the current functionalilty. Try with the GPS enabled and it should work good! If it didn't work it might be the case that their weather station is located far from you location. Have never been to LA. But it sure seems a hell of big place! Anyway whatever the reasons be, I'll add the Google location API and Dark Sky weather API for better accuracy. Thanks!

    Question for the developers here - the windows 10 mobile emulator in the visual studio software can only work if the pc has windows 10 pro? Is that the way it is? If yes, why?

    Yes! That's the case. Windows 10 mobile emulators require Hyper-V which only the pro version has. Sadly that's the reason I'm testing Strawberry Weather on LUMIA 520.

    I agree with white_shadoww. Although it is actually pretty quick and easy to have it running your app with debug on an attached Windows phone, in which case I don't think you would have to have Windows 10 or Hyper-V

    Yes, but with the emulators you can test different screen sizes and densities. With physical device, you are limited to 1 or 2 devices. But debugging on actual phone is just as important!

    Very true! An emulator is important for testing the screen sizes and how it runs on various devices.

    Just a quick PSA for anyone developing Windows 10 apps... If you haven't signed up for the MS TechRewards, formerly DVLUP, do yourself a favor and sign up...

    https://rewards.msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/challenges

    They sometimes have challenges for certain app features or functions and reward you with XP and points. Points can be turned in for developer benefits. Right now they don't seem to have any app challenges, but they do have some training videos you can watch to earn XP. They changed it recently, so I'm not 100% sure that XP translates to points... but regardless, the videos may prove useful.

    I saw a post that had a guy who claimed to have hyper v on his pc enabled but no pro version - he still can't do it?

    It would be great if it was possible. Can you post the link?

    That would be realt helpful! Especially the videos. For someone like me without any professional knowledge or training, such videos and documentations prove a lot useful!
