Windows 8 – App Highlight: The Telegraph

Chicago Tribune app. To take a look at the second style, the USA Today app is a good example. And then we have the Telegraph app. This third app doesn’t seem to exactly follow the Metro styling and goes about things in a very unique way. Just from the screenshot you can see the choose to have the intro page resemble a newspaper, which I thought was a pretty cool way to go about it. In this shot I have the hidden ‘right-click’ menu exposed which allows you to choose different sections of the paper to browse. Here we have the sections laid out by large ‘clickable’ icons. This actually starts to look a bit more like Metro than what we see at the intro page. Now let’s see what happens when you click on a section. As you can see, this brings up another screen with even more clickable picture icons, each of these being different stories. And finally, we have an article to read. For the most part, I enjoy the way the articles are laid out (once you finally get to them), and they are pretty easy to read here. I want to start by applauding the Telegraph for taking a unique approach that is certainly a “Multi-Click” app, but one of that manages its own style pretty well, actually. It was nice to see they were afraid to try something a little different than most of the news apps I’ve played with, though I still maintain that a simple approach seems to work the best for me. My biggest ‘issue’ with this app is that it seems to take way too many clicks to get anything done. One screen opens up into another screen, which opens up into another, which opens in to yet a third screen before you finally find yourself looking at potential articles to read. This makes for a somewhat confusing mass, though I’m sure not everyone will feel this way. In the end though, I give them props for at least attempting to do something that no one else had, even if the execution falls a little flat.]]>
