Take a tour of the Art Center demo app, the project that is the focus of this chapter's tutorials.
- Before we get too far into this chapter,…and building in the Universal Windows Application,…I thought I would take a short tour of the finished…project, so you get an idea of what the app looks like,…and where we're headed.…This is an application for a community arts center.…You can see it here.…I've run it recently on the Xbox.…It's called Orange Valley Art Center.…The idea is, we have this community art center that…films their classes,…and they would like to share that with a wider audience,…so they've built an Xbox app, where they can showcase…these videos, and possibly get more students.…
You see I've run it in the past, so it's showing up here…in my short list, but I can also get to it by going to…my games and apps,…and finding it here in the list.…It's right here Orange Valley Art Center.…Press the A button.…That launches the app.…You see the splash screen, and then the main UI shows up.…The way this application is configured,…is there are three pages.…There's the main page, there is a Catalog page,…and there is a video details page.…
