Sorry for the lack of activity off-late, been busy with work and etc.
I must say I'm impressed with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and all the cool features. Which brings me to my update:
I'll be taking a break from developing widgets for Newgen (sorry, left the Music Widget half-done) in order to focus on my own UI launcher, aptly named Clara. I'm experimenting with different features to implement right now (inspired by the recent Windows 8 Consumer Preview), but my biggest problem would be a lack of a concrete concept. With that, can any of you guys help pitch in ideas and concepts?
Current features planned:-
- Metro-inspired Application bar that lists all installed applications on the local machine
- thumbnail bar similar to Newgen's thumbnail bar (subject to change, of course)
- Metro-inspired widgets on the screen, however, I don't want to emulate Newgen, and would like a different concept.
- Toolbar at the bottom of the screen, ala Android Homescreen style (maybe)
Do suggest more features or the concept that I should aim for.
If possible, I would also like help with the creation of icons and visual styles. I wouldn't mind turning this project into a big collaboration.
