WinPhone Info Redesign

by Kevin December 23, 2011 09:30

After my big Bill Reminder update, instead of taking a much-needed break, I decided to turn WinPhone Info into a full-featured app with an all new interface... 3 weeks and about 200 hours of coding and debugging later, it is almost ready.

Besides all of the new features, I really wanted to switch the main page from Pivot to Panorama style, because the Panorama style provides a more professional look and feel, and it really showcases the simple beauty of the Metro UI. However, it does present a lot of challenges for a design-challenged developer like me - splash screens, background images, hub tile images, UI responsiveness, etc.

Here is a link to an excellent article on the proper use of the Metro UI - When Metro design falls off the tracks.
