Windows 8 – App Highlight: Flixster

  This is a characteristic found in many Metro apps I’ve tried – they suffer from a somewhat unfinished feeling. Don’t get me wrong, the polish of the UI is certainly finished and great, but the functionality in many of the apps (like The Tower) is somewhat limited. Of course this is because they are mainly just ‘test beds’ to show what Metro can do, and so it can easily be forgiven. If these same apps arrive in the commercial version of Windows 8 without additional polish or finish though? I’d certainly raise an eyebrow, that’s for sure. While nothing earth-shattering, Flixster does it’s job. You can find out about movies and their rating. Is this a full movie information experience? No, for that I’d want more on the actors, a way to browse your local theaters to find showtimes after looking at a movie rating, and other more advanced features. This does show off quite nicely, though, how much better looking a Metro movie information app will look and run compared to just browsing a ‘website’.]]>
