Awesome to see that user input is considered!

Another great idea would be to change the background image according to what TV show you're looking at. Something like the way Xbox Live functions: You go to the Gears of War section and the background changes to a GoW background. If you did this, then you could remove the individual episode pictures and just have a simple list, and also remove the main image at the top next to the title (Although you should keep the title text). This would make the app more aesthetically pleasing overall, as well as more closely match the UI style of Microsoft apps.

Wow, I could talk at great length about the CR app. There's a LOT of small changes that would greatly enhance the overall experience. There's too much redundant info and commands.

The best way would be to model it after the Zune app that already exists on every WP7 device. I took a picture of the Squid Girl page and a another picture from my music library to demonstrate.




Alterations to CR app:

1 - "Squid Girl" title should be small and at the very top, just like the "KORN" title on the music app.
2 - Episodes should have a play button to the left (Like the Zune app) instead of the arrow menu button on the right. The arrow menu button serves no purpose anyway. It does the EXACT same thing as a long press on the episode title. Not to mention that the only 2 options are "Play" (which would be replaced by the play button) and "Information" (Which could be accessed by tapping on the episode title text, rather than the play button).
3 - Have the app change the background to a Squid Girl picture (Again, like the Zune app does). Then, remove all the other pictures. A single background pic looks better than a bunch of small ones that are barely discernable in the first place.
4 - Remove the word "Episode" from each of the titles. OBVIOUSLY everything is an episode. To my knowledge, CR only deals with video, so what's the point of having it there? It should simply say " 12 - Practice Makes Squid Perfect?! ". The word "Episode" takes up a lot of real estate, and causes almost every title to truncate.
5 - Seasons are sectioned off below, and vertically. Seasons should be separated HORIZONTALLY (Remember, think METRO!). The top title (Which says "Videos") is redundant. OBVIOUSLY they are all videos. It should say, "Season 1". Then a sideways swipe would take you to "Season 2", and another sideways swipe would take you to "Information".
6 - Episodes should be arranged in ascending order, so that episode 1 is on top (I stated this in another post, but figured I'd mention it again).

That's everything I was thinking. Hopefully you guys will take this stuff into consideration for future updates. It's a great app, but it could be even better!

(Sorry the pics are so blurry! )
