    Hi guys,

    I wasn't entirely sure this was the proper place to say this, so if its not, I apologize in advance.
    Several partners and I have just finished developing a new app and we wanted input from anyone willing. This includes advice and tips for improvement as well recommendations on how to generate buzz.

    We strive to make Cubic News a free Windows 8 app that provides breath-taking news of the highest quality along with images of similar quality. Major themes and topics include but not limited to financial news, sports news, global news and tech news. It features three ideal settings for delivering content and allows the user to swiftly look through breaking news or to slowly peruse topics.

    We decided to not use the standard pre packaged layouts because we found them rather tawdry and overused, so we decided to make our own interface with different transitions.

    Hello sarah752:
    I've moved and merged your two threads to prevent any confusion as often occurs when there are duplicate cross posts on a forum. In the future please try to avoid this activity and restrict your posts to one when they would likely be duplicated work.
    Thank You
    Randy

    We have made sweeping new updates to the app. We have increased the both the frame rate of transitions and made design changes to improve the look of the interface. We are currently working to get a license with Reuters to improve the news quality and we are working on various improvements to include personalization. The new release is now available to download and as always free.

    To be honest, I think you should have gone with one of the prepackaged layouts. They may be over used but there is something to be said for standardization and your own layout does not look very visually appealing.

    In response to your comment, we have given the app more of a metro feel, try it out and let me know what else you would like to see improved

    Ah, o.k., now I see. P.S. If you use Stardock Modern Mix, it say's your app isn't available anymore. If you open up Windows Store and search for it, it come's up.
