This is just a direct port of the sample .Net code on the Sensis website http://developers.sensis.com.au/docs/examples/C_Example
It has been ported to run on WindowsRT

It seems to only return the first 14 results. You may need to mess about with the query string to tell it to bring back more "rows"
