    More colours in Windows Phone UI €“ Feature Suggestions for Windows Phone


    Hello everybody,
    I wanted to show you some of my concepts for a new WP UI.

    NEW Internet Explorer (Just some changes)

    Photos
    When you tap the map icon, you will see a map like Nokia Storyteller.

    Xbox Music - Now Playing & Xbox Music - Your collection (I don't like them)

    Nice, I like it.
    The settings one is a must need, and the alarm app needs an update because is pathetic...
    I need to configure the volume, the snooze time, and it could also have flip to snooze...

    Very nice. WP needs some colour and I think this is one of the main reasons why the design of windows apps has gone ahead of WP apps.

    The Bing apps on WP look good, but the core apps and Music and video especially are lagging behind their windows equivalents

    Well it looks nice, but it reminds me now the new google design. I think the present looking of the WP is much more unique. But I agree, maybe we could get some more colors on the UI.

    Frankly, Google completely copied the Metro design. So as for as I'm concerned, it's pretty original... Microsoft should try it

    Although nice, it's very simplistic. Sorry to sound blunt, but there's little to no variation in this. Just because Facebook had a revamp doesn't mean you have to follow that trend. But with these concepts though, you could do a lot more. Just need to mix it with Modern UI a bit, like use pivot menus or panoramas instead of tapping buttons to reveal side columns.

    The reason i truely adore this concept is that it does not break the Modern UI concept and looks a lot more vibrant and alive. Like the tiles felt when i first saw them. Hope this get massive exposure

    This is what Modern UI is all about, minimalistic and simplistic. There is no variation now anyway because all the menu's and apps are black background with a white font.

    Thanks for your feedback! As Fade_z said, I haven't changed the Modern UI, but I just added a bit of colour.

    That's putting it in generalization. The variation I meant is for an app having a 'best fit' UI according to its functionalities. The alarm clock for example, do you really have to have that menu button at the top right? If that is for other functionalities of the alarm app like timer or stopwatch, then wouldn't it be best to just use a pivot UI so users can just swipe through functionalities instead of tapping and tapping. And you already have the options bar at the bottom to reveal more settings.

    Point is, they don't have to look the same. Just have a UI that works best with the kind of app.

    I understand what you mean. A tabbed/sliding system like the actual one is very useful. The button I put on the right, near the app name (for example: in alarm app) is meant to go/come back to other existing alarms list. It isn't a simple dropdown menu like Android's one, but it's a simple link, instead of sliding left or right. Although a tabbed/sliding navigation is better, I had to put a button because it seemed to be too empty.

    This must be a first concept design that actually looks better than original. Usually people just make up some futuristic cr*p. This looks very nice, though it does look somewhat different than WP :)

    It does look like you're always getting a toast notification though :D

    I think the UI on Windows phones should be more in line with the UI on PC's/tablets. This concept is a great attempt at that, as I see it, and it's very appealing!
