So developers can choose whether they want their apps to look match the Metro interface of WP7S, or they can go with a totally different design approach. Here’s a look a three third party apps built with Silverlight, shown at the keynote at MIX10.
This first app from AP uses the Metro interface, complete with pivots and large text menu options. You can filter by news category, read a story, or view multimedia features such as image galleries.
It also ties in to the AP’s commenting system, so you can comment on articles right from your device.
Then, they showed off a journal application that takes a totally different design approach.
Hush Hush allows you to integrate pictures and text into a nice-looking journal-like display.
And finally, though we’ve seen this before, there was a live demo of the 3D Xbox Live app, Harvest. The demo looked fantastic, with great framerates, detailed scenery, and very realistic 3D effetcs.
