window store and iOS questions
« on: April 15, 2015, 05:33:44 PM »
Hi,

I plan to develop using a Window 8 touch screen laptop. My target is Window 8/10 tablets. I also plan to export all the asset into a Mac and develop an iOS version.

I'm new to Window 8, but very familiar with Window 7. My questions:

- Is Window store what I should be targeting if I want to develop Window tablet (I'm fine if they want to use laptop with touch screen ;)) that is all touch base? Is this called metro app?

- What do I need (license, apps) to develop on Window 8? If I just want to tinker, can I use other method without committing to a license until I get serious?

- Does Playmaker have a touch action that will work for Window 8? Are these touch action transferable to iOS? Or do I need an addon?

- Anything else should know when developing for both platform and maybe Android? 

- Any sites I should check to get more info?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

 Not sure about the other questions, but touch will work the same on IOS android and windows phone and store.

Bye,

Thanks for the info. Yup, you're correct touch does work on all the platform. But I noticed only one finger touch. Is there Multifinger on Window 8 supported? With or without playmaker support.

Hi,

 I am pretty sure it is, otherwise it would be a very bad thing...

Bye,
