OData and Windows Phone 7 Part 2

In my last post, we walked through accessing the Twitpic OData feed to retrieve a collection of images for a particular user. We ended up with an app that simply displayed a list of ShortIds for the images concerned. In this post we’ll jazz things up a bit and display the actual images. The picture…
