Windows 10 apps are now the same on desktop and mobile

Windows 10 apps are now the same on desktop and mobile

At Microsoft’s Windows 10 event today, the company announced that all of its apps for Windows 10 are now “universal,” meaning that they work across both desktop and mobile.

For example, Microsoft’s Office apps now work across mobile and desktop. Outlook, for example, now shares the same code but customize the display for each screen size. This also means that a full version of Outlook is coming to mobile users for the first time.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.
