Hi all,  really proud to announce that Microsoft have decided they like what I'm doing and have made me an MVP again.   I love doing line of business mobile apps  and clearly from the feedback I get, you like hearing about it.

Amazing what one guy and a server sitting on a fridge can achieve.

Thank you all.
