NV launches one of the first Windows 8 apps in the world

— Posted. Jul 2012

Windows 8 is the revolutionary new app-based operating system from Microsoft that some say will fundamentally change the way that we use computers. NV Interactive is proud to be one of a handful of companies in the world to release a Windows 8 app live into the new Windows Store.

Due to our long standing relationship NV Interactive had the opportunity to work again with New Zealand Cricket. Developing a Windows 8 app that has been recognised as one of the best designed applications. It is also one of the first handful of applications to be published in the world.

New Zealand Cricket Windows 8 app

This application was a well-defined and purpose build, the aim was to draw on the immediate action and news produced by New Zealand Cricket. The design of the Windows 8 Application gave us the opportunity to look at New Zealand Cricket in an entirely different way. We had more flexibility and influence over how to craft the images and content.

With all of the content broken down in to series users can find immediately the information they seek, breaking news and a live scoring is shown on your desk top as a constant update so you'll never miss any of the action.
