Some day i was staying in metro and testing the app i’ve been working on. Something went wrong. Issue was that images were not loaded as device was connected to the internet via GPRS.
App should load smaller images.Luckily server supports multi-res image output.
There are 3 ways of getting conenction speed on device. And only 1 of them works properly.
1. HttpWebRequest and WebRequestExtensions.GetCurrentNetworkInterface (not reliable)
2. DeviceNetworkInformation.ResolveHostNameAsync (breaks tombstoning)
3. Socket and SocketExtensions.GetCurrentNetworkInterface
The third option works like a charm.
All the code is in the Zip file on the dropbox.
Important: Don’t forget to invoke ConnectionSpeedManager.CheckConnection() in Apps OnLaunch and OnActivate methods
