Face Detection on Windows Phone

Developer.nokia.com organized an Imaging challenge for developers. I haven’t done much with wp8 lately, so I decided to take part to the competition.  The winning articles were really good, and this time I wasn’t one of them. But it doesn’t matter I had a lot of  fun with facial recognition on Windows Phone.  You can find my article from Nokia wiki: http://developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Detecting_Faces_on_Windows_Phone

I ported the facedetectwp7  library to the Windows Phone 8, and I added a new simple example app showing how to use the library. You can get my wp8 port from my github-repo: https://github.com/Summeli/FaceDetectionWP8

Here’s the example application from facedetect library in action:

Windows Store

You can also play with this example just by downloading the app from Windows Store: http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=41237b2c-eb3f-4dfa-be0b-3aaf28bf6afe
