Enhancing Windows 8 Apps: News App
Windows 8 apps look good but I think it can be improved even more. News App is one example. It could be displayed better by slightly moving elements around, adjusting kerning and leading and adding boxes and thumbnails on related articles.
Metro and flat design doesn't mean boring. Adding textures or even subtle gradients and shadows are also good. Hope Microsoft improves the Metro design language further and focus more on the finer details. That would be awesome.
