How to Build a Windows Phone App Part 2: Using OAuth – XDA Developer TV

We recently began a series showing you around Windows Phone application creation. Part One talked about using NuGet. Now, XDA Developer TV Lance is here to start you off by showing you how to use OAuth.

OAuth is a security method used to ensure a secure connection to an API using a third party service.  Did we mention it is secure?
