Be brings Behance to Windows Phone in a beautiful app


Behance is a platform for artists to promote their work. You'll find graphic design, photography, illustration and more on Behance ( behance.net). They have official apps out for Android and iOS, but nothing for Windows Phone. We don't have any info on any upcoming plans for the company to make an official app for Windows Phone, but we do have an excellent third-party app already available. It's time to check out 'be' for Windows Phone.

Head into the Windows Phone Store and you'll find 'be', currently in beta. It's currently at version and is the first step in bringing features from Behance to Windows Phone.

  • Here's what features you'll currently get with be on Windows Phone:
  • Discover Projects, Creators, and Collections
  • Advanced search for Projects, Creators, and Collections
  • View projects
  • View a Creator's Projects, Collections, Appreciations, and Works-In-Progress
  • View all the Projects in a Collection


Not bad for a beta and one that's limited by the APIs currently available. Behance is owned by Adobe and there's some work Adobe needs to do with the APIs to truly make be the best Behance client on Windows Phone.

Here's what you can look forward to in future updates:

  • Sign in to Behance Account
  • Appreciate a Project
  • Add a Project to a Collection
  • Create a new Collection
  • View your Projects, Collections, and Appreciations
  • View your Activity feed
  • Follow/Unfollow Creator
  • Comment on Projects and Works-In-Progress


Our artistic abilities are non-existent, so we can't get much out of Behance. But we can appreciate be for being a great up and coming app for Behance fans on Windows Phone.

Grab the beta version of be and let us (and the developers) know what you think of the app!

Be brings Behance to Windows Phone in a beautiful app


It's definitely in my plans. Unfortunately because I started developing this before Microsoft announced Universal Apps, I'd have to re-write a lot of it to bring it to Windows 8.1. I'm also concerned as a developer what Adobe is doing with the Behance API. Half of it has been broken for months. Thanks for your interest though. :)

Nokia Storyteller got updated, with no changelog, of course. It doesn't seem to be beta anymore though. Or did it go out of beta earlier? I'm just not using it much, couldn't notice.

I actually never heard of it till now. Download the app. Jeez for a beta it's pretty good. I enjoyed using it. Something I'll keep ND see how it developed 's along.

Ah, such a well designed app. Even though I don't frequently use Behance, I'll just keep it because its pretty! :-)

Thank you for bringing this elegant Behance app to Windows Phone. As a graphic designer I'm loving the ergonomy and design. Just hoping for Adobe to let us enjoy the full features.
