I've always a wanted a simple, easy to use desktop app for monitoring prices of items that I plan to purchase.
What it does
Want helps users save money by monitoring Walmart.com online pricing for saved items and sending notifications when prices drop.
How I built it
With Visual Studio 2015 and lots of C# and XAML.
Challenges I ran into
I had lots of trouble with some UI stuff as well as the Windows.Storage APIs, but I was able to get all of my issues worked out.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Integration with the Walmart API and the relatively good design for the time I had to work on it.
What I learned
There isn't much documentation out there for Windows 10 apps (yet).
What's next for Want
I'd like to add a bit more polish and make this a production app very soon. I'm thinking about integrating with other services as well.
