Cousinosity explains relationships

Cousinosity is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace! At the moment it is very simple: input the generations to the nearest common ancestor and see what kind of cousins you are (“fourth cousins twice removed”, etc.). There are a few amusing Easter eggs with the edge cases. Cousinosity is useful for quickly settling the perennial argument about what “second cousin three times removed” means.

This is my first foray into development, and I was astounded at the high quality of the resources and tools MS provides, even for a total beginner. I have several ideas for more ambitious (and useful) projects in the coming months, but I wanted to start contributing to the community as soon as I could. Any ideas, suggestions, or criticisms you have are welcome!

Cousinosity  is free and can be downloaded from Marketplace here.
