Developers and users who want to create apps for Windows Phone have found Windows App Studio Beta a remarkable tool. On Friday, Microsoft updated the app to enable developers to create apps that cab be built for Windows Phone AND Windows App in one session.
When it launched eight months ago, over 400,000 have since downloaded and used Windows Phone App Studio Beta. With its update, Microsoft is giving developers a very easy to use tool to build apps, and makes it simple for them to build one app in a single click.
Creating An App
When looking to create an app with Windows Phone App Studio Beta, users can toggle between the views to see how the app will look on the different platforms. Changes can then be made to the dynamic App Studio hosted in the cloud, and push it to users when they launch it. It makes it very simple to develop apps on the fly.
Additionally, users will be able to download the app directly to their Windows device. The app can be downloaded in the form of source code for Windows Phone 8.0, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows 8.1. The ability to get apps downloaded easily across different Microsoft platforms should make it easier for users to use them.
Truly Mobile Development Tools
With the changes made to Windows App Studio Beta, users can start from a empty app or choose from templates. Users can wrap a mobile website into an app, add native controls, or create templates for Windows Phone. This will make developing a mobile app so much easier and should get developers excited.
Additionally, Windows App Studio Beta will have Facebook connectors into the app builder itself. Developers will eb able to display the feed of a public Facebook page in one of the app sections, and will make for a great social or public facing part of the app. Users just need to register for a Dev Center account for $19 to get started, and they can start publishing apps right away.
Windows App Studio Beta is a great program. It makes developing Windows Phone apps easy, and now Windows 8.1 apps even easier.
