How can I put a "privacy policy" to Settings charm in WinJS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Isn't there a "for dummies" kind of page for just putting the privacy policy to the settings?

    Losing valuable time here.

    My app's "English Version" doesn't need the privacy statement in the settings tab. But exactly the same app in "German Version" does.

    Windows 8 app development is like struggling with Internet Explorer only 10 times harder and no Stackoverflow support.

    Those who built IE now decided to built something bigger.


    Somebody please "simply" explain "How I can put a "privacy policy" to Settings Charm in WinJS" and I promise I will go back to my own PHP+JS world and never return.

  • There are several references out there that a quick google search turns up for inserting a privacy policy link into the settings charm. It in general seems to work the same way you would add any other content to the settings charm for your app. Assuming you can detect the language you're app is running in, you can either register the settings area, or not.
