How to implement a simple notification system in MVVM Windows 8.1 Universal apps
If your app performs actions, you most probably would want to add also some confirmation if an action has finished. There are some ways to do this, like using local toast notifications. While I was working on Voices Admin v2, which is a universal app, I came along with a helper to simplify using local toast notifications. However, there came the point, where I got annoyed by the sound of these, and I looked into possible ways to replace them. My solution is a simple notification system, that uses the MVVM Light Messenger.
