Neowin app WP8

48 posts in this topic

Posted

I have been working on an app for Neowin for people that have wp8.

This app will allow people to view the news from the site from their phone without opening their browser on the phone.

I would like to add the forums to the app but I don't have that kind of access to the site.

 

Here is a video of the app in action. It is waiting to be published to the store right now.

Good effort, is it 512 MB supported if Yes, then will definitely try it.

Looks nice, but I'd make the neowin logo "flat" to match the Metro icons in the OS.

Along with a flat logo as suggested, you should make the section names lowercase. So "News" should be "news", "Follow Us" should be "follow us" and so on. I believe it is how most Modern UI designs go.

This is a good effort but perhaps you should take permission from the admins of the website to use that logo and name? I don't think its protected by trademark but still no harm. Just saying.

Yeah, talk to the site admins and let them know about this so you can get the forum support as well.   That's the part people use the most.

It's cool to see an Neowin app for the Windows Phone. :) Shame you don't have access to the forum data because it would be cool to access the forums from within the app as well.

I had started one in 2010 with the WP7 beta SDK. Sadly never finished, it was a pain at the time :( Found a video of it and uploaded it:

 

 

Good job, bhast2, on getting it done and approved :D
