Microsoft wants iOS developers to submit their apps to test on its Windows Bridge porting tool

Microsoft is continuing to work on "Project Islandwood", its effort to port iOS apps to Windows 10. The company plans to launch a web-based tool to analyze iOS apps and is asking those developers to submit their IPA files (essentially the binaries and assets that compose an iOS app) so they can be tested with the tool.

Microsoft states:

"We want to make it as easy as possible to get started with Windows Bridge for iOS. In the coming weeks, we'll be launching a web tool that will automatically analyze your app for compatibility with the bridge and give you results right in your browser. You'll be able to see exactly how much work you'll have to do to bring your app to Windows, along with suggestions, tips and workarounds for any libraries you're using that the bridge doesn't support yet."

Microsoft released a preview of its tools to port iOS apps to Windows 10 in August as an open source project.
