Lumiappaday #154: MSN Celebrity demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

Here is a simple app, not really something I would use though many people might find it useful. MSN celebrity is a hub to follow the latest news on celebrities. What I rally like is the UI. One continuous panorama sheet which you can scroll one way or the other. Note the different sized ’tiles’ which flip around when selected. This bit looks nice though it could be faster. This works in landscape or portrait and when in landscape it doesn’t just merely rotate; all or the tiles are different sizes. I kinda feel this would look cool if it was the homes teen or at least it took some hints from it, e.g scroll. Bar at the bottom to show you where you are.
