I have recently been working on an application called Toob as an entry for CodeProject's App Innovation Contest. It is a London Underground travel app for Windows 8 that will be released to the Windows Store in due course. It is currently a work in progress but I have written an article introducing the application and going through some useful technical information for anyone interested in writing HTML5 applications for Windows 8. It is primarily a technical article, but I plan to write up some thoughts about the Windows 8 user experience and designing for Windows 8 in due course. For those of you who can't wait, here is a sneak preview of my opinion: the Windows 8 user experience is as Frankenstein-ish as you'd expect from its dual-experience nature; it is both truly delightful and painfully awkward.
