Sneak Peek: ✿+☮=❥, bringing the ultimate Liquid Daffodil experience to your Windows Phone

Liquid Daffodil should be a name many of you know by now. They’re one of the more pervasive and popular developers for Windows Phone, having made such unique apps as glƏƏk!, Add to Contacts, flyby! and JamTiles, to name just a few.

When a developer creates so many apps and values customer feedback as much as Liquid Daffodil, sometimes the Windows Phone Store just doesn’t cut it, hence the creation of the forthcoming ✿+☮=❥. By the way, we can just call that app ‘Liquify’, which is the name users can search for in the Store (or by the developers name, of course).

So what is this mysterious app? Check out our video preview after the break...

The app has three main sections to it, with one being truly unique and relative to Liquid Daffodil fans:

✿+☮=❥ Liquify Windows Phone

  • News– A way for the developers to give updates to users, special deal alerts, etc. all in one area
  • Phone Apps – An inventory of all of Liquid Daffodil’s apps, with one-touch access to the Store
  • Ultimate Liquid Subscription – By paying a one-time fee (and linking to your Live ID), users can “unlock” fully functional, lifetime, unlimited use of all of Liquid Daffodil apps

While the first two features are just plain useful for any developer with a lot of apps and customers, it’s that subscription that is really unique. Indeed, users can just link to their Live ID after purchasing and download a the free trial of the LD app. When linked to their subscription, the app will become fully functional.

✿+☮=❥ Liquify Windows Phone

The app also features a Live Tile with Unification support, of course.

What can we say? It’s a brilliant idea from one of the most popular developers on our platform. The app runs well, is (as always) very well designed and we can’t wait till it goes live.

When can you get it? It’s very close to release, so we’re talking a few days. We’ll of course tell you when that happens, so just stay tuned to Windows Phone Central!

Sometimes I feel like these devs don't rly know what they want to make, so they make confusing abstract apps like this that are a solution looking for a problem. Having said that, I dont mean to put the devs down. They surely know what theyre doing. It just seems their apps have so much scope but not a lot of sustainability.
Just my opinion of course

Curious, what's confusing about the app? It has 3 parts: news, app listings and a subscription service where users can save money. There's not much else to it, really.

I just... Idk, maybe I'll just shut it because obviously this app simply doesn't appeal to me. I'd like to know how others feel, considering our previous exposure to liquid daffodils many many apps

Coming from Android, that's exactly my thoughts: what the hell are these hubs apps and who use them anyway !? Just develop the many many apps the store is lacking !

Liquid Daffodil only creates the apps they want to, for fans who love their apps. This app serves a need, and serves it well.

Quality over quanity. I don't doubt LD's programming expertise, but it does seem like a lot of apps with a loose sort of reason of being get pumped out. Would love to see them (or him...i think it's just 1 guy) really focus on gleek or unification to bring it to the next level and not rush out another flyby, jamtiles, or amalgamation app.
I see developers like Rudy Hun really pushing the limits of what we should expect from our apps and LD as filling in gaps that don't need to be filled in.
 

The difference is Liquid Daffodil creates apps for fun. Some of them are the most successful of their kind in the Store, some are very niche, but they do it for fun and for fans, so its all good.

That's cool, if it's just a little hobby and such. It's just hard for me to get excited for anything coming out of that camp these days....

If you have things you want to see you should email them. From their feed I know they have some cool things announced, but alot of their apps come from user requests.

srsly you are part of LD and you talk in 3rd person about your company. whats wrong with you? I see you a lot of times praising LD apps like mad srsly this needs to stop. You are a dev behave like one! this just cast bad light on you. support and help your customer and stop fooling them.
Edit: this was not ment to be offensive its just my point of view

What a "dev" is supposed to behave like ?! Seriously, these aren't people with suits and spreadsheets, these people code mainly for fun and for fans, very much out of the mainstream. What's the problem with that ? Must we all look, do, behave, wear... the same way? Is there a code for "devs" to behave, and they can't address their group in 3rd person when posting as an individual ?!

Well, for starters, developers should behave and respond in a professional manner.  If you've seen past posts by this 'developer' you would understand why Forc3 commented the way he/she did.

i agree completely.
Infact, i believe the relative stagnation of unification is because LD has been very abrasive with other developers in the past and this seems to be causing a problem with other high profile apps getting on board.
That's my theory though, feel free to tell me i don't know what i am talking about!

I wonder how Microsoft will feel about them bypassing the store for app purchases (which, if I'm not mistaken, is a ToS violation). My prediction is that particular feature will be pretty short-lived.

I doubt its a bypass, I'm sure when you click one of the apps in the list you are taken to the store just like the Lumia Pusher app.

Nothing is bypassed. Users, via legitimate In App purchase, buy a subscription, and Microsoft shares the revenue. Simple.

It doesn't bypass Microsoft, it merely uses a similar feature like IAP. It's like a mini-store for LD apps and news, but things go through the MS Store.

I read the name as "Peace Is Love" but that's just me.
 
I like the idea of consolidating all of a dev's news and apps into one app itself, almost like a meta-app. And the subscription is a brilliant idea. Seems like something Daniel Gary and Rudy Huyn could really use as well since they have a bunch of fans who'll buy all of their apps as well.
 
I'll be getting it when it's released since LD seems to be one of the very few dev teams that still cares about 7.x.

Many of you are greatly missing the beauty, and the point. This model gives users the ability to a) get apps they want for a GREATLY REDUCED PRICE, and b) gets them all future apps for free. The impetus of the app CAME ENTIRELY BY USER REQUESTS. Liquid Daffodil, as usual, is just giving Fans what they want.

I don't think you should be apologizing for not making a sexting app or a photo app with hipster filters, or any other mainstream ethereal thing aimed at teens desperately seeking the zeitgeist.

Getting "something" in the future for free is really only a selling point for people with more money than sense.

Good deal! Look I have some very serious apps that get me past my day, apps that I use for work and apps that I use for my enjoyment. LD creates some very fun and enjoyable apps. would I use one of them if I wanted do work on the markets No but I do use them on my down time. The point is apps don't always have to be serious to be good. As for the creators from what I've seen if you have an issue with an LD product response time is measured in minutes.

This sounds pretty awesome, it's a neat idea! I was wondering what app this was when I saw it in one of Daniels videos. Looking forward to trying it.

Why is it you have to read WPCentral stories to the end to get to the main point of the story? I've head of slow-burn, but it seems to be a house style.

Look, I appreciate the love LD gives the windows phone platform, but I find their apps - despite appearing to be well coded and done - very.... weird. Their function or usability often eludes me. Most apps try to fill a gap that isn't there. Like a solution that's looking for a problem.
 
Again, don't get me wrong. I appreciate the attention you give our little platform and the production value of your apps, but why not try and make your apps a little less "elusive"?
