Can anybody point me to information for interfacing with a windows phone from a windows/windows store app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have searched everywhere but I can't find any libraries or even any information on accessing data on a windows phone either via USB or bluetooth from Windows. I want to build a simple windows desktop or store app to view calendar and SMS's on my windows phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

  • This is not possible. The data is not exposed off of the phone. For the calendar your best bet is to connect to the same services (Exchange, Live, Google, etc.) the phone connects to. It is likely that this is already hooked up on a Windows machine to its local calendar.

    SMS messages aren't available to general purpose apps even on the phone.
