Windows Phone 8.1 introduces new mechanisms to allow applications to execute while not in the foreground. A converged Triggers and Background Tasks implementation allows tasks to launch on time, location, push, Bluetooth and system events. Learn how new resource policies affect how and when your application runs in the background and how to use these new feature from Windows XAML and Microsoft Silverlight 8.1 applications.
Apps should be tested before submission. Every app is unique, so a unique test plan should be created to test the components of each app. When creating the test plan, a few factors should be taken into account: app modules; how those modules interact within the app and in which order they are initialized; and which modules are required for the app to run. Based on this info, the modules should be tested. In this session, Mickey talks about how, through testing, you can ensure the highest quality for your app.
