More Microsoft news!
Thanks to Microsoft's Build conference that is taking place this week, they've been dominating the headlines.
In yet another interesting announcement, Microsoft has announced that they'll be letting developers port iOS and Android apps into Windows 10. This sounds like a pretty smart move and will allow developers to bring their existing software into the Windows Store which will most likely make the number of available apps for Windows explode in numbers. We had heard rumors of this for a while but yesterday Microsoft finally made it official. Wired has the story.
Microsoft is providing ways for software developers to move applications from both Android and Apple iOS devices onto Windows phones, tablets, and other machines.
Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s vice president of operating system development, announced the new tools during his keynote speech at the company’s annual developer conference in San Francisco. The company was expected to unveil tools for moving Android apps onto Windows, and it went a step further in unveiling a toolkit for moving iOS apps as well, sparking cheers from the hundreds of developers gathered in the keynote hall.
