It's been a while since we've discussed building great user experiences for Windows Phone, so we thought we'd check in with designer Jon Bell, who works on the Windows Phone UX team. Jon's day job is designing the "communication experience."
Jon's made a lot of observations about the thousands of apps we see submitted to Windows Phone and had a lot of great points to share about what constitutes an outstanding app.
Here are a lot of other great resources to look through as you think about Windows Phone application design:
Windows Phone Official User Experience Guidelines
Jeff Wilcox's "Metro" Design Guide for Developers
Windows Phone Design Presentations
Windows Phone Design Assets
... and finally, a great piece by Will Faught on how to use the animated transitions in the Toolkit.
