    iOS apps coming to Windows Universal Apps


    One thing that didn't get much notice during the Build keynote speech is that Visual Studio 2015 can now build native Objective C apps and target Windows Universal, including the iOS libraries. Apparently, King Games used this to bring Candy Crush Saga to Windows Universal.

    We may see a LOT more iOS apps being ported to Windows Univeral apps in the future...

    :)

  2. Widevine for Windows 10 Universal App

    I have to build a Windows 10 Universal App for video streaming and I already use the Widevine DRM to my videos on other platforms ( Android & iOS ). So, does Windows 10 Universal App support WidevineDRM ?

    Thank you iOS apps coming to Windows Universal Apps :)

    Installing APK to Windows 10 Mobile 950XL

    The Android subsystem, aka Project Astoria, has been put on hold and hasn't been present in various Windows 10 Mobile builds for months now. The rumours coming out (they're not hard to find, do a search for recent Astoria articles) is that having an Android
    subsystem slowed down the phone (so to emulate that laggy Android experience), drained the battery, was difficult to create in the first place, and took about 10 times the manpower compared to creating Project Islandwood, the iOS bridge.

    I really hate to say it, but if you want to run Android apps, get an Android device of some kind. The goal of Islandwood, Astoria, and the other Windows bridges aren't to allow end-users to sideload apps for other platforms, it's to make it extremely easy
    for developers to bring their apps to the Universal Windows Platform.

    And seeing as iOS apps are almost universally better than their Android counterparts, I would put more faith into Islandwood. If the Windows bridges succeed in bringing more apps to UWP, then we definitely want them sourced from iOS than Android.
