For developers, Windows Phone App Studio Beta, which has already produced 300,000 projects, is now more streamlined to help them get their app to the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store.
As the Windows Phone Developer Blog reports, Windows Phone App Studio Beta was created as an easy-to-use tool for almost anyone to build apps from end to end. About 350,000 developers have used Windows Phone App Studio Beta, with 20,000 apps published to Windows Phone Store.
The update delivers a redesigned, touch-enabled UI, a rebuilt emulator to see changes on the fly, image conversion from JPG to PNG, full-screen image rotation and new templates for businesses. And now, developers can generate a full Microsoft Visual Studio project containing both a Windows Phone and a Windows 8 version of their app.
