Some months ago WP Hermes started as a small project to provide information about Microsoft Products like Windows Phone, Windows, Xbox … to a Greek audience. Over the time more and more people showed interest in WP Hermes and expectations have been growing ever since.
Finally to meet these expectations WP Hermes released their official Windows Phone app a little over a month ago. This has allowed people to read about everything related to Microsoft in Greek!
On first sight, WP Hermes is just like any other news application. It features reading the news, which is displayed in combination with high resolution images and sharing functions. The application can also provide the latest news per category allowing users to read whatever they want. These categories include: Apps, Games, Hands-on, Reviews & Editorials.
Besides these key features, the official WP Hermes application also features several impressive and unique features, such as commenting on articles and Live Tile support. The Live Tile is available in 3 sizes as you would expect from any high-quality news application.
WP Hermes also offers a featured app section, which enables the WP Hermes team to promote any interesting application worth your money. This also allows for Windows Phone developers to promote their (Greek) Windows Phone application. This can be requested by going to WPHermes.com/contact.
Again, here are the features of the official WP Hermes application in a short list:
- Media-rich high-quality news feed
- Full sharing features to built-in social networks
- In-app commenting on news articles (!)
- Filter news by category
- Media-rich Live Tile support (!)
- Featured applications
The official WP Hermes application is available for free in the Windows Phone Store, however to unlock certain features or to remove advertisements you need to purchase an in-app product.
