Releasing the new Sample Browser Phone app

Starting its journey in 2010, Sample Browser is achieving its tetralogy by releasing a Windows Phone version Sample Browser today. The new Windows Phone app is the fourth milestone of Sample Browser since we released the desktop version and the Visual Studio version in 2012 and the Windows Store version in 2013. This time, by providing a sample browser designed for a ‘walking’ platform in response to MVPs’ suggestions during last year’s MVP Global Summit, we are literally putting a world of code samples "at developers’ fingertips”. If you like to have a code gallery of over 7000 quality code samples in your pocket, then click here to download our Windows Phone Sample Browser and start a fantastic mobile experience.

With Windows Phone version Sample Browser and the Internet, you can search for code samples on MSDN at anytime and anywhere you want, 24/7 and–even to bed. You can also check code sample details and share them with your friends. Compared to the other 3 pieces in the tetralogy (desktop version, Visual Studio version, and the Windows Store version), the Windows Phone version Sample Browser sells itself for convenience and instant connectivity. For those who need to reach code samples under mobile circumstances where no PCs is available, Windows Phone version Sample Browser will definitely be the right service you are seeking for. Aside from sharing samples via emails as the other 3 do, the Windows Phone version Sample Browser also allows you to share the sample via SMS and Near Field Communication (NFC).


What's Next

Currently, the Windows Phone Sample Browser only supports online MSDN code searching, but we already plan to upgrade Sample Browser to allow users to do ‘Bing code search’, and add and manage their private code snippets.  We will also upgrade the app to universal app. Universal App is a new concept brought up in the Microsoft Build Developer Conference 2014. It is a new development model that allows for a single app to be deployed across multiple Windows devices such as Windows Phone, Windows 8.1, and XBox. Therefore, once we finish upgrading Sample Browser to a universal app, you can synchronize your own code snippets across different devices; You can also mark a code sample as favorite on your Windows Phone and continue to study the sample when you are on your desktop. By then, sharing data between platforms will be a piece of cake. Also, the user experience of Sample Browser on different platforms will be more consistent.  The best is yet to come!


We sincerely suggest you give Sample Browser a try (click here to download). If you love what you see in Sample Browser, please recommend it to your friends and colleagues. If you encounter any problems or have any suggestions for us, please contact us at Your precious opinions and comments are more than welcome.

Oops. Our download counter overflowed with 10 MILLION Downloads Achieved!

When we founded Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework and built the portal 4 years ago, we did not expect that we can become so popular.  (Ok.  I admit that we planned for it Smile).  The sample download counter on our portal has overflowed!



Our sample download number has exceeded 10 MILLION this month, thanks to your support of our sample effort for collecting and solving developers’ real-world pains and needs. If it’s still the first time that you hear about All-In-One Code Framework, please use our Sample Browser apps to enjoying the learning of thousands of code samples.


The sample# and download# growth trends over the past years are promising.  We are committed to produce more and more quality samples that can address developers’ real-world needs.

Microsoft Refreshes Sample Browser with the support for 13 new Languages


Shortly after releasing Sample Browser last month, our team refreshes the app with an important feature for global developers:  Localized sample search experience.

Please visit to get the update.  If you have already installed the last version, Windows Store will notify you to get the update today.

Not only is the Sample Browser app UI localized to 13 new languages, but it also supports localized search.   For example, when you switch to the Japanese UI in the app Settings, you can directly type Japanese queries to search for Japanese code samples.  Get the new app for your language today!

  • English
  • Japanese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
  • Korean
  • German
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Russian
  • Portuguese
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Turkish
  • Czech



In addition, this update of Sample Browser includes over 20 performance improvement and issue fixes.  They may not deserve being called out individually, but you will feel the difference when you get your hands on it.  The team is committed to bringing the sample search and use experience to the next level.  We received tons of great ideas from MVPs during the 2013 Global MVP Summit.  The engineers are heads-down working on them in order to release a new version every few weeks.  Please install the app, and share your experience with us.   We look forward to hearing from you.


The localization effort of the Sample Browser app is thanks to the partnership with Microsoft ECO Localization Team (Martine Smets, Pei Wang), and the Japan MVP community (Mayumi Suzuki, Satoru Kitabata, and Japan MVPs).
