WinRT: Static Local Storage Settings

Application settings are useful for quickly storing some value for later runs of the application. A great example of this is storing the last selected item id so that the next time the user runs the app we can start by loading the last viewed item. Another scenario is for searching when our application is in a closed state. Our search code may require a selected item. Using application settings enables us to quickly store anything we need between runs of our application.
