Slide Deck, a simple presentation app that I wrote for Windows 8, was just released on the Windows Store. It’s meant for building and presenting lightweight slide decks from a Windows 8 tablet. You should download it and try it out! In a series of blog posts, I plan on deconstructing some of the interesting elements of what it took to make the app and how to apply that to planning and building your apps.
Here are a few topics I had in mind:
- How I planned out what the app does and how it looks
- How I built the app layout using HTML5, JS and CSS
- How I used and customized the system controls
- How I created and tuned the animations with CSS
Try out the app and I’d love to hear what you think and any topics you’d be interested in reading about. Thanks, David
