One giant leap is a Microsoft TV campaign. To give the audience more information about the participants of the program and get involved with the show, I created two windows app prototypes to facilitate client's project proposal.
The client would like two versions of the companion app. One is a standard Windows 8 app that can be installed on PC and tablet, and the other one is a Windows phone app. After meeting the client, we locked down to the following main features
1 Astronauts and their details;
2 Major events;
3 Social integration.
Since it was easier to reuse the standard windows developer kit, I was able to directly build the prototypes in visual studio & blend.
The design and the app was developed at the same time in the visual studio.
