The availability of sophisticated mobile applications on many platforms constitutes a challenging task. In order to cover the most relevant mobile operating systems and make the best use of their underlying features, the native development on the target platform still others the most diverse possibilities. Aside from the most widely spread mobile operating systems - namely Android and iOS - the Windows Phone platform oters a unique design language and many developer tools and technologies for building Windows Store apps. Making use of the capabilities of modern smartphones enables the development and use of desktop-like applications. The built-in sensors, cameras and powerful processing units of such a device other a versatile platform to build against. As a result, many mobile applications and technologies have emerged. However, information on profound insight into the development of such an application is hard to find. In this work, the development of AREA on the Windows Phone 8.1 platform is presented. AREA is a location-based mobile Augmented Reality engine and already available on Android and iOS. By porting the engine to yet another mobile platform, more third-party mobile business applications can integrate AREA and make use of its efficient and modular design. This work also points out the differences in implementation between the Windows Phone version and its counterparts on Android and iOS. Insights into the architecture and some references to the mathematical basis are also provided.
