I just about finish designing a Neowin App for WP8 and need your thoughts on it. It will not have forum or log in at this point. It's still at design stand and will be learning how to make a APP for windows phone 8 because I would like to do one.

 

Would like your thoughts on the design.

Use the color found in this logo http://www.neowin.ne.../logo-short.jpg

 

As for backgrounds for the articles, use an off-white or a cream colored style. 

 

Add a share button on articles (at the top) to post headline to twitter,facebook, etc)

 

Have the option to use the neowin color as the icons instead of the background and make the background cream colored or white (like iOS 7 is) for daytime reading

 

Make an app bar at the bottom, allowing you to post a comment.

 

Update the neowin logo font and remove the .net

 

Change the font to segoe UI or helvetica neue ultra light

I did some changes and add the setting and search to the concept. Also made the images bigger so you can see them now. :-)
