Filling in the UX Gaps in Metro Style Apps

Microsoft has provided some great design and user experience guidance for building Windows 8 Metro Style apps.  Unfortunately, the templates provided in Visual Studio for creating these apps are lacking some user experience polish.  

In this talk, we'll briefly review some UX concepts and how they apply to Metro Style apps.  We will take a look at a few applications available in the Consumer Preview that exemplify these concepts and discuss what's missing in the default templates provided by Microsoft.  I'll then walk through a template that I will be providing that addresses some of these shortcomings.
