Developing Apps for Windows 8
Windows 8 promises to be a very popular OS. Hence, there can’t be a better time to start developing new apps. One advantage of developing apps right now is, you have lesser competition. Once the final version is released, you will be hard pressed to create apps that will decently sell on the global market. Hence, it can be now or never for many developers. So make hay while the sun shines (rather, make money while the opportunity lasts!)
Microsoft has brought about some changes in the way apps will be made for the metro-styled interface. Amidst request from the developers who told Microsoft after the release of the Developer Preview that they wanted to render their apps quickly in DirectX while also making use of the Metro user interface. Microsoft has now added three new XAML types for supporting a large range of DirectX features. According to them;
With the Consumer Preview, you can now smoothly integrate XAML and DirectX 11 in the same Metro style app to create a fast and fluid experience. For example, you can now create a DirectX game and use XAML to process input, create graphics for heads-up displays and menus, or bind to your app’s data model.
We will soon update this post with more latest wallpapers, and Windows 8 Themes which you can install on previous Windows systems. In the meantime, consider trying out the new OS for free at Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Do share with us your experience, and how you feel about the OS. Cheers 🙂
