Kids Metro Studio

My first metro style windows 8 application, its still under development, and need some work. The idea is to give kids the capability to make very nice pictures by combining others and adding lines and text,
You can check & download the application from here.

This is build by using VS2011, C# & Xaml. the application uses touch for everything, drag a drop, change size with your fingers for your shapes or even rotate them. i added undo and redo capability with in application bar, off-course with camera support and loading from the disk

Im adding the capabilities for working in landscape,sniped,filled & portrait modes.

I didn't publish any code yet,  I want to participate in the contest for the metro style app, so may be after that. even though if you need any help on metro style c# & xaml I will be happy to help.
