Submission + - Writing Your First Windows 8 App (drdobbs.com)

CowboyRobot writes: "With the release of Windows 8, many basic features of Windows applications have changed. "It is indeed necessary to change the way you design the user experience, especially if you have previous experience with apps. You have to master the new way Microsoft thinks about Windows 8 apps, the UI elements, the controls, and the layouts... Forget about colorful icons, stop thinking about gradients, and don't even try to add mirror effects. Think a bit monochrome and keep things as simple and fluid as possible. These are good precepts to follow when initially designing the UI for a Windows 8 app with XAML, the new .NET Profiles, and especially the new Window 8 tiles.""
