This is one in a series of articles about Time Tortoise, a Universal Windows Platform app for planning and tracking your work schedule. For more on the development of this app and the ideas behind it, see my Time Tortoise category page.
I decided to use the Univeral Windows Platform for Time Tortoise because I’m targeting Windows, and because UWP is the direction that the Windows user interface is moving (as of 2017). However, I knew from the beginning that UWP would not have all of the functionality of more established options like Windows Presentation Foundation. So as I make design decisions, I also look for ways to avoid getting stuck due to UWP limitations.
