When you first dip you toe in creating an app using the Windows App Studio you are immediately faced with the need to create a logo and graphics in a specific size and resolution, something which I think puts many intrepid users off.
Microsoft has now updated the Windows App Studio to make that process a bit easier.
The latest Windows App Studio Beta now includes a full-featured logo and image wizard with built in image controls and conversion tools. It is now possible to add a .jpeg or .png file to then be automatically populated to all the necessary tiles, splash screens and icons.
The logo and image wizard now also features 8 new app themes and the ability to further customize coloration and imagery. App Studio now also supports the ability to use an image as a header instead of the default text.
In this release the Facebook and YouTube connectors have been updated to use the latest APIs. This also allows for a greater range of content display types for each data source, e.g. in YouTube you can choose playlists, searches, or a full user feed.
The Studio now also features improved HowTo formatting for easier, intuitive navigation, an improved simulator, improved screenshots and a fully responsive Home Page, and now works with Windows 10 PCs and Phones.
