Microsoft’s own app doesn’t follow Metro guidelines… looks like an iPhone app

Apple’s iPhone interface has invaded Windows Phone, courtesy of Microsoft themselves.

Microsoft Research recently released a new app called Dotastic, with an interface ripped straight from the iPhone’s default app styles. The iconic bottom bar with the glossy bevel is present, and is clearly identical to the iPhone.

Why can’t Microsoft’s own employees follow Metro guidelines? This is pretty amusing, considering how heavily Microsoft is pushing Metro onto everything. Of course things happen and departments inside Microsoft aren’t always in-sync, but this is pretty embarrassing!
