There are several interesting ways to interact with a Windows Phone. Sensors provide information from the user and outside world to the operating system and applications. In this chapter, we will explore the various sensors and learn how we can utilize them in our applications.
The most obvious interaction method, with a modern smartphone, is the touch interface. Many of the controls that ship with the development tools include support for the common touch interactions. Other interaction options include the microphone and accelerometer, which we will also review.
