I've been working on a Windows 8 & Windows RT app for Giant Bomb and thought I'd show off some work in progress / try to gauge interest. My goal here is to make something very similar to by WP7 app (http://www.giantbomb.com/forums/general-discussion/30/giant-bomb-for-windows-phone-7/495842/) and to build something that matches the Win8 design patterns.
Here's what I'm planning:
- Browse Promos, Reviews, News, Podcasts, Videos
- Integrated video player w/ support for PlayTo - send your videos directly to a DLNA target from the app
- Background audio support for podcasts
- Live tile showing latest updates (possibly push for real-time updates)
- Integrated w/ Win 8 search and share
- View the wiki w/ a detailed view for each entry type
Here's some screenshots from an early build to give you a feel for how it might look. I've mostly been working on video playback and news at the moment, but other views would look fairly similar.
Here's what I'm looking for in terms of feedback at the moment:
- Windows 8 isn't out yet so this is a bit speculative - but assuming you were running a Win8 PC or tablet would you be interested in this app?
- What's the one killer feature you want?
