This episode is the last in the 4 part Visual Studio Toolbox series on getting started building and designing Metro style apps. Previously, I showed how to use Visual Studio 11 and XAML to start building Metro style apps for Windows 8. In this episode, Joanna Mason shows us how to use Visual Studio's XAML Designer and Blend to make these apps better looking. She demonstrates how powerful Blend is as a design tool and why it is an indispensable tool you should master as you are building XAML-based apps. Bottom line: if you are building an app with XAML you should be using Blend. No more typing XAML. Take the time to learn it. It will be worth it.
