    I've just downloaded your app. I like how your design manages to reflect both the os and sony playstation branding. Just some feedback though.

    • I think the app would suit a panarama control, it feels like you have to traverse several lists before you can actually see some content, also theres nothing wrong with using successive panarama's where the content permits it.
    • If you asked the user what their preferences are you could surface relevant content when they enter the app.
    • The app would also suit a live tile, possibly even a cycle tile. Which could be implemented without using a back-end infrastructure.


    Let me know how you get on, my company is always on the look out for good apps to feature in our soon to be released spotlight app.

    First of all thanks for downloading and liking my app. :)
    Thanks for the feedback, now regarding the new features you've suggested:
    • If I implement Panorama page for secondary menus then to maintain the design unity in the app I have to make every secondary menu page a panoramic page. Some pages like NEWS | ASIA have 10 sub menus (Countries), If I make it a panorama page then it will be wrong designing because if user wants to go to the 6th menu then he has to swipe 5 times to reach it while in the current design user has to just press the 6th menu.
    • For your second feature I've already implemented the secondary tiles, you can pin almost every menu to your start screen. For Example: If you want to get the news from USA only then you can pin the NEWS| USA page to your start screen. Launching the pinned tile will take you directly to the NEWS| USA page.
    • Regarding your third and last suggestion, I'll look forward to implement it.
