Watch the Graphic.ly Windows Phone 7 comic book reader in action

The Graphic.ly was one of the first third-party Windows Phone 7 application announced an demoed back in the March during the MIX10 conference in Las Vegas. We haven’t heard much about it since since then so it’s nice to see that things are still underway thanks to a 3 minutes long demo that was posted today. You can check it out at the following address here but make sure that you have Silverlight install before.

    Nice to see a near finished app for WP7. It looks pretty good, but it’s missing a lot of Metro transitions, which would help communicate what is going on. With the simple instant jumps between pages (not the side scrolling, you can see the transition there) it’s hard to tell what you are doing in the app. The flipping transition or the transition of the object selected would greatly help to explain what is in fact going on. The point is those transitions help lead the user, and they can help the user understand where they are currently and how to get back to where they want to go, instead of just instantly appearing in a different place without a reference. Good start and looks nice, but missing the point of Metro I think, which is a shame.
