Windows App Studio Lets Anyone Create Windows 10 Apps Regardless of Coding Knowledge

New software gives those without coding experience a change to create apps

The new release, available now via the Windows 10 Store Package, lets users create a basic application that can be exported across a range of platforms, including desktop, tablets, Windows Phones, laptops and Raspberry Pi devices. 

The release aims to enable those without coding experience to create and release their own app product without any web-developer jargon. In addition to their no-nonsense development ethic, the App Studio also suggests that budding app creators can create their debut app in record time, in some cases less than ten minutes. 

Windows’ App Studio gives users a range of basic options for their apps, including templates, RSS feeds and the ability to incorporate API’s for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram. The app also allows more experienced users to add their own HTML code into their app to add bespoke features. 

Apps can then be submitted to the Windows Store via Dev Centre for release, with no need for developers to even open professional development tools such as Visual Studio. 

While the release may leave more experienced developers wanting, Windows App Studio is perfect for those looking to improve their blog or website with a mobile app but who lack the coding know-how.
