Nokia Windows Phone: Question 3

By Nick Randolph

We’re running a challenge wherein you can Win a Nokia Windows Phone. The rules of said competition are detailed in the aforelinked post. There will be many more questions over the coming weeks, here is Question 2.

Question 3

Unlike other smartphone platforms, that typically follow a similar design based on series of icons that launch applications, Windows Phone has a unique experience with the Start screen made up of Live tiles. This coupled with its Metro design language gives Windows Phone a very distinct look.

Application developers are encouraged to reuse this same design language, specifically designing their applications so that they match the Windows Phone style. This includes support for themes (dark/light and the accent colour), as well as reusing the built in styles.

Discuss one feature, or design, of an application you’ve worked on (doesn’t have to be published) that makes it distinctly Windows Phone?
