Jason Short (@Infinitecodex) just announced Metro Social App in the Windows Store. A look in the Store is enough to prompt this mention on McAkins Online. Metro Social is one awesome Facebook client, and I am sure it will give other clients in the Store a good run for their money. The app makes good use of the Metro Interface to bring you your Facebook stream. The is not a wrapper around a web component, but all functions of Facebook is implemented in the glorious Metro interface. Here the app description from the Store:
Metro Social is an intuitive, easy, and stylish way to browse Facebook on your Windows 8 PC or tablet.
