Yesterday at Build 2015, Microsoft announced that developers will soon be able to use their Android app’s code to make Windows apps for Phones. Meet Project Astoria – a new toolkit that allow developers to develop Windows apps for phones using their existing Android code. Here’s what the toolkit will allow developers to do:
- Build Windows apps for phones with few code changes
- Use a Microsoft interoperability library to integrate Microsoft services into your app with very little effort
- Test and debug your app from your preferred IDE
- Publish your app and get paid through the Windows Store
Microsoft states that Project Astoria is under-development, but the company wants developers to test it and give feedback to improve it over the coming months. If you’re an app developer, you can sign-up for Project Astoria today – so head over to this link to find out more information on Astoria.
