On Windows Phone it's possible to provide a context menu to the user when an item is long pressed.
I have a list of items (waypoints the user has added to a map) which I'd like the user to perform various actions on: Go to, delete, edit, share, etc.
The easiest thing to do would be to provide a context menu when the item is long-pressed. However I feel this isn't an obvious UI interaction so many users may end up missing it.
I'm a newbie at Windows Phone development so am seeking advice to try and provide the best user experience... Does anyone have any nice alternative suggestions that would work well with a list based on the standard Windows Phone UI? Or perhaps some convention to use that makes sure the user is aware of the context menu?
The list items are rich in detail already, showing name, timestamp, latitude and longitude - so this can be further enriched. But I'd like to follow existing well established conventions where possible.
