London-based developer James Mundy recently ported his highly rated app, Foundbite, to Windows Phone 8.1, and he found that the latest version of the platform gives developers more control and empowers users.
Mundy shared his thoughts on the Building Apps for Windows blog.
“Undoubtedly, the combination of Windows and Windows Phone into one platform is the best part of the 8.1 release,” Mundy says. “I’ll be able to seamlessly share code and port apps across the two platforms, saving me a lot of development time since I won’t have to rewrite my code.”
Foundbite harnesses photos, locations and sound to create an audiovisual memory. Now, in 8.1, users can drag photos between Foundbite and other apps without any intermediate steps.
