How do I save on Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store app

I want to save my game state in a WP8 and W8 app. Even though I searched the forums and checked the manual I cannot find a way to do so.

I am unsure if Roaming can be useful from the Windows 8 object or if WebStorage can save it as JSON and actually save it to the device's isolated storage.


Any pointers are greatly appreciated.


Thank you

There are some tutorials on the issue. Check the one below. I used it to start deploying in WP and can guarantee it works fine.

You'll have to start Visual Studio, too. There are detailed instructions on the tutorial above.

Thank you very much. I can't figure out how I didn't find it....the search engine is weird.

Don't beat yourself over this. I went to a lot of trouble until I found this myself. :)

Ah my bad, it's the one I read a while ago. It has no information about saving a game :( .
