Metro Guideline for LOB Application

    Question

  • Is there a guideline for designing a reasonable LOB application using Metro UX.  Due to the lack of MS providing a guideline, there are many metro inspired fan art in the web similar to this one below http://www.theverge.com/2012/2/24/2822891/windows-desktop-ui-concept.

    Also with the introduction on Radial menu in "OneNote MX", could that where the design guideline can go?  Am I the only one that thinks this needs to be solved for Win8 to succeed?

  • Hi Gaja,

    Currently there is not any separate published guidance.  Metro UX guidelines still apply however.  OneNote does solve some issues uniquely for sure!

  • Jeff,

    Not sure how Metro UX guidelines still apply for a LOB application.  Can you please elaborate or point me to documentation related to Metro UX where this will be applicable for LOB?

    Thanks,

  • The principals all still apply.  I think what you are looking for is not guidelines but an example correct?  We do not currently have any sample or example.  An LOB app has many different meaning to me.  Do you have a particular question about how to implement something?
