Metro, Microsoft’s new design language built for creating fast and fluid experiences on a number of platforms is really getting a lot of attention these days. Lots of people love it and yes, some hate it, but one thing is certain – it’s different than what people have seen before. If you’re building Windows Phone apps (and you really should… it’s a lot of fun!) you may find yourself a little lost when designing your apps with Metro in mind. This post will help you with finding some of those answers.
A while back, I wrote a five part blog post series on our Canadian Mobile Developers blog (which there will be changes to – more on that in a later post) that talked about Metro Design for Windows Phone and why it’s awesome. It’s worth checking out as it provides a lot of great tips on building great Metro-style experiences on Windows Phone.
