You need I candy to make ppl use It.


God no, this is the problem with a lot of software.
You need a good balance between usability and eye candy. Eye candy alone leads to horrible to use software.

Good Job Zain, must say it looks very nice and very usable. Team up with a developer (if you're not already) and get this made, i'd pay!

Microsoft really should hire this guy. Time and time again he's made some really awesome designs that outshine MS's own.

Thank u. Yup I was trying to find that balance here. And if MS open up their stores here I might pick this up and learn to code. Make apps and such. Bring my design to use.

The MS devs really ****ed up the default apps.

Anyone else really love that 500 ms lag between right-clicking on something and having the playback control buttons slide up?



Don't have any issues like that mate. I even "Play To" my Xbox 360

My only recommendation, and it's a strong one, build in-app search. Do not use the OS Modern Search. That is all. And allow direct selection and same context menu options on search results.

UPDATE: Here I have scaled the UI using same resolution but for a 10 inch display like the Surface RT. This is how the app will look on the Surface RT if the UI and touch sizes are kept exactly as they are in my earlier design for a 100DPI screen.
