Forums - Mobile Discussion - Need your help for My windows8 app

couple of months ago i decided to learn how to make an app for windows 8 (mobile and pc). So  i spent around 2 hours every weekend to learn how to create windows 8 app and i finished the fisrt version which is a basic app that reads my rss feed and display it . I did this to learn but now i think it is not a bad idea if i get help from all of the community of vgchartz to improve it and we all use it. the app basically suppose to display all the top gaming news but i think it is better to display also vghcartz communnity posts as well, i think there are many apps that you download that tell you all the gaming news you want and i really don't have time to keep up , usually i work from morning until 7-8 so i don't have a lot of time to create new rss feed. So sometimes i see great post or reviews in here that i think i can post in the app what do you think? does anyone interested?

 

also i need some help with the splash screen does anyone here is expert in using photoshop i did my best but still not good enough.

finally, is anyone here has knowledge about developing windows 8 i have an issue with the name of the app so i wanna change it but it seems it is not as easy as i thought

I'm a 4th year student studying 3D and 2D graphics. Are you wanting a logo or what are you looking for?

This is what i have right now. so i have to create an image in this size 620x300 which you see in middle and the rest would be a color because of all the screen sizes. i am not still sure how to make it better, probably i need a neat logo instead of what i have.

by the way i appreciate the help.



So is that what people see when they look at your app? I think you need a logo. Do you want a symbol, letters? What do you want and what colors do you like?

For some reason I can't quote people but no problem for helping.

i am thinking of a logo and infront of it "Top Gaming News" . i don't know which color is better, you can use whatever you think is better but i just need to know the color you use for around the the logo, as i mentioned before i have to draw the color with the code as well so i wanna match with what you wanna use ( need to know the hexadecimal number)

by the way, when you open the app the background color is black i thought this would help you .

 

also i will mention your name in the app (if you want obviously) for helping.



Yeah I would appreciate the recognition. Why does the resolution have to be so low? Is this for Windows Phone 8 or just Windows 8 or both?

Ok so the name of the app is Top Gaming News and obviously it is self explanatory but are there any stand out features for the app? I want to know what I should base the logo around and what message I should try to get across to the consumer

Just downloaded it to check it out...not bad for a first app made by 1 guy. With some polish it has potential to be a good rss news app...
