  • Hi Joseph, welcome to the forums.

    Now, you shouldn't ask for a complete solution, instead you should split your problem into several smaller ones and then search for each individual item. If you are unable to find the solution for that particular problem or if you have trouble with it, only then you should ask for help for that specific question.

    Now, can you clarify what exactly you have trouble with?

Any way i have several quotes and i wan to build a single screen application  with an array that has these quotes stored in them and when a user swipes the screen a new quote will appear and a quote number on top to make it appear as though it a new screen as shown in the image

  • Again, that is not a specific question, but more of an app description. If I can solve that for you, I might just go ahead and publish that application myself.

    What do you need help with?

    • Do you know how to create an application?
    • How to build, run and/or deploy it?
    • Do you know how to store data?
    • Create controls?
    • Handle swipe gestures?
    • Design and style XAML?
