Would anyone be interested in developing a desktop application with moi that revolves around the Habs?
I've already started building the UI and it would include features such as HF boards built into it (users wouldn't have to open a web browser), schedule, news etc.
As of now it will strictly for Windows as it uses the .NET 4.5 framework and Windows Presentation Foundation (just so I'm clear it's built using C#).
Not looking for experienced developers as I know time can be a challenge. I'd take any help I can get whether you are a student in comp sci or a hobbyist.
My reasoning for this:
I've always hated having to open a browser with multiple tabs, chat client, etc just to get the information I want. The ultimate goal is to have this application to cross platform including mobile.
Let me know if you are interested by posting or by PM.
Example of UI (still a work in progress):

I figured first a desktop application to generate interest. I do plan on making an Android/iOS (barring there is interest). Since BB10 allows you to side load android apps that kills 2 birds with one stone.
I'd most likely use Mono to make it cross platform because it makes life easier then having to re-write everything. Right now it's a private project that I have someone interested in helping develop. Once it's close to done I will announce a beta round to a few select members here.
It's actually my first project so people will have to bare with me/us.
I may be able to help with a BB10 app. I have tried to build a thrid party habs app already and haven't gotten far and really haven't got a chance to get back to it in a while. I have all the software downloaded just a matter of coding.
