Is this the AccuWeather Windows 8 app?

7

imageMobilityDigest have recorded this video of an AccuWeather app for “windows slate” which uses out-of-browser Silverlight and is labelled “for demonstration purposes only.”

At appears to have very Metro-inspired, and the left-sided menu is certainly reminiscent of the right-sided slide-in menu on Windows 8.

If the app is in fact a real Windows 8 app it  will be encouraging that Silverlight development will find a home in Windows 8 after all.

Install the app at AccuWeather here and read more at MobilityDigest here.

      He is using a HP Touchsmart screen to showcase it.  Win8 slates will be awesome.  Microsoft is working with OEMs and keeping a tight grip on production value.

    Wasn’t it Windows that used the left and right sides for menus in Windows 8, and the apps could use top/bottom?
