    Don't get offended. But I like WP8 way more than this or 8.1 in terms of UI. And if I wanted this much colour, I'd simply go for Android L. L gets it better than this.
    Why should I get offended? No problem, man We all know Microsoft wants to merge Windows and Windows Phone in a single OS, so probably WP is gonna be like the desktop OS, that is much more colorful.

    The idea has just passed 1200 votes on UserVoice (about 3x in 24 hours) and it is in the first page. Thank you for your support!

    Love this concept, I've always love the Windows 8 UI and was a bit disappointed that WP doesn't follow the looks. I've gave 3 vote on uservoice (wish I could give more).

    Anyway, here's my idea. You know the alphabet thing that usually put on a list

    wp7menu.jpg

    Maybe you could change it more like Windows 8 style, like this :

    (Also, this is a bit unrelated to this topic but I've also think that you should be able to access the alphabetical jump list in the app list by pinch

    Yeah, I think this is a good idea! I'm currently working on this feature and I'll upload a picture as soon as possible. The feature to zoom-in or zoom-out by pinch is called "Semantic Zoom".

    just some of my ideas maybe u can rework some

    the nav bar i made it so u can swap buttons for like if you are coming from Samsung and u can maybe add a camera shortcut in the extreme right .

    Action Center now have notification tiles ... that show three message previews.
    each tile flips if more than 3 messages or notifications come in per app.
    notification tiles also expand to show all notifications and allow you to swipe away individual messages leaving only the ones you want to check back.
    also a tap on hold gives u more options like reply and delete like in the email app there but it will be app and developer dependent.
    also the quick toggels are on / off in my image to get to that setting you tap and hold and poof you in wifi settings etc

    Settings - i sorted it and grouped them off as they should have been it also now has search you can add more colour to it if you wish.

    SHARE menu now has quick share large persistent tiles for things like NFC , Bluetooth, etc even if they are off as it should be.
    apps are gouped by messaging , social and others.

    BTW i voted for u ... im kind done with WP UI designs im now thinking of innovative software features.

    You could at least make your criticism constructive by telling us what's wrong with it.

    I personally like this idea and the whole black/white menus get a little stale after a while.

    Good job man! I love all your designs and ideas. The settings picture was the first I have made and it's not so good, so it's the first I will change I'm trying to combine your ideas with mine, so stay tuned!

    Thank you for creating those, I really hope that Micorsoft implements this into the Windows visuals.

    The App Store really needs makeover. It's depressing. Maybe in Windows 10 we'll see some changes.

    You can try to eliminate the hamburger (or any) button on the top which is reminiscent of the android interface... Using the default Windows phone menu buttons with the three dots would look nice...
