The most vital factors for the success of a certain operating system are its functionality and user-friendly interface, its compatibility with different devices and the abundance of convenient apps. It is not a surprise that more and more companies are introducing different encouraging approaches for developers to build more and practical apps that users will love, and perhaps use every day.
Microsoft has just released a new online tool for everyone who wants to build and share an app for Windows Phone OS. Today, the developing of software is more popular and available for users even if they don’t have exceptional coding knowledge and skills. The new web-based tool requires minimal efforts. It works with several possible templates to choose from, like Official Store, Movie Review, My Trip, My Favorite Band and many more. There is a section where users can include a text describing the app and even add content from the internet, like pictures and text. The tool makes it easy to choose different styles and colors for the app and even to create Live Tiles and to generate lock and splash screens. No code needed from your side – this is what the new tool does for you. It will put together the whole project you have created and will deliver a code. Your app is ready to be tested straight away on devices, or in the Visual Studio. You can also upload the app to the Windows Phone Store.

The simplicity of the tool will draw more regular users to give it a try and to enrich the collection of apps for Windows Phone. It is also a great source of information about what kind of apps users need. The new tool is still in beta mode. If it sounds appealing to you, don’t hesitate to give it a try – here.
