Cimbalino Windows Phone Toolkit is a set of useful and powerful items that will help you build your Silverlight applications for Windows Phone.

The Toolkit is divided in projects, regarding different Windows Phone application required capabilities:

  • Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit - the base project of the toolkit, containing base MVVM services, some very usefull converters, helper classes and extension methods, and the bindable Application Bar behavior
  • Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit.Camera - MVVM compatible services for camera access
  • Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit.DeviceInfo - MVVM compatible services for device information access
  • Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit.PhoneDialer - MVVM compatible services for phone dialer access
  • Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit.UserInfo - MVVM compatible services for user information access

Note: this toolkit is only compatible with the Windows Phone SDK 7.1!


The packages are available thru NuGet here, with the same handles as the project names (e.g., the main package is "Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit")


I hadn't seen this toolkit before seeing it mentioned today on Windows Phone Geek, Cimbalino Windows Phone Toolkit. Looks interesting...
