This application provides you information about local times in cities around the world. Additionally it shows Earth so it is very easy to find out, if it is day-time or night at specific locations. It is possible to select a city and the globe rotates, so that selected city is in the center.
This is my first universal application. Your settings are shared for all devices.
- Local time in more than 20000 cities
- Beautiful Earth with day and night texture
- Change order of cities
- List of cities is shared for all devices (Windows and Windows Phone)
The application is free of charge, but displays advertisements. It is possible to remove advertisements via in-app purchase. Just one purchase is necessary to remove advertisements on all devices (Windows and Windows Phone).
There was a Bing application in Windows 8 that displayed image of the day. I used this application to check out Bing image every day. However, in Windows 8.1 the Bing search was completely redesigned. Although the new search is much more powerful, there is no way to easily see Bing image every day in a live tile. So I decided to fill this gap and created “Bing Image of the Day” application. The application is very similar to the old one. It displays images at screen and in live tile. Additionally it can change your lock screen image every day.
Planning Poker for Azure
Planning Poker web application allows distributed teams to play planning poker using just their web browser. The application does not require any registration at all. Scrum Master just creates a team and all other members connect to the team. Observer role is supported too. The observer can watch the game, but cannot play planning poker. This is perfect role for product owner.

Simple Azure Virtual Machines Manager
Simple Azure Virtual Machines Manager is minimalistic web portal to start and stop Azure virtual machines. It enables you to start, stop and connect to virtual machines in Microsoft Azure. It might be very useful in cases:
- You use Microsoft Azure for software testing and you want to save costs by running virtual machines only when testers really use them.
- You want your virtual machines to run only when needed.
- You want people to be able to start/stop virtual machines without access to full Azure Portal.
It is possible very easy to enable access only to users in your Azure Active Directory.

Game of Generals
Game of Generals is strategic board game for 2 persons + arbiter. Main objective is to capture opponent's flag, while pieces on board are eliminated based on ranks. Task of arbiter is to decide which piece is eliminated without exposing ranks to players. More information about the game and rules can be found in Wikipedia article.
Goal of this project is to eliminate need of arbiter in play. In fact computer can do this task. Multiplayer is available over LAN. The game is not finished yet. At the moment you can play it, but it is stable. And most important UI is very very simple. Actually I stopped at my incompetence to design nice UI.
As the game is not finished, I decided not to publish it under open source. However, if you would like to contribute (mostly appeal on UI), do not hesitate to contact me.
