Microsoft has announced that it is preparing to shut down Windows App Studio. The online service, which lets users create Windows Universal Apps without coding, will gradually shut down over the course of the next several months, culminating with a full sunset on December 1.
Starting on July 15, Windows App Studio will only allow existing users to sign in and no new dynamic collections data sources will be able to be created. On September 15, Microsoft says the application editor will stop working and the dynamic collections API will stop providing data to existing apps. Finally, December 1 will bring the full shutdown.
Microsoft is encouraging current users to transition from Windows App Studio to Windows Template Studio, which is a Visual Studio 2017 extension, rather than a web app. Similar to Windows App Studio, the Template Studio extension uses code generation to help users more easily create Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps via a guided wizard-based experience.
