Windows 8 Application Porting Services
Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 are major growth opportunities for ISVs and content owners. This is particularly true for Android and iOS applications that can be ported to the new operating systems quickly. The new Microsoft operating systems open up new markets for Android and iOS applications that can increase their total potential market by more than 100 percent.
The faster your app can be posted in the Windows Store or Windows Phone Store, the more successful it will be. But, to be truly successful, your design must exploit the features of the new operating systems, not simply move an Android or iOS app to the new platform.
To successfully get your app to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, the porting challenges are four-fold:
- Understand and exploit the new UI and platform features
- Port apps despite ramping developer support
- Meet the quality requirements for certification into the Windows Store
- Get the app to market quickly
Microsoft provides resources to developers to make porting easier. But for many developers, especially Android and iOS app developers, the learning curve may take weeks or months. Can your company’s app afford to wait for months? The marketing benefits of being first to market cannot be overstated.
