Thomas Nigro, designer/developer for Videolan who is working on the Windows Phone version of VLC, has tweeted that the app is ready for the Windows Store, writing:
His tweet was accompanies by the above picture, showing the prominent VLC tile.
He did however caution that the app will not hit the Windows Phone Store next week, as he will be busy showing the app at the Microsoft product fair tomorrow. The app is now a universal app, working on both Windows and Windows Phone, which should help keep the app maintained going forward.
VLC for Windows 8 and Windows Phone was the result of a kickstarter which raised more than $40,000 from the Windows community more than a year ago, and the company has also received some technical support from Microsoft also. While waiting for the app however more multi-format video players have arrived on the market however, reducing the excitement around the arrival of the app in the Windows Phone Store.
