Adding Panorama Control
In this section, you will be adding the Panorama control to the initial Main screen. The Panorama is part of the core Windows Phone experience. Unlike standard applications that are designed to fit within the confines of the phone’s screen, panoramic applications offer a unique way to view controls, data and services by using a long, horizontal canvas that extends beyond the confines of the screen. It helps to think of a panorama control as being similar to a magazine cover. A panorama should allow a user to explore content that highlights what is relevant to them. Highlights included on the Panorama control should serve as an entry point to further action. The focus of the panorama should be on a small set of tasks that are fresh, dynamic, and compelling. The panorama should not to be the standalone interaction of your whole application, nor should they be overwhelming, dense, or all encompassing.
