Latest Windows App Studio Beta release adds Store-ready publish packages and YouTube playlists as a data source

More than 1.1 million people have used Windows App Studio Beta to quickly turn their ideas into an app for Windows and Windows Phone and the latest release makes it even easier to publish apps to the Windows Phone Store and the Windows Store. 

Now, after creating an app and selecting Publish Package, you’ll receive a .zip file that contains Store-ready publish packages, with up to six screenshots of your app, the app logo you created and publication instructions. It’s everything you need to submit your app to the Store (in addition to a Dev Center account). 

You can also use YouTube playlists as a data source, so your app can display videos by user, search term and playlist. There are also new photo layout options for data sources that include Instagram, Flickr and dynamic and static collections.

Head over to Building Apps for Windows to find out more about the latest Windows App Studio Beta.
