Neowin Interview with Brad Wardell about ModernMix for Windows 8

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by Island Dog | Discussion: WinCustomize News

Neowin has an interview up with Stardock’s Brad Wardell about our newest app for Windows 8, ModernMix.

Stardock is releasing its third Windows 8 product, ModernMix. How did the idea behind it come about?

It was during the Windows 8 beta. We just couldn't believe that Metro [now called "Modern"] apps were forced to run full-screen on a desktop PC. Seeing a weather app or a stock ticker app running full screen on a 22 inch monitor is nuts. The thing is, the WinRT API is good. You can make some really nice apps with it. But those apps are crippled by forcing them to run full-screen. A lot of people won't use them because of that. That's where ModernMix comes in.”
