To support me I used some free applications out there to count my calories and the combination of macro nutritions. Unfortunately no app (I could get hold on) was satisfying my needs.
So I just took the opportunity and tried to do something new - with Windows Presentation Foundation. The first time for me - at least with this level of complexity.
Trying to do a very good app design with a fancy new GUI look and feel should be doable with WPF. Using animations for transitions - inspired by the clean Metro design from http://www.windowsphone7.com/ might make the optical representation really good. Modern hardware supports that stuff anyways.
And the option to access some codebasis to create a mobile app for my (upcoming) Windows Phone 7 would make that a nice approach too...
The following technologies I am using right now:
- .Net Framework 4.0
- Windows Presentation Foundation 4.0
- Entity Framework (included in Visua Studio 2010)
- Visualisation Framework (included in VS 2010)
- SQL Server Compact Edition (single db file).
