Windows 8: Local Application Spotlight – See Sharp Guys

12/17/2012 12:27:00 PM

Lately, I have been highlighting applications in the Windows 8 Store that have been created by local application developers.  Today, I am going to show you three apps from the prolific duo, the See Sharp Guys.

The See Sharp Guys have produced not one Windows 8 application, but three!!!  Simply outstanding work.  Let’s take a quick look at the three apps they have published (so far… I expect even more in the future!)

Slot Machine

Better yet, the See Sharp Guys are looking for input on what to add to the game.  Customer service at its finest!  




Alarm Clock

Lottery Numbers


That’s right!  The See Sharp Guys have built an app that let’s you pick the winning lottery numbers!  Why didn’t I install this app a couple of weeks ago when the Powerball was enormous?  Ok, not really.  But this app does let you look up the winning lottery numbers from around the country, so no searching the intertubes to see if you can retire the next time you buy a lottery ticket.

You can get started today by building your own Windows 8 application at GenerationApp!
