TWiT.TV for Windows Phone 7

Overview

This application is designed to bring all the rich content of the TWiT network to Windows Phone 7 platform. My goal was to create a powerful media hub that would not replace subscribing to TWiT using the Zune software but instead to provide a richer content discovery experience. The application can also be used to catch up on content you might have not yet synced using the Zune client, which can be very useful as the shows keep coming.

The look and feel of the application is very much "Metro", the design language behind Windows Phone 7 platform. I also take advantage of platform level Theming so based on your Light or Dark decision the application will adjust as seen in the screenshot gallery.
