always glad to help; and i really am enjoying the product by the way.
regarding the colour gradient comment: i was referring to the background of the app tile/icon.. it fades from a dark yellowish to a light brownish, a fairly pronounced shift. while there’s nothing wrong with that generally speaking, it tends to contrast (in my opinion, in a bad way) the ‘metro’ design common to the os where gradients are typically avoided, or less pronounced if used, in favour of flatter design (solid colours)..
regarding the wp8 version: totally understand you have to prioritize. if you ever do get around to it, would love to hear your thoughts on the process of porting from w8 to wp8.
