Developers: Create Windows Phone apps with Imaging SDK 1.2 and SensorCore SDK Beta

If you’re developing apps that showcase photos or that keep track of users’ movements, the Imaging SDK 1.2 and SensorCore SDK Beta can give you the right tools to make the most of those features.

Announced at Build 2014 as a beta, the fully fledged Imaging SDK 1.2, which is based on the same technology that powers apps like Creative Studio, Storyteller and Cinemagraph, is now available to download.

The latest release brings support for not only Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1, but also any Windows Phone 8.0 and Windows 8.1 device, from tablets to PCs. With Universal apps, developers can reuse code across platforms.

The new Lumia 630, Lumia 635 and Lumia 930 will all come equipped with SensorCore, which can be used to store your movements and make them available through apps like Bing Health & Fitness. The new SensorCore SDK beta opens up the possibility for other app developers to get in on the action. SensorCore can also be combined with GPS for the perfect workout partner.
