Applications in Windows app store


Wordlist series is a bunch of simple but useful windows applications for Chinese students to recite english vocabulary. 

It is written when I just begin to learn html and javascript at the end of 2012. At that time, Windows just lanched windows 8 and windows app store, students are able to get free licence for publishing their own apps through dreamspark platform. Out of curiosity, I write this simple app. Out of expectation, it becomes quite popular, even reaches top 5, 7, 9, 10 in top free education apps. 

Though the code is not perfect from my perspective now, but from the response of my app users, some of whom even wrote emails to thank me, these apps really help some of them. It is also the first time I experience the whole process of publishing a product, which is not just debug and fix a program. As a developer, we should consider more about what comsumers want, package and emphasize what is special about your product. So these apps become a milestone when I first get touch with web development.
