Windows Phone 7 Design

Ribot and our innovation team at Tesco.com have really done us proud in the design and development of Tesco Groceries for Windows Phone 7.

If you imagine that the phone's screen is a vertical window over a portion of the application, then this is what the full screen would look like (click for larger version):

It's an absolutely clean and fresh design, and you access its various elements by swiping your fingers left and right across the phone.

(Incidentally 'Becky' is our very own Rebecca Pate who has helped project manage this application from the marketing and design perspective. A job well done I think!).


  1. Firstly, a big thanks Tesco for remembering Windows Mobile users (as well as the iPhone / Android people.) I just wondered if this app would also be backwards compatible for WM 6.1 / 6.5 as well?

  2. WinMo7 isn't even out yet and you have an app for it... (I'm sure you can see where this is going).

    Android android android.

  3. Windows Phone Development
    may be the latest smart phone platform, but it has already taken significant market share and poses a big aggressive threat to iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry.


As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
