The reason why I have been writing so much about creating WCF services is that they are very easy to consume and use on Windows 8 application. So I will show you how to create Windows 8 application that uses the WCF service that was created here.

  1. Create new Windows Metro style Blank App
  2. Right click project and choose Add Service Reference...
  3. On Address textbox put your WCF service url. I used http://tapanilablog.azurewebsites.net/Service1.svc and click Go and then OK
  4. Edit MainPage.xaml.cs
  5. Done!
