Pareto is right again.

After being busted on a toggle switch, I started to cover edge scenarios for my WP7.1 project.

Stuff like:

  1. Is the Location Services enabled
  2. Is there an active network connection
  3. Is there a WIFI connection.

Turns out the best solution for all of these is a different user experience, nobody wants their users to wait for the timeout events, even if it is covered up by a nice busy indicator, etc…

Turns out the three new corner case needs at least as much work as the normal use case and definitely more than the development of just the main functionality.

The ratio is probably not 80-20, but it is getting closer.
