If you’re a developer that’s wondering why your app hasn’t been approved by Microsoft for sale on the Windows Marketplace, or you think it’s not doing too well, there could be a reason why. Despite the amazing functions that can be done with the app, nobody is going to enjoy using it if it doesn’t look good. Design and aesthetics plays a huge role in everything we do nowadays, so why not take the effort to make your app look better?
The folks over at Nordkapp have released a Windows Phone 7 Cheat Sheet to help developers with their app design. It is based on Microsoft’s Design Guideline documents so it doesn’t stray too far from the source while it offers additional input that could help you out. However to you non-developer folks – you can have a look at it anyway to see what goes into the design process of developing an app for WP7. Even iOS/Android app developers might learn a thing or two from it.
Head over to the Nordkapp blog to check out the designers cheat sheet.
