Nokia have recently launched a new advert for their Lumia 800 phone. The advert features not one but three of the brilliant apps that we at Thin Martian have created. Bringing three of the UK’s top brands to Windows Phone; the Metro newspaper, the Guardian
and British Airways.
Below are images of how the apps are presented in the advert:
The Metro WP7 application is their latest release, on a device which replicates the easy to use and simply designed Metro newspaper online. The app is created with the user in mind, whilst making sure it retains Metro’s well known style that is already enjoyed by so many. The main sections: news, sport, showbiz, music, games, tech and those weird and wonderful articles that you don’t get anywhere else, are there complete with pictures and videos giving the user a whole new experience for reading news on the go. The app is a first with multi-live tile news functionality.
The Guardian Windows Phone 7 app presents constantly updated news, sport, comment and reviews in a logical display. It effortlessly integrates videos, podcasts and picture galleries allowing an expanded user experience. By using Mango’s Live Tiles, users can even place their favourite section within a single touch on the home screen.
The British Airways application takes full advantage of the Windows Phone 7′s unique panoramic menus, a progressive step in Windows Phone design. It allows the user to check their flight times, get updates of delays and receive maps of each airport terminal with the greatest of ease. The app also comes with great additions; it can double as your boarding pass for the flight and it can be your ticket to BA’s executive lounge.
James Clarke, Co-Founder and Director of Thin Martian, talks about the experiences of creating the British Airways application for Windows Phone in the video below. The video was specially commissioned by Nokia to showcase their key design and development partners.
