Looks like another official app has launched for Windows Phone 8 and it slipped under our radar. 7 Eleven (https://www.7-eleven.com/), the popular convenience store chain in the US, released their Windows Phone 8 this last Wednesday.
The app itself has a unique UI, featuring a swipe based gesture system to navigate to the main sections. It’s actually the same layout as the iOS and Android apps, keeping the company design consistent. Those sections include special day-only deals, in-store goods like sandwiches and wings, coupons that you can redeem and a store finder. The app has all four of those sections laid out as tabs and you can merely tap or swipe to get to them
Users can register to get specialized deals and access to coupons. The deals can be pinned to your Start screen for quick access—not bad if you frequent 7 Eleven often. Likewise, you can find stores easily with the locator and mapping function, even adding your favorite location.
The app additionally features a doublewide Tile, though it doesn’t quite appear to be Live and the app has a nice banner with the current weather, time and greeting.
Overall, the 7 Eleven app is done well. Sure, it’s a design port from their other apps but it doesn’t feel rushed either and with the doublewide tile and pinnable coupons, Windows Phone 8 users who often visit their local shop will appreciate the savings.
