Metro Apps with API usage

I was playing around with the Windows 8 metro apps and decided to try to make use of the community platform API.

I was able to implement the C# library on the forum relatively easily, some minor changes, and got the library working with a Windows 8 metro app.

I was wondering, am I allowed to develop something like this and distribute it? (If Microsoft allows it is not the question, does Blizzard allow it?). I realize it must be free.

My concern, is that each user of the app, would need to send a data request to Blizzard to get the data unlike a website that checks once a day and stores it in a server.

Yes, this is allowed via the API policy. Remember anonymous request get about 3,000 requests per day per IP which is more than enough for any app :)
