UWP apps

During today's Build 2016 keynote address, Microsoft offered an update on its Universal Windows Platform app for Windows 10, with a number of upcoming apps coming to the Windows Store. That includes Facebook, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram. Facebook's advertising SDK will also be available for Windows 10 UWP apps.

Microsoft's Windows and Devices head Terry Myerson stated that the company has seen a 60% growth in new developers with the Windows Store in just the last few months. He showed a slide that displayed a number of current and upcoming UWP apps. Some of those apps are already available, but future ones like Vine, Starbucks, Bank of America and others were shown as well.

A video was also shown featuring Boeing Digital Aviation, which is using its own universal Windows 10 app to help pilots replace their heavy physical handbook with tablets.
