This last week I have been thinking of how MS will implement their marketplace on their main hub, and here is the way I would do it. If I worked with MS on ideas or design I would recommend them to make a simple tile that links to the marketplace application, and here is what I would make that tile do.
- Look Nice, and has some function behind it.
- Make it so when an app I have installed is updated. A guy wearing a marketplace shirt pops up and has a thought bobble saying â€œUpdates Availableâ€ or something in that nature.
- Have a line of app icons that are always moving, and the apps displayed are either new or recommended applications.
- Make it so when you hold it and shake it, the tile can update with a new line of applications or a better function.
That is all I would love to have on the hub, and if that is possible, it would rock.
Do you guys have a new found love for Windows Phone 7 after Windows Phone live was announced yesterday? I know I do.
