Microsoft today unveiled a new logo for Windows 8 to fit more with the Metro design language that has won much praise from media and consumers alike. The logo uses the Segoe typeface that is making its way into all Microsoft branding and products, but the traditional flag has been replaced with a strangely angled flag window. Unlike the actual design of Windows 8, I don’t like this at all. What do you think? Let us know in the poll below.
This is essentially an app that allows you to pin a note to your home screen. When you enter the app you are faced with four lines in which to write your notes. These notes will then appear on a live tile when you pin the app to your home screen. The idea of this app is great, I find it especially useful for things such as writing down my prep (homework but for private/boarding schools) and reminding me when I have music lessons.
The amount of customisation that is possible on the live tile makes this a very good app. You can change the colour of the tile to any of the theme colours on you WP7 device and a few additional ones such as slate, cherry and camel. It is also possible to change the background image to things such as a light bulb and an exclamation mark.
This weeks App Of The Week for Windows Phone 7 is MegaTile.
This app allows you to create custom tiles to pin to the Metro UI home screen of your Windows Phone. This tile can be customized to fill a number of different functions from linking to a specific web page to acting as a speed dial for a single contact. This app is made even better by the fact that you can use a picture from your photo album as the image on the tile. In addition, such images can spread over multiple tiles relating to a single topic.
This is a great app which is a must have for all WP7 users who yearn for that extra bit of customisation.
