Imagine you have an idea for an app, but you don’t have the relevant coding skills to make the app. Well, now you can give birth to your idea in the form of a Windows Phone app, because Microsoft has come up with an ingenious web-based tool called the Windows Phone App Studio that strives to do exactly that.
Of course, Microsoft is doing this in part to propel the Windows Phone app ecosystem that lags behind Android and iOS, nevertheless, this is a nice and simple way of promoting more development. The App Studio has been designed in such a way that one can create an app by applying text, web content, imagery, and design concepts to any one of a rich set of customizable templates.
To start things off, one needs to log in to their Microsoft account, and choose a template and add the content. When the app is ready, one can download the app on their phone. It goes without saying that one should test out the app on a single device before publishing it. To make this happen, Microsoft is also simplifying the developer phone registration process and any developer can register one phone and load up to two apps.
Registered developers can unlock three phones for app testing that have the ability to load up to ten apps. To publish a new app one will need a dev centre account and for that Redmond is now offering a limited offer for registering for just $19 as a part of a ‘Summer Break’ program that will last till August 26.
