If you own a Samsung Windows Phone device, you probably noticed that there is an update available for the stock Diagnostics application. The default build is 1004 and the new one is 0210.
As you probably know, the Windows Phone SDK comes with an emulator that is locked down to the maximum – the developer only has access to Internet Explorer and to a limited number of settings. However, today I found out an indirect (and maybe not that optimal) way to access various applications that are blocklisted, but are still available on the device.
Dropped phones are not that uncommon of a phenomenon. My idea was to find a way when this happens while a third-party application is running on Windows Phone. No phones were destroyed or damaged during the experiment.
The Isolated Storage Explorer Tool is new with the Mango SDK (7.1). In this video I am talking about general capabilities of the application and why you should use it if Isolated Storage is a component part of your application.
