Building Windows 8 apps to run on all the new shiny devices coming…


Yesterday I wrote about Generation App, a guide to creating Windows Phone apps in 30 days. But I missed a rather obvious addition – what about Windows 8 Metro style apps?

‘Metro style’ apps are built for the new Metro touch interface for Windows 8, and will be able to run on any Windows 8 device, whether that’s full function PCs and laptops, or the different kind of Windows 8 slate devices running Intel or ARM chips. If you’re already testing the Windows 8 Release Preview, you’ll know that an Intel-based computer running Windows 8 can run all of your existing Windows software, plus the new Metro style apps.

So here’s some really useful resources to building Windows 8 Metro Style apps:
