    Yes, it's the app list but I don't think it looks good when it shows up in the return to start screen animation. Hope it's a bug and not a clue to show new users that there is an app list to the right of the start screen.

    It's the same on WP8. Looks like the animation is made so that both the startscreen and the applist are treated as a single page and they both swing in, but the app list is hard to see because it's obviously not visible.

    I think that they've just changed how wide the "pivot" point is for each thing (look at how the start screen flips out a little then inward like in Windows 8.1?), and also sped up the animations, which leads to the user thinking apps now launch faster (when they probably don't, as we saw the dreaded resuming dots return in Battery Power Sense). I'm glad that they kept some aspect of the panoramic app layout and animations for that as that made WP really unique to me. The textbox selector animation has also changed - instead of individual text flipping over it's more like blocks of pixels like shutters. Also for the person wondering about the file manager, we do know they have added a file picker so one can only assume they need something to manage that

    Looks like the animations from the Zune HD, they were pretty good and gave the impression of layers making up the interface.

    Dude, seriously. I hate those resuming dots. Someone should start a uservoice suggestion to clean up app performance. I think this may be a more significant overhaul of the source code. But it should be a top priority for a future update.

    Agreed, I mentioned in another thread how one of the few things I wanted in WP8.1 was for apps updated/written for 8.1 to be optimised/written in such a way that we don't see the resuming dots as often - surely it can't be that hard given the MetroTube instantly resumes whereas Facebook Beta shows the dots for a few seconds....

    Minor changes makes a big difference
    I don't know how many times I've made a quick 5 minute UI change and gotten tons of complimentary feedback. Things like moving a button or link, changing a color, adding a simple animation, etc. It's the stuff I slave away on for 12 hours a day for weeks on end that doesn't seem to get noticed.

    From what I've seen so far the new animation changes fall into the different/interesting but not better and why did they bother categories. The new animation when you hit the start button is very similar to the current back button animation except in reverse and slightly quicker. You don't get to see as much of the app list flying in on the right and the tile animation isn't as dramatic. It's kind of jumbled together since it goes by so fast.

    The one animation that sticks out like a sore thumb to me is the window blinds animation that is seen when you access a list screen. It seems slower and visually messy compared to the simple clean animation we have now. It might look better in person in smooth 60fps but in videos it just looks jarring and out of place.

    yeah unfortunately videos and the SDK doesn't do as good of a job as Native Hardware we'll see the real thing in 2 weeks!!
