GSSPUG Hub (Free App) for Windows Phone Now Available

My "artisan portfolio" of Windows Phone apps just DOUBLED in size!  Yes, I've now successfully published my second Windows Phone app.  :)

The Granite State SharePoint Users Group Hub is a somewhat minimal app, but if you're a member of the group, it's got some useful features.   My favorites are being able to get info about the next meeting, (both in the app, and as a live tile) and being able to RSVP through EventBright.

The direct link to find it in the Marketplace on your Windows Phone is this.

Regarding the name...  GSSPUG?  Ya, I know... it's not quite as intuitive as NHSPUG...    

If you're from New Hampshire, you know you search for "Granite State" any time you're looking for something local...  and if you don't know that, it probably is just as well you don't find it.  ;)

One other nice thing is that the content is largely driven from the group's web site, which, of course, is a SharePoint site.   The app does require a network connection, but it can be updated without having to go through the week-long process of publishing an update. 

Like Jimmy Sudoku, the app uses your phone's system wide theme colors.

Essentially this is what ends up in the Hub app.

And it appears like so:
