Microsoft release beta version of Windows Phone App Studio
Microsoft‘s new app development tool, Windows Phone App Studio intends to help users create an app without coding. This is great for Windows Phone developers that might not have the coding skills to create an app using standard development tools or for an experienced developer that would like to trial an app concept before committing to development time.
Users are able to bring any idea to life using customisable templates where text, web content, imagery, and design concepts can be added on to the free web based app creation tool. Getting started is easy – just create a Microsoft account, choose your template, and begin adding your content. Windows Phone App Studio does the rest. When your app is ready to go, you can download the app to your own phone, or share it with others by publishing it to the Windows Phone Store.
This week Microsoft will add developer payout in six more markets via Dev Center, which will bring the total markets that support payout to 128. The new markets are Costa Rica, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Malta, and Trinidad and Tobago. After this change is implemented, developers in these 6 markets will be able to submit both free and paid apps to the Windows Phone Store to reach users in 191 markets.
