    By the look of it, I get the feeling the latest update is something converted from iOS or Android. Or is it just me?

    I think I remember reading in the article on here that it was developed specifically for WP. To me it looks like a hybrid of both the iOS and Android apps, nothing wrong with that though.

    Its a separate UI from both. Its a native app. Besides, those tools aren't available yet

    Well, since they let the makers of "Candy Crush Saga" (or whoever it was) use them I figured it wasn't all that unlikely given the similarities. I posted this about the same time as Rubinos' article since there wasn't any mention of it when I first looked, Daniel gave a good guess in the comments to that article as to what they'd actually used. If they've used Cordova then that would certainly explain the similarities just as well.

    Facebook, Twitter, Vine etc all follow the general UX guidelines with menus, transitions etc. Untappd does non of that; no transitions, no bottom command bar (the guidelines tell you to put primary actions in a command bar, Untappd has them at the top), the main page is neither a pivot nor a hub, and so on.

    Have you tried the app?

    Removed for good reason.
    In any case, guidelines are just that. Check out Rudy's apps for instance

    Exactly, the recently re-released Expedia app doesn't follow the guidelines either but that's still a native app.
