Im currently working with WPF and Ive seen a couple of examples on dnrtv and some other places. I'd like to see more real stuff. Anybody knows of good examples?

Here is a great example of a WPF app that really makes sense in the business world: Billy Hollis on Getting Smart with WPF

Billy Hollis is developing this app for a client that wants to enter the SaaS space with an application that not only looks great but also works well in a variety of environments where usability is key.

Witty is a Twitter desktop client: http://code.google.com/p/wittytwitter/


Not out yet, but I heard that the next version of Live Messenger is likely to be WPF.. That may be worth a look at once done. MS definately need to get more of their own applications upgraded to WPF to really "sell it".

Thanks for pointing to Witty and family.show. I worked on both of those apps.

Currently there aren't many real-world application running on WPF. I think that more applications will start appearing next year as more developers and designers get up to speed on WPF develeopment and design.

In the meantime, you can check out the Application Portfolio on Channel9 and Tim Sneath's Great WPF Applications list

While it's not a mainstream application, our new motion control application is written with WPF. The app is used to control motorized scenery over network connections, it's used in live theatre to move turntables, curtains, etc. The application is called SpikeMark.

Starting from version 3.5, Evernote's Windows client is WPF... much to the chagrin of many of their customers.

Do you know what customers don't like about the new evernote?

There are several issues. However, specifically regarding WPF, many are upset with the 'blurry font' issue that was not addressed by Microsoft until WPF4. See: http://saveevernote.com/, http://readableweb.com/users-report-fuzzy-fonts-in-evernote-3-5/, etc.

The Windows version of Bria from Counterpath is built using WPF.
