    Hello everyone !
    My previous concept, not bringing a great deal of fonctionalits (see my previous concept )
    I decided to start over everything

    You can then see that I was inspired by this image to design my new concept.:



    Especially, this concept is there so that I can bring it modifications. Then do not hesitate to express your opinion!



    As you can notice it, I was inspired by the image supplied by Microsoft to recreate this Start Screen.



    Like the iPhone 6 Plus, the icons (tiles) shall come down downward for the small hands holding one a big screen. The idea is that two movements Downward will make fall the tiles of the top



    The orientation of the screen in mode landscape is for me interressant on the big screens.
    The interface would be the same that on tablet and on PC.



    I thought that to close all the apps by sliding the screen to start downward would be a good idea. Express your opinion.



    For me, "SmartTaskBar" is as a Taskbar on smartphone. That serves has to reveal the applications as on PC and Tablet. Express your opinion.



    And to end, the interactive notifications, it is just essential. And for me, it should be in Windows 10 for smartphone.

    My concept in video: ( It is still better )



    The additions will be made according to your notices, thanks to you !

    One observation: The SmartTaskBar up-swipe might conflict with the hardware buttons on the phone. Users might accidentally hit the home button when swiping up.

    Nice concept again, and it's now more "faithful" to the tile-based user experience.

    Interactive Tile: Nice idea, but the user might run into trouble when trying to scroll through the screen or to launch the app. For the example, it's a music player. The user must then tap very precisely to hit the pause, back, next, etc. icons in the interactive tile. He also needs to tap somewhere else in that tile to launch the app itself. I guess it boils down to implementation, but it's an interesting idea.

    I'm not sure what to say about the tiles sliding halfway downward for those with small hands... as it would be difficult to handle the physical device itself already with small hands. Might make it look like there's a lot of wasted screen space. Just my opinion.

    Landscape orientation: Excellent!. Been wondering why this is not available in current phones...perhaps it could be taxing the battery since that would mean that the accelerometer is activated more frequently (even in the start screen)?

    Multi-task Close All: Now this is brilliant!

    Smart task bar: Also nice.

    Interactive notifications: (Are you French?) Nice touch, again. But not all messages are that short, to maybe this would scroll for longer messages? Not sure how this will look like with multiple notifications, as in the current version of the notification center.

    Making a prototype would definitely take more time, but I'm guessing you exported these images from some form of prototype. A demo of that prototype would be more informative, but of course that is not required as it might take more effort. In the end, I'm not a UX person, but you have nice ideas and concepts here.

    Yes it is not a secret, I am French. Not easy to write English but fortunately there is Google translation to help me ;).
    I find your very interesting analysis. I actually plan to publish a video after all your comments.
    I agree with you on the interactive tiles. But if I replace well following buttons, precedent and break and if I leave some space to reach the application. It would be better.

    Yes, it's true, it is good remark. But I believe that the space between the screen and the buttons can be used to make this sliding, I think.

    I see. I wanted to study French at one point in my life, but I only had the time for the basics.

    Thank you. Will be looking forward to the video, then. In the meantime, let's hope more readers would see this and share their insights.

    Oh, one last comment: Do you think it's still possible to implement transparent tiles in the new Windows 10 concept?

    Yes, I think that transparentes tiles will still be there in Windows Phone 10. I like this function in Windows Phone 8.1.
    In my concept, there is not a real wallpaper but it is always possible the transparent tiles

    As I said previously, the philosophy of your concept is basically the same as Android and iOs: Cute little icons for everything. I can't even see any application bars anywhere, they've been replaces by hamburgers, which are way less convenient.

    You should build upon what msft has brought us too since 2010. Not build it from scratch again. For example you could extend the functionality of App bars.

    About hamburgers, I meant the menu on the side (new OneDrive for example). The icon resembles a hamburger :P
    I've just realised that actually there aren't any in your concept, I was getting confused with another one. Sorry if my message offended you in any way, just said what I thought (although it was pretty negative. Some of your stuff is pretty awesome, like the start screen, which I love, the multi-tasking system, the interactive notifications, as well as the way you use colors).

    EDIT: J'viens de remarquer que je suis pas le seul Franais sur ce forum en fait :P desol si j'ai tout crit en Anglais, j'avais pas fait gaffe auparavant

    D'accord, j'avais pas compris que tu parlais des trois barres de menu, maintenant je saurais qu'on peut dire Hamburger

    Well, as I had said it, I do video of my concept. I tried to represent at best the images of my concept for better to understand my ideas ;)

    Do not hesitate to express your opinion on the functions of my concept.
    Thank you ;)

    Thanks for this video. The fade-in-fade-out transition from launching and app to the actual app launch is an interesting touch, though I hope that the speed will be a bit faster and snappier*.

    What happens to the Interactive Notification if the phone is in landscape orientation? And what happened to the network signal strength icon at the upper left of the screen?

    Also, I may have forgotten already, but did you mention something about live tiles? How they flip, how fast they flip, how frequent will they flip...

    By the way, regarding the Internet Explorer "logo", you may want to include somewhere in your post that the images and logos are for personal and non-commercial use since certain "laws" prohibit the modification, and use thereof, of company or product logos.

    And, out of curiosity again, we're grateful (at least I am) that you're sharing your ideas here for FREE but, what is your motivation for sharing or creating these concepts?

    *- I know the video is about presenting the concepts, not the actual prototype of the OS so we can leave the "snappiness" of the functions to the programmers later.

    What motivation are you talking about?? He asked us a ? with visuals instead of talking it out in a sentence. The I.E logo talk again is crap as it's not something being advtsd to be sold but a ? about would YOU want WP10 to have a look and function like this!!! Why do some make the very simple of things seem to be rocket science and they themselves don't have a clue other than how to ask "GOOGLE"!!

    Love the close all apps and I do hope that MS puts that feature in the new upgrade and I would love to see phone in landscape mode but I do think it would be taxing on the phone as when your walking with it in your hand the device could/would be constantly switching between portrait and landscape and be a total battery drain.

    I agree with you concerning the opening of app, more speed would have been better. But it is a concept. I have make exmeadows make slow transitions. For me, more pleasant

    What happens to the Interactive Notification if the phone is in landscape orientation? And what happened to the network signal strength icon at the upper left of the screen?
    I was able to make all the functions in mode landscape. The video would have been too long. For the signal icon, as it is a concept, all the elements are fictitious, as you know it. I was able to represent all the real elements.

    Also, I may have forgotten already, but did you mention something about live tiles? How they flip, how fast they flip, how frequent will they flip...
    I am sorry, but the translation of your question is not understandable;)

    By the way, regarding the Internet Explorer "logo", you may want to include somewhere in your post that the images and logos are for personal and non-commercial use since certain "laws" prohibit the modification, and use thereof, of company or product logos.
    I agree, it is a good idea, I am going to specify it.

    And, out of curiosity again, we're grateful (at least I am) that you're sharing your ideas here for FREE but, what is your motivation for sharing or creating these concepts?
    I like the design, to invent, to innovate. I like the user interface because it is the "human-machine" contact which pleases me. Yes is FREE ! (Phew!) ;) I like Windows Phone and I like share my ideas ;)

    I know the video is about presenting the concepts, not the actual prototype of the OS so we can leave the "snappiness" of the functions to the programmers later.
    I did not understand what you want to say (the translation means nothing) can you repeat the question?
