Windows 8 Metro Facebook App by Kronos454 Windows 8 Metro Facebook App by Kronos454
Hi everyone,
I've always been in love with the Metro(or as it is now called, Windows 8) interface. It's minimal heaven, and I finally get to contribute to its world.

I give you the conceptual design of the Facebook app on Windows 8. It's clean, precise, minimal and I wish it was real.

Please favorite , and

don't forget to comment.


and visit my website,

On the news feed and chat pic, I would give the two panes borders and have them inset with the blue background, but very nice looking concept.

I really like the layout you've got going on, but I think the tracking of the type is a bit close together for it to feel comfortable. I agree with the choice of type-face though, I love Segoe UI and use it wherever I can. :)

Wooow Amazing job man...

Actually all (unofficial) Facebook Apps on Windows Store fucks my mind with the "Android Style"... These Looks a great app!

I wonder why Facebook has not made an application for Windows 8. Where is the Facebook and Twitter these times?

Maybe they are waiting till a large portion of users are using Windows 8 or maybe the standard Social apps will be used instead of individual Twitter and Facebook apps.

It would be cool if you add a possible view of the newsfeed along an another app. So it's on the side of it (if you know what I mean) ;)

This is a great concept, but I actually prefer Facebook's layout for their current mobile apps. Plus I don't like the fonts which are light and letters are too close together.

Well, it's a start. Over time there will definitely be some app that's more "pleasing" to the eye. ;)

Fonts are too big. And very probably, Facebook will never have a Metro style app for Windows 8, 'cause Facebook is already included in People App.

:iconkronos454:
Kronos454 Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
too big? They might look that big because this concept has been designed for smaller resolution, thus, bigger fonts.
Well not an official one, but someone will very probably make one.

It is the original Metro font, Segoe UI Light and Segoe UI Normal. :)
